I've been distracted, but I'm going to come back to Edufer's articles (both of them). There is a lot there to consider... Questions (I'm still learning about this): What is the (base) trigger of the clathrate gun? Is the clathrate gun at one location or spread throughout the oceans of the world? If triggered, is it an "all or nothing" trigger or can it be partially triggered? Aren't there other measures that validate (or not) the world temperatures seen in the isotope ratios? Are you talking about Stephen Schneider here? I don't understand this "Hall of Shame" reference as it seems to quote Schneider out of context and then includes a reference to the full statement which shows how out of context the quote is.
