When Al Gore says the North Pole will melt
or you see snow on the pyramids of Egypt,
that's weather. The 400,000 year picture is plain that parkas, not bikinis are the near future unless we get lucky with global warming.
There's the last half million years. The little box in the upper right is the last ten thousand years. If you take a hand lens to the chart, you might make out the last hundred years which gave birth to climate alarmism. If you are a betting person, would you be saying colder or hotter is next?

Al Gore who said "the entire north polarized cap will disappear in five years" (2007) or more cautiously in this 2009 video clip, “Some of the models suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap, during some of the summer months, could be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years,” --- was wrong.
I get a warm glow seeing snow on a camel's back and the frosted peaks of the Egyptian pyramids. That's schadenfreude but is still weather, though 112 years have passed since the last snowfall.

The big picture shows a cozy interlude is ending. We are reverting to the mean and the mean is chilly with ice advancing.
