By the time you read this, who knows where the debate will have led? My advice: read Origins: The Early Earth 21 all reports on emotive issues such as climate change very carefully, and with a healthy degree of scepticism. The atmosphere at present appears to be cooling, at least in the short term, no warming having been recorded since 1998. (Plimer 2009). The IPCC continues to warn of impending global warming.

Fifty-five million years ago Australia began to separate from Antarctica, and certainly by 35 million years ago the latter was isolated. The long-term results are still with us. A cold, circular-flowing current developed, and isolated Antarctica from warmer waters to the north. By some 4 million years ago, Antarctica was heavily glaciated, the trees gone. Today the ice on that inhospitable continent has immobilized water corresponding to an estimated 60 m fall in sea level. This, together with all the other water estimated to be present as ice, means that the Earth would experience about a 100–150 m increase in sea level should all the ice melt.
