I have great enthusiasm in deep-time paleoclimate. Through Earth's 4.6 billion-year history, the climate system had varied between cold and warm eras, such as the cold Paleoproterozoic and Neoproterozoic global ice ages (Snowball Earth) and the Cretaceous global warming. Our own Earth also experienced boring eras, such as the Boring Billion between 1.8 and 0.8 billion years ago. Studying climate changes in the past will not only benefit our understanding of the history of Earth evolution but also help our understanding of global climate changes at present.
