(Keep in mind though that these events took thousands of years to happen, not a few decades.)
But to say just because there were warm periods in the past proves we aren't causing the current warming this time is like a lawyer going
into court and claiming that people have died in the past, so therefore that proves my client didn't commit this murder.
Let me ask you this. What evidence do you have that if not for man, the climate would instead be getting colder? There is something called the
Little Ice Age that started around 1300 and didn't reverse until the industrial revolution, when a lot of coal started to be burned, releasing more CO2
into the air.
prove that global warming wouldnt happen if man wasnt here ......... My point is , it happened before , it damn well can happen again ....... you prove to me that if man wasnt here global warming wouldnt happen
