Close, but thanks for underscoring my point. Drastic, Drastic global climate changes. Christ was born 2,000 years ago. The first known organized civilizations maybe only 8.000 years before that.
At the same time, glaciers were retreating from vast swaths of North America. Before which those huge bodies of water (the Great Lakes) didn't even exist.
Would you see the return of that cataclysmic 'natural' condition as logically preferable to a degree or two of manmade warming?
