typical. all the interesting info is at the end of the article.

"The Batagaika site contains a remarkably thick sequence of permafrost deposits, which include two wood-rich layers interpreted as forest beds that indicate past climates about as warm or warmer than today's climate," Murton told Sarah Emerson over at Motherboard last year.

"The upper forest bed overlies an old land surface that was eroded, probably when permafrost thawed in a past episode of climate warming."

Batagaika sounds almost Sanskrit.

The article mentions we have came out of the ice age. Nope, we are still in it. The Himalayas basically have prevented the the world from warming to its natural state. It also says the earth was much warmer.

The article also mentions the possibility of huge carbon deposits ... So does that mean the earth had higher cabin levels than now?

Now, climate change probably isn't very good since it means that what we are used to will change but in regards to the earth, it probably isn't used to be being so cold for so long.
