No, I’m telling you that you are incorrect in assuming that when the industrial revolution took place, we were emitting modern levels of CO2.

Please, look at the citation again (it’s actually quite firmly on the alarmist side):

Pay attention to this graph:

Global CO2 emissions 1850–2011

If you have a NASA graph that you’d like me to look at, please give a URL link. I’m not sure if it will help your argument if it’s in 1980 — that’s within the period of time between 1950–2016 where I claim the vast majority of CO2 emissions happened from humans, with no significantly different temperature rise as compared to 1850–1950.

Here are two 65 year periods, with similar gradual rates of temperature increase:

Whatever human influence you might assert, it’s minimal.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
