The arctic regions (where woolly elephants roamed during the Ice Age) are technically deserts today, very little precipitation, because it’s too cold there for the atmosphere to hold much water to fall-out as snow, so it’s obvious that the even colder temperatures proposed by mainstream scientists for the climatic regime of the Ice Age is absurd, but the correct answer is obvious, through an analysis of simple hydrology; think about this, imagine the intense production of clouds required for the massive snowfall amounts and accumulation of thousands of feet of snow and ice on the North American and European continents for the Ice Age.
And what causes clouds to form? Evaporation, mostly off the oceans of the world, as the warmer the SST”s (Sea Surface Temperature’s), the greater the amount of evaporation off those sea surfaces, so the prolific production of clouds during the Ice Age was because the SST’s were greater during the Ice Age, and those sea surfaces heated from sources below, geothermally, not atmospherically, because any atmospheric warming (by heat from solar surges, not bovine flatulents) is checked by the negative feedback mechanism of more dense cloudcover as a result of the atmospheric heating, which then cools it back down, like a summer rainstorm.
This geothermal heating of the oceans resulted from Noah’s Flood (see free ebook download of Old Earth? Why Not!), with the Ice Age immediately following, which ended circa 1500 B.C., when the oceans of the world had cooled to about today’s temperatures, and so, the engine for the Ice Age had run out of gas (so to speak); that is when the sea level rose dramatically, within about a hundred years, to consume coastal cities, ruins of which have been documented in hundreds of locations around the world. These submerged ruins found off Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Crete, Greece, Malta, Spain, Morocco, England, Germany, India, Japan, and islands of the Pacific, look like bronze age structures because they were, built circa 2000 B.C., not circa 10000 B.C. as would be required with mainstream science’s date for the end of the Ice Age at circa 10000 B.C.
And the catastrophic climate change which accompanied the sea level rise was obviously devastating to the ancient cultures whose ruins are now found in the middle of vast deserts in the Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan, and northwest India, where there was much more rainfall until circa 1500 B.C. And confirming dense global cloudcover predominated during the Ice Age, the plant remains from ice age soils along the Baltic and North Sea coasts of Germany and Poland reveal that subtropical biota such as palm trees, oak, cypress, and ferns, along with pines and maples, flourished there during the Ice Age, when the winters were warmer, and the summers cooler, because of the expansive cloudcover of the Ice Age, it’s hydrology 101, very simpe yet elusive to bibliophobes.
