27. The rate of warming *from a warm period* is unprecedented

There are known mechanisms for why cold periods end, related to the earth's orbit and orientation. But we're already in a warm period; the mechanism that causes ice ages cannot account for what is happening now. Humans are making the planet warmer.

Your 'point' is irrelevant and uninformed. Our heat comes from the sun; but the change we are seeing now is because humans have changed the properties of earth's atmosphere, so that more of it is retained. This is simply the conclusion of climate science, from all over the world. The relative size of the sun and earth is irrelevant. Humans have increased the carbon dioxide in earth's atmosphere by 40%.
