After factoring in the effects of orbital variations, sunspots, volcanoes, and sulfur dioxide aerosols, scientists theorize that recent global warming is not as abrupt - nor as potentially  Read more...

Abstract:

Experts examine global warming by analyzing satellite images, archival weather records, tree rings, core samples from the ocean floor, and air frozen into ancient ice to investigate climatic changes over the past 250,000 years. After factoring in the effects of orbital variations, sunspots, volcanoes, and sulfur dioxide aerosols, scientists theorize that recent global warming is not as abrupt - nor as potentially cataclysmic - as previously believed.
