  1. Hi Craig, Thank you for your reply. My reference to mining was not related to the heat produced by mechanical work during mining. I will explain below. Imagine boiling water in a container, on a stove, obviously with fire as source. The container is only as much heated as it should be as long as it has enough water. If you drain the water slowly and maintain the heat as it is, (which means there not enough water / matter for the heat to get transferred to) the heat is then transferred to the container, which gets heated more compared to what it was before Now if we compare this real wo
  2. Averaged over all land and ocean surfaces, temperatures warmed roughly 1.53°F (0.85ºC) from 1880 to 2012, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. In the Northern Hemisphere, where most of Earth's land mass is located, the three decades from 1983 to 2012 were likely the warmest 30-year period of the last 1400 years, according to the IPCC. Source UCAR While greenhouse gases are for sure to cause global warming, they alone are not the reason for increase in earth's temperature. Just curious to know if the increase in earth's temperature is due of excessive mining (of all sor
