Gee, if summers wouldn't also be so hot and prone to drought, you MIGHT even have something there.

And of course the warming from the additional CO2 causes more permafrost to be melted thus heating the atmosphere more and more.
Which would of happened if man existed or not. After all, the earth has been warming since the end of the last ice age.

Hmmm, So you don't believe that burning mega tons of fossil fuels does not add CO2 to the atmosphere. Poor thing.

You are incorrect. The optimum of the current interglacial was approximately 5000 to 9000 years ago. We have been on a COOLING trend since then, as others have also shown you.

If humans hadn't started pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in the 1800s, the Little Ice Age might still be with us today. We may have arrested the slow slide into another ice age, but we've overshot & have emitted WAY too much carbon into the atmosphere.

BTW, it's "...would HAVE happened..." or "...would'VE happened..." - not "...would OF..."
