1. Now how do you know that is unusual?

 

In a planet that is 4 billion years old.

3. Move to strike as non-responsive

 

Again, for a 4 billion dollar lifetime how do you know that a fluctuation in 40,000 years is unusual?

Maybe you are making an underlying point I am not getting?

Is there an underlying point? Or is this just a "how interesting" thread?

4. Glaciers have been forming, moving and melting for millions of years

Nothing new

5. The wind chill in Chicago right now is -52 degrees F

6. So the Earth was at this temperature without the burning of fossil fuels?

How can that be? Do tell.

7. we all know the climate is changing... it has been for over 3BLN years.

It will continue to do so in cycles that are beyond our control.
To claim that man has anything to do with it is disingenuous at the very least.

8. global warming is a good thing



I think doomers would be happiest if the glaciers return full force.
