@PeterAustin @Gingerbaker  

You are trying to conflate small natural variations with the manhandling of global temperatures caused by increases in atmospheric CO2.  CO2 effects overwhelm these smaller variations.  The ONLY reason we are not still in an ice age is because of the rise of CO2 starting with the beginnings of agriculture 10,000 years ago.  In the mid 19th century, the industrial revolution dramatically increased CO2 production, and we are now 0.8C higher than then.


According to you :


": there's no need for a solution to climate change; the very idea is somewhat silly;"

which is absurd.  You do not understand even the basics of the AGW issue if you can believe such a thing.

@PeterAustin Peter thinks the fact that the Earth is warming at the same time the "little Ice Age" is 'ending' is just a coincidence. Well, Peter, perhaps you might enlighten us on by telling us which natural factors, unrelated to human activity, caused the "little Ice Age" to end?


Hint:  It would have to be pretty dramatic, as the Earth has been steadily getting colder for hundreds of millions of years until just about five seconds ago (relatively speaking, in geological time)


PS - don't forget to explain to us how the Greenhouse effect is invalid, otherwise, we might reasonably conclude that the laws of physics actually apply here on Earth, and all the CO2 we have released into the atmosphere explains why the temperatures have been rising ever since agriculture (which releases CO2 into the air) was invented.
