3. look at the horizontal scale
That dip on the right side looks to be the last ice age. The scale is such that temperature changes over the past five hundred years -- which is what we're talking about when we discuss global warming -- are imperceptible.

If 100 million years is an inch, then 500 years is five millionths of an inch.
