Hi Willie,

Enjoyed your climate change videos. As a geologist at heart, I consider myself lucky to have had a whole earth perspective of our changing climate from 4.5 billion years ago. The perspective has seen me wonder in amazement at the presentism prevalent in the current climate change hype.

From geological perspective of 4.5 billion years, rising and falling temperatures and CO2 levels and oxygen levels, at least 5 ice ages and periods of no polar ice caps, the current perspective seems strange.

As an educator now I have shared this story with students, who had been quite anxious about the discussions surrounding global warming. They found solace in understanding that Earth's climate is subject to cycles of change.…
