Quotes

...Benjamin Cook of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies. "If you include warming and increased evaporation in these calculations, the drying intensifies and spreads to ~30% of the global land area."
...have always been there and stood the test of time," says Neil Pederson of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, lead author of the new study. "What we now see is that big events, including climatic extremes, created large portions of these forests in short order through the weakening and killing of existing trees."
"Ever since the existence of abrupt climate change was first recognized in ice-core and marine records, we've been wrestling with the problem of why these tumultuous events occur, and how" he says
The agency said Friday its "geologists believe the sand and water injected into the well during the hydraulic fracturing process may have increased pressure on unknown micro faults in the area."
