This is how the AGW narrative goes. From 1880-1945, the Sun was warming the planet like crazy. Then in 1945, humans suddenly started dumping lots of junk into the atmosphere, causing rapid global cooling. In the 1970s, Congress passed the Clean Air Act and CO2 simultaneously kicked in with a vengeance, causing warming as great as the earlier period. Then around the turn of the millennium, natural variability kicked in and the planet stopped warming. All hell will break lose in a few years and the polar ice caps will melt down and flood the planet.
I really don’t know how these people can look at themselves in the mirror in the morning.
