    That’s not what he said.

    The question itself supports that the climate is indeed changing and has changed in the past.

    Way cool. Makes you wonder what else might be hidden in various parts of the world.

    I know they have found mammoth and other Ice age animals DNA, but it has always been degraded. The scientists (and more often non-scientists) talk about cloning, but we really are not there yet. If we could you'd of thought that an animal like the passenger pigeon or Tasmanian tiger (Thylacine) or similar animal that we have recent reasonably fresh DNA from would of been cloned already. But heck maybe they have!

    Yea, I’ve read that about the mammoth. But the idea is that DNA from Asian elephants (closest living relative to mammoths) can be used to fill in the gaps. So it would technically be a hybrid animal, but supposedly would have all the dominant traits of a mammoth and by all visual appearances would be a mammoth.

    It's one of those things that I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not. From a purely scientific standpoint I think it would be cool, but like Malcolm said in Jurassic park "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.”

    Malcolm also said, "Oh God help us, we are in the hands of engineers! " which is equally as true.

    Lots of CO2. The plants will love it. And replenish the oil and coal. Of course humans might not do too well. But most species that have ever existed are extinct.
