Near this location are
collection sites of Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous paleosols used by Retallack in
his 2009 study of greenhouse crises of
the past 300 million years. Retallack
used stomatal index data for fossil
Ginko and related leaves as a
proxy for past CO2 spikes and
paleosol chemical data as proxies for
temperature and humidity changes. These
data show that global warming due to
CO2 rise is a not a unique
event in earth history and that the
magnitude of the coming anthropogenic
greenhouse pales in comparison with past
greenhouse spikes at times of global mass
