Re: Breaking News!!
The current rapid warming has got nothing to do with past natural cycles.
Your's is just another variation on the wearisome "The climate's changed before" (TM) meme.
Well no **** Sherlock. Who would have thought it?
And who told you anyway? Oh yeah - those same thousands of climate scientists who are also telling us that the current warming has nothing to do with any natural cycle.
ALL the natural forcings and cycles are currently in the negative. ALL of them.
The Milankovitch cycles - both orbital and axia.
The sun's TSI cycle - now at the lowest for a century and falling since 1950 while temperatures soared.
The aerosol global dimming - now at it's highest thanks to China and India.
The PDO - in the negative since 1998.
Volcanic activity - slightly higher than average - should be having a cooling effect.
And yet the Earth is still warming with the Arctic and the oceans warming fastest of all.
In the past every time a Milankovitch Cycle triggered an outgassing of CO2 the Earth warmed.
Every single time.
The laws of physics dont care WHERE the extra 40% of heat-trapping gas has come from - they just do their thing anyway.
CO2 levels rise - the Earth warms.
Always has - always will.
If you have a scintilla of evidence of some magical invisible 'natural' forcing cycle that tens of thousands of scientists can't see but - amazingly you can then tell us - WHAT IS IT?
You could be on for the Nobel Prize and global hero status if you can show us.
