On Antarctica once being lush and vibrant

I have to say, there is lots of cool information in this piece, Antarctica’s fossil rainforest is a warning about climate change – Vox. I especially liked reading about how the scientists did the experiment under difficult conditions.

The only downside is imagining what the rest of the world would be like for the Antarctica to be this warm. It must have been a hellscape.

That article is also a good reminder that Earth can go on even if becomes unlivable for humans. If the Antarctic is to become a tropical paradise, it should not be because of what we have done.
