Climate Change: A quote from Kenneth Deffeyes

"Warnings about climate change usually carry the implied message that any change is going to be disastrous. Only seventeen thousand years ago, New York City, Toronto, and Stockholm were buried under a mile of ice. (In a 4-billion-year history, 17,000 years is the day before yesterday.)"

Kenneth Deffeyes is Professor Emeritus in Geology, Princeton University, and author of Hubbert's Peak, Beyond Oil and When Oil Peaked.
