One of my three uniforms on rotation for summer has to be a pair of distressed denim shorts and a feminine blouse.I love the way they balance each other out, but still give off an effortless cool vibe.It has risen by that amount since and the rate of rise has leveled.The graph shows how much temperature changes naturally with a range of 12°C and dramatic swings.In the twentieth century temperature increased the most from 1900 to 1950 but human production of CO2 was lower.Production increased dramatically after WW II, but temperatures declined.These are greater when you understand that a 70 year smoothing average is applied.
Think of recent cold winters and consider whether it was better.
In each the temperature increases before the CO2 contradicting the fundamental assumption of the IPCC .
The modern record shows a similar pattern with natural and human CO2 production.
Further tangible evidence of warmth is the existence of a fossilized white spruce photographed and radiocarbon dated at 4949 before present (BP) by Professor Ritchie. It is important to note the existence of the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) and the more recent Little Ice Age (LIA) on the right side of the graph.
Through the work of Michael Mann and others at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of East Anglia and given prominence in the 2001 IPCC Report the MWP was eliminated.
