Then you have not studied the evidence closely enough Spike.
Drillings in the arctic ice in Greenland has shown quite certainly that
there has been very aprubt climate changes. Corresponding with ice ages.
This is not new data, but something I have been aware of for at least 10
A quick web search turned up these results:
See: 12,000 BP (before present) - Rapid Climate Change
The Greenland icecap as a climate archive
The North Greenland Ice Core Project or North GRIP has reached the end
of the line at last.
One of the reasons that I find the global warming scare a bit silly, is
exactly this evidence.
Why worry about minor man made temperature changes, when nature has done
it much more rapidly in the past, and we know almost with certainty that
it will happen again.
Better focus on finding some way of terraforming an ice planet.
