Hi all,


I thought I would post this graph of global temperature change over the
Holocene epoch. It has popped up a lot lately in my wanderings.




Whether you like Wikipedia or not, it is the go-to source of information for
lots of people and is often the first result for Google searches.  This is
the scientific information that the non-scientific public reads and often
not a bad start for the scientists too.  


Climate scientists, is this the information that we the public should be
looking at and making our decisions?    Look especially at the “average”
heavy black line.
