Past Climate Change
The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. From glacial periods (or "ice ages") where ice covered significant portions of the Earth to interglacial periods where ice retreated to the poles or melted entirely - the climate has continuously changed.
Scientists have been able to piece together a picture of the Earth's climate dating back decades to millions of years ago by analyzing a number of surrogate, or "proxy," measures of climate such as ice cores, boreholes, tree rings, glacier lengths, pollen remains, and ocean sediments, and by studying changes in the Earth's orbit around the sun.
This page contains information about the causes of climate change throughout the Earth's history, the rates at which the climate has changed, as well as information about climate change during the last 2,000 years.
Also if CO2 was as bad as they say (level in the air currently) wouldn't we be living in a rainforest on most of the earth?
But us earthlings aren't very considerate of our planet.
You gotta admit, we're very trashy to mother nature.
and the big corporations are doing it the most harm, all they care about is profits
The real question is,,,,,,,,,,who are we to say what the weather is supposed to be, or not supposed to be........

We don't need an erroneous conclusion that it is the sole cause of global change, and in fact, is actually a minor player.
But this will all be moot soon, a few more years and this will be completely unfixable, so there is really no point on discussing the problem no one will act, I only hope people remember who took positions only on the first Rio conference about the Oceans and at Kyoto.

But calling it a fact just puts you at the same level of the alarmists, I actually agree that the human race is we, human race has a major responsibility regarding climate change just because we are the only ones that can take any action against the situation and are probably the major cause (not the minor player you attempt to pass as a fact)
