5. yes - one pixel is about 1 million years
The gif is 660 pixels wide, so approx. 1M years per pixel.
We're 10,000 years into an interglacial period, 1/100 pixel wide.
I wasn't really discussing global warming,
I was curious about the flatness of the graph, a nearly constant 22C.
Apparently that isn't correct.
I found some related graphs here:
