What do you think about the temperature date for the last 400,000 years from the Vostok ice core samples ?

Yes, I'm aware of that. It clearly shows that temperature fluctuation is a natural phenomenon. Therefore, one could come to the conclusion that a warming trend is natural and humans do not contribute by emiting CO2 in the atmosphere.
What is interesting is that this data corresponds with data showing percentage of CO2 in the air. So we know that fluctuations in temperature and CO2 are natural and real. What is most troubling is that CO2 is at a 100,000 year high.
Nature has adjusted to these fluctuations by using CO2 sinks (oceans for one). What will happen in the future when Nature can no longer cope with an excess of CO2?
