@Bold Which is why we should all calm down even as CO2 levels are spiking when solar activity is just as big of a factor in determining average temperatures ... (even a change in the Earth's orbit could affect temperatures!) 

The fate of Earth is boiling oceans either way so we have to find a new planet to live on (if our species even survives that long) whether if we continue to use fossil fuels or not ... 

I agree that global warming is a relatively short term problem in the grand scheme of all humanity's history, past and future, but that doesn't mean I'm going to gloss over the possible shorter term humanitarian consequences.
