Website tries to debunk iceagenow 

But their own graph proves my point

15 Sep 10 - I received this email from a "confused" reader yesterday.

"Though I agree by your views and your website I must say I am getting pretty convinced by the arguments on skepticalscience.com.

"I am confused as to what I should follow - the arguments for human induced global warming as per the above mentioned site, or the lack of it from your website. Please enlighten me.

Thanks for writing Nakul. I visited the website that you're talking about
( http://www.skepticalscience.com/heading-into-new-little-ice-age.htm )

Although the article agrees with me that the shifts between ice ages and interglacials appear to be "a response to changes in the Earth’s orbit and tilt," it somehow concludes that "a return to ice age conditions seems very unlikely."

Here's what their article says:

"According to ice cores from Antarctica, the past 400,000 years have been dominated by glacials, also known as ice ages, that last about 100,000. These glacials have been punctuated by interglacials, short warm periods which typically last 11,500 years. Figure 1 below shows how temperatures in Antarctica changed over this period. Because our current interglacial (the Holocene) has already lasted approximately 12,000 years, it has led some to claim that a new ice age is imminent. Is this a valid claim?"
 

No it's not, the article concludes. "A return to ice age conditions seems very unlikely. Instead, temperatures are increasing."

Didn't they look at their own graph? Can't they see that temperatures are now lower than they were just a few thousand years ago?

 

 
    Temperature change at Vostok, Antarctica (Petit 2000). The timing of warmer
    interglacials is highlighted in green; our current interglacial, the Holocene, is
    the one on the far right of the graph.
 
  • Can't they see what happened about 420,000 years ago? Temperatures were warmer than today. Did humans cause that period of "global warming"?
     

  • Can't they see what happened about 325,000 years ago? Temperatures were warmer than today. Did humans cause that period of "global warming"?
     

  • Can't they see what happened about 240,000 years ago? Temperatures were warmer than today. Did humans cause that period of "global warming"?
     

  • Can't they see what happened about 120,000 years ago? Temperatures were warmer than today. Did humans cause that period of "global warming"?
     

  • Can't they see that there is a cycle?
     

  • Can't they see that temperatures are now lower than they were just a few thousand years ago?
     

  • Can't they see that we rapidly descended into an ice age after every single interglacial in the past 450,000 years?
     

  • How in the world can they say the world is warming when their own graph shows just the opposite?
     

  • Can't they see why I fear that we are now headed into the next ice age?

 

Thanks also to Keith Connelly for this link.

"It seems as if Anne Marie Blackburn is trying to start an argument with you," says Keith. "But I believe she is like the rest of the them, tying to prove why anyone who questions or disagrees with the view of man-made climate change is wrong. To me it sounds like she's the one that is spinning and trying to changes things."
