An article by Bernie Lewin in Watts Up That is worth reading. I cite the particular paragraph below because it lays out the fact that the recent (last 700,000 years ) of earth’s history has been a continuous ice age interrupted by brief interglacials, such as the last 10,000 years. This is called the Quaternary ice age, and we are still in it. My inference from this fact is that humans have much less control over the planet’s climate than the global warming catastrophists would have us believe. And as others have demonstrated, there has been a continuous leaching of CO2 out of the atmosphere for the last 33 million years.
