    I don't understand the question. 400 years ago, Earth was in the middle of a cold period.

    He has the wrong time frame, but I don't.

    Explain the increase 1000 - 1100 years ago.

    If man is the fault of global warming, then how did man cause this?

    So are you prepared to admit that the earth CYCLES from cooling to warming or do you insist upon the Chicken Little AGW nonsense?

    Night Owl has some unanswered questions here!

    I am aware of that, but it was you that said:

    So, I asked an obvious question: What caused that rate of increase and what caused 1850 to be so warm? Surely their cars wouldn't start during the "mini ice age" and John Deere was probably too focused on his steel plow line to get that diesel combine of of the drawing board.

    It would be absurd to suggest that Earth hasn't gone through periods of cooling or warming brought on by natural forces but science can't account for the rate and level of warming Earth has seen in recent decades-- except by including human activities.

    They can't account for it: translation- they don't know and so blame it on humans with no proof to back it up.

    Bwahahahaha........:D

    Yep. That and they have boat payments. Politics is driving the AGW dog and pony show. The participating "scientists" are just doing what anyone would do. Agree and here's $XXXXXX.XX in grant money and tenure, disagree and here's $0.00 in grant money, no tenure, and "how long will you be staying with us, not counting tomorrow?".

    It takes a brave and dedicated professional to resist a system that offers such choices. Sadly, the weak will always group together to defend themselves against a threat from the few who attack their dogma and gravy train.

    In the history books the whole AGW thing is going to be to hard science what the Bernie Madoff thing was to serious, thoughtful, and balanced investing.
