Quotes

Co-author of "Preservation of a Preglacial Landscape Under the Centre of the Greenland Ice Sheet" is , of the University of Glasgow and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC)
"Our study demonstrates that the ice in the center of the Greenland Ice Sheet has remained stable during the climate variations of the last millions of years" said Dylan Rood, a former Lawrence Livermore scientist
"There isn't a lot of krypton in the air, and thus there isn't much in the ice, either. That's why we need such large samples to melt down" said Buizert
"The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles … hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages … And we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet isn’t going anywhere. WE are!"
