      "Scientists detect a shift towards patterns more like those today
      where wind systems from the northern and southern hemispheres come
      together and stir the ocean near the equator so that deep, nutrient-
      rich waters come to the surface and support a diverse, thriving
      community of plankton. In the Eocene period, the oceanic biological
      system had been broad and diffuse with low plankton productivity."

      Comment:

      The hydrology controls the biosphere, and feedbacks of warming. No
      feedbacks are required if Milankovitch, albedo and so forth present
      warm ocean (with temps largely to warm to support hydrate formation).
      It is true CO2 is a flora loving gas.

      But it is also true that flora requires water.

      Meanwhile, the drought continues in NE and Los Angeles has the lowest
      rainfall output from year to date in recorded history--4".
