This single chart compilation by govt researchers confirms what multiple studies have shown over and over again- natural climate change rules, regardless of CO2 greenhouse emissions. No matter what they say, AGW proponents cannot make the link between CO2 and climate change.
Clicking on this chart will enlarge it.
Several obvious points from this research pictorial.
- Past natural climate change has produced extreme volatility and variation.
- Reconstructed temperature proxies reveal multiple climatic periods of acceleration and levels of cooling/warming that far exceed what the modern era has experienced.
- Modern global warming is not extreme nor unique, even compared to the relatively recent period of the Minoan/Bronze age civilizations.
- Current temperatures would not have to drop by that much for Earth to enter an ice age glaciation period.
- Earth has been in an overall cooling mode for the last 10 million years.
These 5 scientific factual points are indisputable, undeniable, irrefutable and unequivocal. Furthermore, modern climate records have been heavily manipulated. Taking the massaged data into account, the real level of warming in the modern era is calculated to be as indicated by the purple arrow.
