Clueless ignorant nonsense!

In reality, the Earth has been in a long slow cooling trend for "thousands of years". Global warming, as the term is currently used, refers to the un-natural modern phenomenon that has resulted entirely from the human activities - burning fossil fuels and deforestation - that have increased atmospheric CO2 levels by over 45% above the previously stable pre-industrial levels that prevailed over the entire Holocene. Global warming and its consequent rapid climate changes and rising sea levels are very definitely NOT going to "benefit" humans or the other life forms on the this planet.....just the opposite, in fact. Many more species will go extinct.....humans may very possibly go extinct.
Thanks from imaginethat

Yes, it was colder 20,000 years ago.

However, it is the rate of change of global temperature in recent years that appears to be rather unique, particularly when looking back at the earth's climate during the past 22k+ years.

And that rate of change of global temperature in recent years, relative to the rate of change of global temperature during the past 22k+ years, is quite interestingly displayed here.:

Rightists love to talk about "bias."

Talk about this.
Dem senators demand EPA chief recuse himself on clean power plan rulemaking

Four Democratic senators are calling on Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt to recuse himself from overseeing any rulemaking regarding the repeal of an Obama-era rule on carbon dioxide emissions, because of his "closed mind."

In a formal comment submitted Wednesday to the docket for the repeal of the Clean Power Plan (CPP), Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) and Ed Markey (D-Mass.) wrote that Pruitt was unfit to oversee the repeal of CPP because of his history of lawsuits against the plan and the Obama administration when Pruitt was attorney general of Oklahoma.

“The evidence for Pruitt’s inalterably closed mind on CPP rulemaking is overwhelming,” the senators wrote. “It falls into three categories: (1) his deep and wide financial ties to the fossil fuel industry which is ferociously opposed to the CPP; (2) his status as a previous petitioner suing the EPA to block the CPP; and (3) his numerous statements denouncing the CPP, questioning the ability to regulate carbon emissions under the [Clean Air Act] as the CPP proposes to do, and casting doubt on climate science.”

The four argued that the law makes clear that when an administrator is proven to have bias he should be recused.

"When clear and convincing evidence exists that a regulator possesses an inalterably closed mind about a subject covered by a rulemaking, s/he is not permitted to participate in the rulemaking," they wrote. "Pruitt’s extensive involvement in CPP litigation means that he cannot be impartial in CPP rulemaking and therefore must recuse himself."

....
So even if you want talk about rate, what I said was fact and you called my factual statement "total bullshit". When in fact it was correct.

Maybe you could discuss less childishly.
