    We term it climate change to highlight the rate of change that is the result of human activities, as compared with more common shifts in climate over time. It’s informative to look at the record of earth over time to follow the various changes. For example, the great oxygenation event ( was due to biological production of free O2 due to photosynthesis, but took millennia, whereas the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs was a very fast transient event and not due to any biological actions ( Or check out the “snowball earth” ages thought to be due to decreased sunlight at the surface and decreased atmospheric CO2 with consequent effects on life forms ( The effect of humans on climate change is comparable to the asteroid extinction event rate of change.
