2009) described this as the ‘‘accepted paradigm’’ that requires global temperature to vary in unison with CO2 . So, paleoclimatologists have been trying for decades to establish a relationship between climate and CO2 concentration over many millions of years. The more audacious of these have attempted to establish a quantitative relationship between climate and CO2 concentration in order to try to estimate Earth system climate sensitivity. Unfortunately, the proxy data for CO2 over many millions of years are very widely scattered and the results are equivocal.

Therefore geothermal energy may be ignored in dealing with the heat balance of the Earth. The Earth is suspended in a vacuum. Hence the only way that it can lose energy is via radiation. The Earth’s surface climate derives from a tenuous balance between the rate of solar energy input and the rate at which the Earth loses energy by radiation to space. Since the Earth has a significant heat capacity, it does not respond immediately to changes in solar input or radiant output. The overall heat balance of the surface of the Earth is dictated by a number of factors.

5% less than in calcium carbonate; Purdy, 2003). In a snowball Earth scenario, snowball events should drastically decrease the levels of biological productivity. This drop in biological productivity should trigger decreased levels of 13 C in sediments. 1 shows several periods of extremely low 13 C in the era near 600 mybp. Schrag et al. (2002) discussed the possible role of methane in the pre-glacial buildup of 13 C during the snowball era. org provides a good summary of data and theory regarding putative snowball states of the Earth.
