Ok - so is the coming Global Warming mostly media then now too? Just curious. Cause I've heard scientists on both sides of this one (and in my opinion well paid by one political party or the other in both cases).

Here's a quick and dirty analogy: You live in a house with central heating and air conditioning. The thermostat keeps the house at a constant temperature by regularly cycling through warming and cooling phases. One is the natural response to the other. Our natural heating and cooling phases are happening on a planetary scale, so it takes thousands of years to move through the phases to keep the thermostat regulated.
Make more sense?
