    Why can’t it just be like Viking times? Looks like the graph provides a nice ecocentric view of the climate, exaggerating any changes that occurred around "Now", maybe this is another "medieval warm" and the sun still revolves around the earth.

    It can’t be ‘like Viking times’ because it’s different now. The Vikings didn’t take fossil fuels buried all over the planet over millennia and burn half of it in a couple of centuries, and plan to burn the remaining half in another thirty-odd years. The Vikings didn’t destroy entire forests.

    Like it or not, we’re heading waaay out of the blue zone shown in the graph. Just how far out depends upon choices we make now – and those choices mean changes to our lifestyles. If we don’t make those changes, well, we deserve what we get for our shortsightedness.
