Global Warming--Perspectives

Recall that we are in an "interglacial" period--which happens to mean that it's a lot warmer than usual on Earth. (Think of that as you pay next winter's heating bills...)

See that "hotspot" WAAAAAYYYYYY over on the right-hand-side of the graph? That's the last few thousand years.

To revert, as AlGore wishes, to the "pristine past" would mean that Al might have to trade in his little rowboat for an old Coast Guard icebreaker.
