Why do some scientists feel that the rate of plate motion does not influence climate?

Group of answer choices

the tectonic plates move more slowly in warmer weather, reducing the amount of CO2 emitted to the atmosphere and cooling the planet back down

there is not close agreement between the amount of volcanic activity associated with plate motion and temperature

volcanic events do not emit much CO2 into the atmosphere, so they do not have an impact on temperature

CO2 only resides in the atmosphere for a few hundred years, so it does not have a long-term effect on temperature

Which of the following trees would produce a thick annual growth ring? In the first part of the responses, dry, wet, warm, and cool are relative to what that tree species can tolerate.

Group of answer choices

a tree in a soil that is usually dry in a year with below average precipitation

a tree in a soil that is usually wet during year with above average precipitation

a tree in a cool climate during a cooler than average year

a tree in a warm climate during a cooler than average year

Which of the following is a true statement about the evaluation of the polar position hypothesis?

Group of answer choices

the last two ice house periods (the ones for which we can accurately determine continental position) had polar continents, so it seems like they may play a role in helping to cool the planet

there have been some time periods with a polar continent and greenhouse conditions, so this is a bad hypothesis

floating sea ice would be just as reflective as land-based snow or ice, so it doesn’t really matter if there is a continent at one of the poles

the temperature-albedo feedback gets less potent as the planet gets colder, so while it is possible that this mechanism could cool the planet from hot greenhouse conditions to cooler greenhouse conditions, it is unlikely that it would be able to push the planet into ice house conditions
