Climate change is part of a natural cycle

Historical documents suggest there was a Medieval Warm Period followed by Little Ice Age. Some believe that we are coming out of an ice age and reentering a natural warm period.

The Argument

Climate change is natural and inevitable. It has been recorded before, and some evidence shows that we may be entering a natural warm period, explaining global warming.

Counter arguments

While the climate does naturally change, the past few decades have shown a disproportionate acceleration in this change, and evidence has shown that this acceleration is due to human activity.
