Again where is that obvious CO2 climate driving influence?

It would appear to me that we have been in the past where we are now several times. Some of us older bloggers even remember some of the more recent times going back to the 1930’s and 1940’s. It would appear to me that the climate scientists of the current generation think they have discovered something new by only seeing warming ahead.
1878 PEAK OF WARM CYCLE [VERY WARM] strongest El Nino ever
1911 TROUGH OF COLD CYCLE [VERY COLD] cold of the 1910-1917
1944 PEAK OF WARM CYCLE [VERY WARM] drought of the 1030’s and dust bowl
1977 TROUGH OF COLD CYCLE [VERY COLD] extreme winters of the late 1970’s
2010 PEAK OF WARM CYCLE [VERY WARM] recent decade of warm weather
2043 TROUGH OF NEXT CYCLE [COLD]
2076 PEAK OF NEXT CYCLE [WARM]
In between these cycle there is a predictable and similar rise and fall of temperatures over approximately a 60-66 year full cycle. Even the rate of decline and fall of the different cycles are amazingly similar from cycle to cycle. We have peaked for the current cycle and are now heading down for approximately next 33 years toward the next trough in about 2043. There may be warm years in between as in the past but the general trend is cooler for the next part of the cycle. The next global warming peak may be 66 years away. So let’s ride the wave and not try to out guess every moment.
It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.
–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
