    LOOK! Video: 50,000 Year Old Underwater Primeval Forest Off Coast of Alabama

    Fascinating, to me anyway. Doesn't show it here but there are tree stumps 1/2 mile in diameter. 50,000 years + more, this was dry land, and this is the forest that was there:

    [Edit: the info about diameter of tree I found later was incorrect; sorry]

    I find that fascinating in more ways than one. Think about how old that is and the fact that there were no industrial humans to blame environmental changes on. The sea level rose to cover this land naturally. This sort of thing happens simply because the earth is a living thing and is constantly changing ever so slowly.

    Where's the oil? Can you say BP oil spill hoax anyone?

    No, there are tree stumps in an over 1/2 mile area . A 1/2 mile diameter tree would be a pretty big tree.

    Yes, that's what I thought. But the rate of melting of the Polar Caps has been shown to have accelerated significantly over the past 50-75 years. Whatever the cause of the increased warmth, ice is melting to water quicker than average, and that means more warmth logically.

    That is amazing and really beautiful too! Just imagine what's at the bottom of the ocean that we have no idea about.
    Thanks for posting that.

    The article states: "Some of the tree stumps found are half-a-mile in diameter". Of course, if you equate that diameter to a giant redwood, you're talking about a tree 27,000 feet tall. I think there is a mistake in the article.

    A half-mile tree. I wonder how many 31,680x4s you can get out of one.

    Another case to show: don't believe everything you read.

    You're welcome, I love this stuff.

    The irony is that by becoming visible because the sands that kept it buried and stable are now gone, the Forest will disintegrate and disappear from the effect of immersion in water. I think in only about 2 years it will but a memory.
    But not to feel sad, there must be many more places of wonder hidden in the depths or beneath the floor of the oceans - including more hidden forests near the coats of major land masses.

    That or 50,000 years ago must really have been a looker...
