the underlying problem, which is the greenhouse gases that are causing climate change
Paleoclimatologists have learned California suffered a long dry spell from 1,800 to 600 years ago.
Malevich, Woodhouse & Meko 2013 in Journal of Hydrology, showed that by using climate reconstructed from tree rings, the authors indicate severe 60 year droughts are possible in northern California and southern Oregon, which puts our current "worst in recorded history" droughts into context when considering the past 10,000 years of proxy records.
So, here's the question. Yes, there have been periods in the earth's history that have been warmer, and some that have been colder. That is a fact, but it is a very simple statement that ignores a lot of other facts.
It looks from this very limited and incomplete statement of yours, that you would like people to believe that there is one and only one cause of temperature variation for our earth, i.e. only natural cause, and that nothing else can possibly be a factor in the change of the climate of the earth, such as man made cause.
Do you believe that there:
A- is one and only one cause of temperature variation for planet earth, and whenever the climate changes significantly it must be due to that one cause, or
B- do you believe it is possible that across the millennia there has been more than one cause of temperature variation,
by the way folks, this topic is open to all.
