The Keywords (Part 1 of 3)

In the first of three articles for Climate Change Depot (Link in title) starts off by saying:
In the not too distant future, it will likely be difficult to understand how so many educated people believed in and accepted uncritically for so long a scientifically unproven theory like the so-called Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW). Taken almost as a dogma, the AGW has been forcefully imposed by means of a barrage of scare stories and indoctrination that begins in the elementary school textbooks and is volleyed relentlessly upon us by the media and many scientific institutions (including some pseudo-scientific ones), while gullible or opportunistic politicians devise all possible means of inserting climate-motivated items into their power-seeking schemes.
And then continues talking about the "environmentalist propaganda machine."
Some of the points he makes:
• in the historical and geological time scales there has never been and there will never be such a thing as a “static” climate (so, climate change is sort of a pleonasm)
• During the interglacials the average temperatures reached 4-6ºC and the sea levels 3-6 m above the current ones. Our own interglacial the Holocene, which started 11,500-11,700 years ago, had average temperatures up to 4ºC and sea levels up to 3 m above the current ones between 5,000-6,000 years ago (Middle Holocene).
