You know what that means?
It means the world has been getting hotter for 40,000 years.
It's going to keep getting warmer until it starts getting colder .....again.
You made an uneducated guess.
When was the last ice age?
Do you know why middle age Europeans wore such heave costumes?
Because at that time we were experiencing a mini ice age, the Thames river was being skated on in July because it was frozen.
It has not been heating up the past 40,000 years.
It was 58 F at my house last night.
It is 71 F now.
Did I have a mini ice age? Has it only been warming for 24 hours? No.
The interglacials and "Mini -ice age" are all a part of the warming trend.
They are also inconsequential events because (actual) scientists still are not convinced that the warming trend we are in isn't just a spike in the
temp before another interglacial period.
So, the mean temp is simply the high point for the past 40k years. Life goes on.
Science and politics are not always the same thing.
Right now though, politicians are pretending to be scientists and the people that used to be scientists are going where the money is.
