Ah, the old COLOR="White" trick. I use that in my signature line.

There was a thread a while back about showing tables, if any one cares to look for it.

For clarity note the 3:42 PM edit above.

On second thought I simply put a [i][/i] pair inside the BBCodes I wanted to not resolve. It sets italic and without printing a character undoes that, but it breaks the BBCode.
Anything that breaks the code and does not leave a trace is good.

Now how did I make the [i][/i] show up just like that?
That's simple: I put a [s][/s] pair inside that. Like [[s][/s]i][[s][/s]/i]...
It just needs to be a different code than the one you're trying to break.

Now how did I make that code show up? Simple, I put... nah.

Even a 0,5 mile high of ice layer would be hard to believe.
There are lots of indications how high the ice was in (now) temperate zones, like this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_current_ripples

Giant ripple marks at Markle Pass near Camas Hot Springs, Montana.
Paul L. Weis and William L. Newman [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons


You know the ripples in the sand at the beach left by the retreating tide.
What about ripples exactly like that, but 100 times bigger?

The assumption is these were caused by giant floods when thick land ice starts to melt, creating giant lakes in the ice.
When the surrounding ice wears thin that side may collapse and release all the water in one gigantic deluge. As the sediment in the ripples seems to originate from hundreds of miles away you can imagine the scale and sheer force.

Events like these will happen on Greenland and Antarctica in the near future.

I bet such large/giant amount of ice, extra ice, in high latitudes, changed the Earth's axis a bit.

Glacials last around 7-9 times longer than Interglacials.
The ice sheet over where New York City is,was 300-meters thick.

If the mass of ice were not symmetrical with the spin axis,it seems that it could certainly perturb the 'normal' Milankovitch gyroscopic precession.

All Darc — Especially when it suddenly turned into water and started moving around.

Episode 453 from Scott Adams is up and he argues that while the climate science is plausible, the 80-year economic predictions are not. But wait, beliefs about climate divide on political lines. So if there is no way to know which is the correct belief system, the viable response is to choose a path the wins either way; and he suggests fourth generation nuclear and having carbon capture as a mature technology on the shelf.

Underwater tornadoes! (I used to live in Tualatin).

worst cyclone-related disaster in history?

The storm which struck Mozambique,Malawi,and Zimbabwe,may be the worst cyclone-related disaster to ever strike the Southern Hemisphere,according to the UN/World Meteorological Organization.
The Wall Street Journal has already mentioned the urbanization/coastal/climate trifecta whammy.
