    No, the current warming is NOT an orbital quirk. How do we know? Because we know the orbit. And we know the quirks over time (as explained in the article).

    But, yes, the Earth has been much warmer in the past. And it survived. But, when it was warmer, the coastlines were much further inland than they are now. So all those cities on the coast are in trouble if it gets too hot.

    The problem is ultimately not the survival of the Earth, but the economic impact of more forceful storms, flooding, changes in growing seasons, etc.

    "Economic" is one of those understatements
    we sometimes hear of.
