Earth is warming, but should be cooling?!

Article by Hazell Ransome.

Until recently, the Earth was in a natural cooling phase, which started around 5 thousand years ago [1]. This cooling was heading towards a new ice age, due in about 1.5 thousand years [2]. However, after around 1850 [3], global temperatures started to rise dramatically [4,5].

For the past 250 years, humans have been releasing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere [6], causing the Earth to warm by roughly 1.1°C [7] when it should be cooling [1]!
