The Long View
Here is climate science's view of average planet temperature and CO2 content over the past 600 million years, that is, once life on the planet was well established. It was usually a lot hotter than it is in the beginning of the Quaternary (we're in the coldest period for the last 260 million years) and, then as now, there appears to be absolutely no correlation between atmospheric CO2 and temperature.
But I could be reading it wrong.
