I tend to notice that the "scientific evidence" for climate change is rarely discussed. The quoted term used widely, but the actual data and interpretations are rarely outlined in today's public media discussions. In this post I share the most convincing evidence for the human-driven climate change. The evidence is based on glacial ice cores and carbon isotopes. I tried to keep technical language down to minimal.

The most convincing evidence for CO2 increase
Today global warming and climate change are widely discussed. Many people refer to "scientific evidence" behind the climate change. However, I rarely hear on public media discussion of the actual data and interpretations that that serve as the scientific ev...

Does anyone have a nice picture of epidote under microscope? It should have PPL, XPL views and a scale bar. Please? I would like to post it on my blog - credit will be given.

Thank you,

Have you ever seen how fluid inclusions look like? These little portions of hydrothermal fluids were trapped when a crystal of quartz was still growing about 2.5 billion years ago. We used them to get temperatures at which quartz was growing. We heat the inclusions up and watch when the bubble and the liquid become a homogeneous substance. The temperature of the transition represents the temperature of the system from which the mineral grew. These measurements are conducted under microscope and here's some videos I recorded to show you how it is done.

Want to see how fluid inclusions are studied? Check out my post about measuring temperatures of homogenization and freezing temperatures of fluid inclusions trapped in quarts. WITH VIDEOS!

I had some fun doing fluid inclusion studies. I recorded some videos and put it together in the post:
