NO. Not any more than we can stop the tides or stop volcanoes from erupting...which, BTW, have puked more crap into the atmosphere since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution than industry has.

Certainly not by bankrupting western economies thru asinine EPA regs and wealth redistribution. As you mentioned...it's "cyclical"...and has been since the day the Earth was formed. So, by definition the Earth will at some point swing back the other way on its own.

Since CO2 is the gigantic elephant in THAT room, I'm going to make a wild prediction that, were there a way to 'poll' trees, grass, food crops, and all other 'plants' on the planet, they would unanimously disagree with that statement. In fact, there isn't an HONEST scientist on the planet today who would agree with it.

"The effort" as you seem to be defining it? Fighting it...at least the radical, AL Gore-led, money centric portion of it. However, I'm all for common sense environmental practices of all types. (IOW, those that won't eventually demand we all live in caves...in the tropics...because the EPA says we can't burn fossil fuels for heat. )

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

I suspect Hawking has now officially gone completely off the deep end. Seriously. Either that or he's been paid a TON by Soros or others on the faaar left for authoring this anti-Trump/pro-climate change agenda-pushing claptrap. Perhaps both...:

Stephen Hawking Says Trump'''s Withdrawal From the Paris Accord Could '''Push the Earth Over the Brink'''


This alone should confirm my suspicion:

"Hawking, 75, was also pessimistic about the survival of the human race on Earth. “I fear evolution has inbuilt greed and aggression to the human genome. There is no sign of conflict lessening, and the development of militarized technology and weapons of mass destruction could make that disastrous,” he said. “The best hope for the survival of the human race might be independent colonies in space.”"

Again?

This is only, what, the ump-'TILLionth' time (give or take a dozen) that goings-on similar to this (committed by other 'environmental' researchers/scientists) has come to light?

But, by golly, that doesn't alter one bit the fact that scientific data has shown man is thee fly in the global warming/climate change ointment...and only fines, penalties and massive income redistribution will "fix" that...maybe...perhaps...at some point 100 years or more down the road...if nobody 'cheats'.......................................and...oh...uh...wait a 'sec'...

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

Just another instance of climate tampering to get the results the redistributionists want.

"The Bureau* of Meteorology (BoM) initially claimed the adjustments were part of its quality control procedures. But bureau chief executive Andrew Johnson later told Environment Minister Josh* Frydenberg that investigations had found a number of cold-weather stations were not “fit for purpose” and would be replaced."

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

FWIW, Hawking is no anthropologist and doesn't know shit about evolution. Brilliant man to be sure, but talking well beyond his expertise as a physicist. Man has always been aggressive, self-centered, and greedy. How the hell do you think we survived the other beasts on the Savannah? Show me a period in the history of Man where aggression was not a major influence.

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

To be quite honest, I don't think anyone could disagree with this bit:

I fear evolution has inbuilt greed and aggression to the human genome. There is no sign of conflict lessening, and the development of militarized technology and weapons of mass destruction could make that disastrous,

Re: More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

The most hilarious thing of all, is Mankind's arrogant belief that we have a right to exist for ever and that we possess the ability to bend the Universe to our will and sole benefit. All this, whilst not even knowing for sure how we came to exist in the first place.
