For the record

I've posted the following assertions on Facebook, and they've actually been challenged.

OK..just for the record:
Human History goes back 5,500 years.
Civilization goes back about 6,000 years.
The current interglacial period (or global warming) began somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago.
So throughout all of human history, all of human civilization, global warming has been occurring.
Modern humans first appeared about 200,000 years ago.
The current ice age (that we are in an interglacial period of) began two and a half million years ago.
So all of human existence has occurred in an ice age.
Which 5,000 year period...hell what fifty year period of human existence would you prefer to live in?
Life has gotten infinitely better for humanity the warmer the earth has gotten.
I will spend a couple of posts providing my argument for each of my assertions.
