The 40,000-Mile Volcano

By WILLIAM J. BROADJAN. 12, 2016

Lots of interesting stuff in here and it shows how much they are just beginning to learn about our planet and climate both. It also means the effect we are having on the planet is not as predictable or hard fact truth as it's presented, not by a long shot.

I miss having volcanoes and sea ones and stuff.

I figure the planet gave birth to us, and in the past there have been species which entirely transformed it and nature ran with it.
One of them wrecked the atmosphere by pumping it with certain gases and so we evolved to be breathing them in.

Although I'm not sure about things like plastics and such, I don't think those have like a past equivalent of something.
Some of our meddling does, since we're just more animal critters o.O;
Weirdo ones.
We could work on our fluffiness.

Oh we're plenty fluffy, lots of fluffy piles of plastic... What a Face Of course we're leaving an imprint on the planet and I wonder what archaeologists of the future will make of it?
