Yes, and I suspect most if not all of those who signed the aforementioned letter would agree. Where there should not be a consensus is in claiming that this gradual warming trend will cause a cascade disaster making much or most of the Earth unlivable in the near future.
In fact, there is growing evidence of warming and cooling trends of similar magnitude in, geologically speaking, the relatively recent past. There is no evidence that any such cascade disaster has occurred due to temperature swings of similar magnitude. In fact, I don't think it's overstating the case to say the historical and archaeological record proves that such mild temperature swings don't cause any cascade effect.

And I expect you will continue to post sneeringly condescending posts suggesting that even the most intelligent people on this forum are incapable of grasping your arguments.
We are the 99%. A better world is possible.
