Ancient Plant Remains Discovered Two Miles Below Greenland Ice Sheet; Evidence Questions Current Ice Age Theories

Scientists conducting ice core drilling in North Greenland were recently shocked to recover a core sample from two miles below the surface that contained blades of grass and pine needles. So what's the big deal about finding grass and pine needles under two miles of ice? Can't we find grass and pine needles all over the place? The big deal is that present day theories about how the Ice Age took place describe it as a slow process that took thousands of years, meaning that when ice slowly formed over the land, there's no way there would have been pine needles and blades of grass still thriving. What this core sample reveals, however, is that the ice sheet must have formed very quickly. In other words the grass and pine needles were abruptly covered with a massive sheet of ice that left the plants in a relatively preserved state that could be dug up and identified thousands of years later. In a similar way, scientists have also found fascinating animal specimens that appear to have fresh flowers still in their stomachs, even while buried deep in the frozen ice.
What all this says, by the way, is that geographic changes may happen far more rapidly than scientists currently believe. Perhaps these Ice Ages are brought on by events that take place in mere hours rather than thousands of years. If so, it would require re-writing the history of planet Earth and challenging the beliefs of geologists and Earth scientists alike.
