That is right. Coincidence does not mean correlation. By my count, the Earth has had seven major heating events that dwarf our so called climate change now. Likewise, the Earth has had at least seven major Ice Ages as well where the Earth practically turned into one big frozen snowball. None of it was caused by man. That is not to say that exhaust from factory and cars don't have some reenforcing or contributory influences.
A little like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Much like the Left's Covid response, their shutdowns did more harm than the virus itself, if we did what the Left wants now, we might effect some cooling or blunt some of the heating, but to what end? We might save a polar bear or a penguin, but at the expense of wrecking human civilization.
Not much. Rather foolhardy to leap into an agreement which punishes you the most while leaving the planet's greatest polluter, ie, CHINA, scott free. Does that mean I'm against a cleaner planet, smaller footprint and greener energy? Not at all, but these things WILL COME, but they must come naturally because their time has come, they are practical and effective and MARKETABLE to the human community at large as attractive, easy and affordable, not because some blowhard in the Oval Office orders it to placate his pathetic ego.
No one ever suggested there was not a normal climate cycle, but as harmful, destructive, and costly as it is, the normal and natural cycle is over 110,000 years long.
Since we are compressing that artificially into a 200 year period, isn't it obvious that will be far more harmful, destructive, and costly?
And since we currently are just past the hottest peak of the natural cycle, we are artificially compounding a new hot on top of the existing natural max hot, which essentially will double it, something never before experienced by the planet.
