Well, they may have been "wiped out" by climate change, but caused by what?

I would put forth the argument that Mother Nature is greater than all the rest of us and a lot more smarter than we are, so if we do cause her too much trouble, she will bump us off as a dog would do to fleas. I don't believe in global warming or climate change or whatever Al Gore is calling it nowadays to fund his super rich lifestyle and to keep himself in the luxury he is accustomed to. What I would like to see out of all this hyperbole is to get off being dependent on oil from countries who do not like us and would like us to be wiped off the face of the earth. Now, if all the money being spent yapping about 'climate change' would be put to good use, such as true renewable energy resources or making ourselves energy independent, then I could get behind it. Until then, it is just a bunch of political thieves out to get yet some more tax dollars off a paranoid population.... More than my 2 cents worth

I would submit that it is. I think it impossible that we can burn a huge chunk of the hydrocarbons deposited in the earth over millions of years in little more than a century, and NOT have it do SOMETHING to the climate.
No argument from me. I think you hit the nail on the head. IMO, the SOMETHING that it does to the climate is likely to be SOMETHING distressingly uncomfortable.

Of course climate change is real! If it weren't, we'd still be in the Ice Age. Climate change is a fact of life. Always has been, likely always will be.
When the rapid burning of hydrocarbons is combined with the natural cycle of climate change, it seems likely that the process of climate change is being accelerrated. Time will tell!

Anyone think this is possible or am I thinking too much?
Not only is that plausible, but we will soon discover from the landers on Mars that it too had a flourishing population and ecosphere that was destroyed by Martian SUV's. That little droplet of water that we saw is all that remains.
