The most persuasive evidence for global climatic change in Earth history is the record of extensive glaciations separated by periods for which there is little or no evidence of yearround ice (Figure 2). From an Earth-history perspective, the climate of today is distinctly glacial. Much of the research that attempts to explain the major changes in climate, illustrated in Figure 2, focuses on periods of the greatest contrast. The warm climate of the Cretaceous period (approximately 100 million… Expand
