Time, climate, and the human past

An entertaining and gently informative ramble through many subjects.

Randall Carlson describes himself as “a teacher, geometrician, geomythologist, geological explorer and renegade scholar. He has 4 decades of study, research and exploration Into the interface between ancient mysteries and modern science, has been an active Freemason for 30 years and is Past Master of one of the oldest and largest Masonic lodges in Georgia.”

I share his time perspective: if you are not talking ten thousand years, you are talking short term.

He explains in the clearest terms what it was like to live in North America during the final phase of the late ice age, 18,000 years ago. Ice two miles thick over Canada (10,000 feet high) and coastlines 75 miles out beyond contemporary sea coasts.

A very interesting cat. Everything he says is consistent with my reading of all the books on climate that I have ever read. He has mastered the art of recalling it all, a prodigious act of memory.
