“Tripati et al. (2009) had a goal ``to test the hypothesis that CO2 and climate were closely coupled across ... major transitions''. ... from a relatively ice-free world to one with glacial conditions on Antarctica characterized by substantial ice sheets. They concluded: “These results show that changes in pCO2 and climate have been coupled during major glacial transitions of the past 20myr,… supporting the hypothesis that greenhouse gas forcing was an important modulator of climate over this interval via direct and indirect effects” (Rapp, Assessing Climate Change, 32).
