Re: NFC: Re: carlin?

Yes, Luke, you have very cleverly observed a trend. We
are in an interglacial period which has been slowly
moving in one direction. But this trend has been
happening even with relatively low CO2 levels over the
past several thousand years. With a (geologically)
sudden increase in these levels, trapping even
seemingly trivial amounts of additional heat in the
atmosphere (fractions of a watt per square meter) you
assume (know?) there is no change in the magnitude of
this trend? In your cleverness you ignore changes
evident in atmospheric temperature monitoring, sea
surface temperature monitoring and, more importantly,
in glacial ice core and sea sediment records. 

It is with relief that I realize you have no real
power, only the ability to voice ignorance in a small
public forum.
