...big change happening?...
looking at tree rings Dendrochronology
not only dates trees but gives us information about
what the growing conditions & climate were like in history.
i know this idea, more or less, follows in the Uniformitarian Principle
school of thought....but it also embodies some of the 'abrupt change' you
find in catastrophism models...which is kinda what you
are suggesting, implying, inferring
if you clicked the above link,
you saw the wavy line which fluxes above and below the average 'O' line
i personally think we're entering the warm-wet
anticipated in the Wheeler Weather Cycle
...mostly ignored nowadays.
**if you want to check out other 'dating' methods....go to the contents page of that utk.edu
site- (since some dating data can be a a proxy
for climate & weather conditions)
using ice cores, tree rings, etc etc....you might find that this eras' warming
follows historical fluxuation...once we start approaching the theoretical
100-200 year or even pass a 500-1000 year temperature medium,,
