    Are you deliberately missing the point?

    The point is that naturally occurring global warming events are beneficial enough to melt ice caps, as has been shown in the historical record.

    Today's warming trend has not melted the ice caps, ergo, today's trend is not as severe as those found in the past.

    Can I ask you why you call yourself a Conservative? Is it a joke or something?

    has this been disproved?

    What are those sources of warming and are they active today?
    Neither were global events, and we have not have frequent volcanic activity in this warming period to account for the warming. Unless you have proof beyond the scientist's data.

    "While temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere were warmer than average during the summers the tropics and areas of the Southern Hemisphere were colder than average which comprised an average global temperature still overall lower than present day temperatures."

    I already posted a link to the scientist's conclusion there is no evidence the Medieval warm period was a global event and attributed it to frequent volcanic eruptions.

    Oh, Rule Number Two: When confronted with facts that you can't refute, pretend they're not true.

    Are you seriously trying to claim the planet's highest year ever was 1998?

    As has been shown, what you referenced were regional events caused by natural sources that peaked tens of thousands of years ago. What is happening today is a global event caused by man that has not peaked and will not peak as long as we continue our overloading the atmosphere with C02.

    If it were just a single year record it would not be significant. This is what makes this global warming period significant:
