Magic Leap teams up with Lucas Films for a Star Wars AR demo – yep there goes all our money http://tnw.me/asE0MdX
Last fall we showed you a demo of Magic Leap's augmented reality technology which can shoot an impressive clip without any special effects. So fast forward

Earth's Plates Change Over Time

⇛ The GIF is showing frame by frame in 1 million year increment model of tectonic movement.

⇚ According to Sabin Zahirovic, a geodynamicist at the University of Sydney in Australia the tectonic plates can change their motion (speed and direction) over geologically short periods of time, about 1 million years.

⇎ Earth is in a constant state of change and it looks different than it was 250 million years ago when there was only one continent, called Pangaea, and one ocean, called Panthalassa.

⇕ At an average rate of 1.53 cm, land masses move apart and toward each other. The heat from radioactive processes within the planet’s interior causes the plates to move, sometimes toward and sometimes away from each other.

Throughout the Earth's history it has experienced three main climate 'states'.

For the last 40 million years it has been cycling between interglacial and glacial periods.

Before that, it was in a greenhouse state since the start of the Jurassic period, roughly 200 million years ago.

Transitions between these states are generally gradual, taking thousands of years, but there are exceptions, such as the Permian/Triassic Extinction Event, the Paleocene/Eocene Thermal Maximum, and modern global warming.

Again, I know, science, not politics, and I will stop posting about it in this group after this, I just figured it gives a little perspective for current events.

Also, because we're talking about such ancient periods of Earth's history, the numbers are approximations based on the geological records of the time, not exact figures, so keep that in mind.

+Leroy Oberto When the Earth comes out of an ice age, the warming is not initiated by CO2 but by changes in the Earth's orbit. The warming causes the oceans to release CO2. The CO2 amplifies the warming and mixes through the atmosphere, spreading warming throughout the planet. So CO2 causes warming AND rising temperature causes CO2 rise. Overall, about 90% of the global warming occurs after the CO2 increase.

We then add in man made CO2 releases and we see the effects of the present day... Which ever way you want to look at it, CO2 Amplifies the warming... The warmer the oceans the less CO2 take up.

To claim that the CO2 lag disproves the warming effect of CO2 displays a lack of understanding of the processes that drive Milankovitch cycles. A review of the peer reviewed research into past periods of deglaciation tells us several things:

Deglaciation is not initiated by CO2 but by orbital cycles CO2 amplifies the warming which cannot be explained by orbital cycles alone
CO2 spreads warming throughout the planet
Overall, more than 90% of the glacial-interglacial warming occurs after the atmospheric CO2 increase

3-D model reveals how invisible waves move materials within aquatic ecosystems
Garbage, nutrients and tiny animals are pushed around, suspended in the world's oceans by waves invisible to the naked eye according to a new 3-D model developed by mathematicians at the University of Waterloo.
