We Are Just Recovering From the LIA

(Part of the How to Talk to a Climate Sceptic guide)

Objection:
The current warming is just a recovery from the Little Ice Age.

[UPDATE: Please see this guide entry.]

Answer:
This entry is on my ToDo list but for now I would just point to a post by Andrew Dressler that covers it nicely. In a nutshell this argument assumes some kind of natural level that the climate system automatically gravitates back to. Like almost all of the sceptic arguments, this one is inconsistent with many others, especially those trying to say nothing new here, the climate is always changing or the climate is chaotic.
