Larger version of 800,000 year graph of climate change
This is a larger version of the graph I posted, showing the normal cycle of heating/cooling the past 800,000 years. So, yes, there is a natural cycle. And it always stayed in a certain range. Or did...
Towards the end you can see that, starting in 2008, we are way above that normal range. Sure, we will still get snow and cold, but what we are getting is not keeping up with what we are losing.
At present emissions, we will continue to increase heating from co2 to the year 2100, when we are toast.
Unlike most issues, this one involves survival of the entire planet. Want to risk that?
