You're exactly right. It is very normal.
The Earth goes through periods of warming and cooling, as evidenced by the well-established ice ages throughout it's history. What is not normal, is
for anyone to suddenly decide that because humans are now present, technologically advanced comparatively, and recording these events, we are somehow
responsible for them....despite their existence long before we were here.
Ancient civilizations have been recording events for thousands of years. We just don't seem to be able to get past their inability to know what
caused those events versus the events actually happening.
For example, the great flood. Proven by scientists to have actually occurred, people dismiss it simply because it is written that it was caused by God
as punishment and then of course enters Noah.... Just because the people that recorded these events believed the cause was one thing doesn't mean we
should disregard everything written.
Humans do impact the Earth, but our actual effect is rather minuscule. Even if we "speed up" warming by say, 10 years....20 years, etc....it is
nothing but a small blip and wouldn't even be noticed by scientists discussing this 2000 years from now. The cycles of the Earth have continued for
millions of years and it is nothing but ego to think that our technology driven civilization of less than 200 years somehow impacts this in the
Amazingly, every planet around us is warming. How come Al Gore isn't looking for the hairspray cans and gas stations to explain that? There could be
microbes to tax as punishment!!
