    The snowball earth hypothesis certainly explains some odd aspects of the geologic record. There's no question about how widespread glaciation was in the Neoproterozoic (end of the Precambrian) and the banded iron formations of that age are hard to explain otherwise. Snowball Earth is awesome stuff because it's controversial and has stirred up the experts, proving the power of the scientific method to take us toward truth.

    Considering the fact that global warming has made the earth gradually warmer, it seems the father back you go, the colder it was, so the snowball earth theory makes sense.

    The earth has been all sorts of temperatures. It hasn't been a linear progression. A sine wave maybe.

    Yup. An upward sloping sine wave perhaps? Thought I saw that in Bio class once, you know, because of increased greenhouse effect due to industrialisation... etc etc etc...
    Or maybe that was only in the past few decades, I dunno...

    The theory also says that the way the earth got out of being in a snowball state was the rapid increase from carbon dioxide from volcanoes raised the levels of carbon dioxide to unimaginable numbers. It basically created a greenhouse effect from hell. Temperatures ranged from 124-140 degrees.

    endparenthesis, I knew somebody would tell me that.. should've made it clear in my post that that's not what I meant. I know it varies... most of the east coast has been unusually cold this winter, but still, in general, the earth has been gradually warming.

    there was also an article about polar bears waking up earlier than usual. Many cubs will starve to death this year.
    funny... we are talking about global warming in a class of mine. it is worse than I though!
