New study indicates that west coast warming could be natural, not man made

Could the recent warm up on the west coast be more natural instead of man caused? A recent study seems to indicate that humans may have had little effect in the steady warming since 1900. The study done by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association ... [Published Examiner.com - Sep 23 2014]

Quotes

"From a fundamental-science point of view, our discovery is intriguing because the threads we formed have a structure that has never been seen before" Badding said...
...the sun as it formed, Cleeves and Alexander concluded there is too much deuterium present for all of it to have formed along with the solar system. "What this implies is if the planetary disk didn't make the water, it inherited it. Consequently, some fraction of the water in our solar system predates the sun" said Cleeves
"Why is this important? If water in the early solar system was primarily inherited as ice from interstellar space, then it is likely that similar ices, along with the prebiotic organic matter that they contain, are abundant in most or all protoplanetary disks around forming stars" study co-author Conel Alexander, of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington D C , said in a statement
