Okay, this is cherry picked. What about all data? We know the climate swung all over the place once upon a time. This graph is designed to get the most wow out of people that don't know to think about time outside of their own life cycle. Sigh... Go back a few hundred thousand years and include that data as well.

I have no doubt the climate is changing or that we affect it in some way and level. These limited graphs do nothing but muddy the water for everyone and keeps up from figuring out how much we contribute.

We need facts, the whole facts and nothing but the facts, so help you, us.

"2. Why start in 1850? Because we don’t have enough temperature data before then to reliably construct global average temperature"

We do. They might not know it or don't want to include it.

  1. Are temperatures ‘spiralling out of control’? No. Humans are largely responsible for past warming so we have control over what happens next.

This was my thought. How far back can we see this and can we see the data set that is particular gif came from.

Yes, it's getting warmer. It's been getting warmer for thousands of years. It has nothing to do with human intervention. The ice age has been slowly receding, the only ice left is near the poles.

Brosephius. It's been warming up since the ice age...
