There is nothing unusual about global warming (AKA climate change)

There is nothing unusual about global warming (AKA climate change)

Look at how many periods of warmth our planet has enjoyed during the past 10,000 years alone.

Civilizations flourished during those warm periods and collapsed when they ended.

Did humans cause the Minoan warm period of of about 3,300 years ago? No.
.

.
Did humans cause the Roman warm period of about 2,100 years ago? No.

Did humans cause the Medieval warm period of about 1,000 years ago? No.

What about all of those other warm periods? Should we blame Fred Flintstone, perhaps?

Now look at where we are today (at the far right side of the graph).

Temperatures trending down, down down

Temperatures have been trending downward for the past 3,300 years.

If that downward trend continues, we could be in a heap of trouble. While our leaders keep on taxing us to fight ‘global warming,’ we could be blindsided by an ice age.

As far as I’m concerned, all this talk about human-caused global warming is sheer nonsense, if not downright fraud. The record shows that periods of warmth – and periods of cold – hit our planet with almost consistent regularity.

  3. Hi Robert. Thanks for a dose of sanity. It was right about 3,000 years ago that the Northern Hemisphere insolation started going below average due to obliquity falling past 23.95 degrees. It is now – 40 watts per meter squared and will continue dropping for the next 9000 years. Time to insulate the attic and install triple pane glass.

  4. “But this time it is the evil humans causing it and it is unprecedented,” according to politicians, climate scientists, and liberals. The sky is falling, everybody run!

  5. The real issue is blaming human activity for global warming and climate change. Except for the effects of an all out nuclear war we are not that powerful a force for climate change. Our efforts pale into insignificance next to natural processes on and off planet. That being said if picking up trash, planting trees or inventing something useful makes you feel better by all means do so.
    What is unacceptable though is penalizing the species because of the agendas of a few wealthy and influential people who see that they can gain more power and profit by using Junk science, fraud and a gullible public to their advantage.

  6. If you say anything like this on Dave Tolleris Wxrisk.com facebook page he will be banning members of his pages which I think is sad that one can no longer have an different opinion and not allowed to share it while Robert does not agree with the warm side of the debate he at least allows the differences of opinion.as long as it is repectful.

  7. We are clearly currently very near the lowest minimum global temperature of the current interglacial (interstadial) period. If there was any reason in the climate change debate, we should be happy for a bit of warming. Any decline from here would likely take us back into the current glacial period from which we have only relatively recently emerged some 11,000 years ago.

  8. To be fair that blue line ought to get fatter the further back in time you go because we cannot be certain it was that warm 8000 years ago however the pattern is clear. We experience quite rapid transient spikes of warmth roughly every thousand years so our present day temperatures are well within normal limits.

  9. Could someone post a link to the source of that graph? TIA I find it hard to believe that we are/were close to the low temps of the Younger Dryas (spelling?)
