This is known as the faint young sun paradox and is usually explained by invoking much larger greenhouse gas concentrations in Earth's early history, though such proposals are poorly constrained by existing experimental evidence. Before 1850 the temperature is an estimate based on the sources given. I'm starting to convert to the new, lower-energy, lower-emission lightbulbs. It is disgusted by the new changes and proclaims: Just below the previous entry also at 1200 BCE is the mentioning of the invasion of the. These classic myths were written more than 300 years after their supposed events. Now an atmospheric history lesson - Cambrian Oxygen 12.5% - Carbon Dioxide 0.45% - Average Temp. is 35% higher than when Industrial Revolution began, is higher than any period in last 420,000 years, is primary cause of temperature increase (not the other way around), may rise by 2-6°C ... 4-11°F in the 21st Century, in the last 10,000 years (Holocene Epoch) when we developed the foods that support us and the fruits of our civilization, since the middle Pliocene Epoch three million years ago when sea level may have been 25 meters or 80 feet higher than today. They feature in many xkcd comics, such as, [To the right of the dotted curve is an arrow pointing down and slightly left. The earlier Sturtian glacial maxima (~730 million years) may also have been a snowball Earth event though this is unproven. 17 °C - sea level 0 meters The colder years are referred to as periods of glaciation and the warmer years as periods of interglaciation. Or the file got renamed without updating the sites? Here is table including all elements in the chart with explanations including reading off temperature and year for each event from the curve. --JayRulesXKCD (talk) 11:56, 13 September 2016 (UTC), Maybe someone should add the fact that the transcript may be a reference to oxidation?Transuranium (talk) 19:21, 13 September 2016 (UTC)Transuranium, Is nobody else having a problem seeing the comic?

This is not a fast warm up, especially not compared to the one we are currently experiencing (at the bottom of the chart). At some point, there must be an irreversible tipping into the world of 3 million years ago. 21 °C - sea level 30 - 90 meters Not convinced?
