It's not possible to look at the data and come to any honest conclusion other than what scientists have come up with.
BTW, Watch 130 years of global warming in 30 seconds here: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/01/3 ... 30-seconds
Rapid (and drastic)changes must be made NOW. Or you may as well forget any future for human civilization.
Warming periods have shown the Rise of Rome, the rise of Europe, and the Rise of china.
the cooling periods show the Death of rome, the death of the Maya, many more storms of higher intensity, famines, floods, etc etc. i suggest you read up on the little ice age.
