The Magic Molecule
About 18.950 years ago something natural happened. Snowball Earth started warming. There were a few detours along the way. The Minoian Warm, the rRman Warm, the MWP, The Younger Dryas, etc. Variation on variation. Then about 70 years ago all that stopped and whatever natural process(es) were causing the steady general warming stopped and handed over the job to a magic molecule; CO2.
Sounds silly when you hear it that way but that's what the current consensus claims.
