Instead, a substantial global climate forcing is required. The climate forcing must be due to a change of energy coming into the planet or changes within the atmosphere or on the surface that alter the planet’s energy budget. Solar luminosity is increasing on long time scales, as our sun is at an early stage of solar evolution, “burning” hydrogen, forming helium by nuclear fusion, slowly getting brighter. 4% according to solar physics models (Sackmann et al. 1993). 4% increase is a forcing of about 1 W/m2.

But these aerosol changes are analogous to the cloud changes that occur between climates with or without an ice sheet. , ice sheet area, vegetation cover, land area, and continental shelf exposure) cause clouds and aerosols to exhibit changes over long time scales, but the adjustment time of clouds and aerosols to surface conditions is fast. Clearly, aerosol changes should be included as part of the fast-feedback processes in most climate analyses. It makes sense to pull aerosols out of the fast feedbacks only when one is attempting to evaluate the specific contribution of aerosols to the net all-fastfeedback sensitivity.

The Indian plate was still south of the equator, but moving northward at a rate of about 20 cm/year (Kumar et al. 2007), a rapid continental drift rate. The Indian plate moved through the Tethys Ocean, now the Indian Ocean, which had long been the depocenter for carbonate and organic sediments from major world rivers. The strong global warming trend between 60 and 50 Mya was presumably a consequence of increasing atmospheric CO2, as the Indian plate subducted carbonate-rich ocean crust while traversing the Tethys Ocean (Kent and Muttoni 2008).
