If you look at the only continuous temperature record from the 1600's you will see we are in a slight warming period that has lasted centuries.
We are currently in an interglacial period and if you look at the previous ones then you will see a warming period just like that just before a drop into an ice age.
Every time, interglacial stability for a while, then rapid warming, then ice age.
The CO2 record shows a rise just before the warming each time also.
This sounds like the situation we find ourselves in but hey, what do I know.
