The A., a physical geographer, addresses climate change and feedbacks for Eurasia over longer (tectonic forcing, intermediate (Earth's orbital relations) and shorter timeframes, emphasizing that climates change more or less continuously in response to many forcing factors (solar output, Earth's eccentric orbit, rotational tilt, precession, and interactive atmosphere-ocean-land systems, including human impacts). The nesting of the current, three-decade pattern of warming within longer centennial- and millennial-scale cycles of warming and cooling since the Holocene Optimum, shows that the recent rapid warming since 1980 is not unique in Earth history, although it does warrant concern and raises questions of global significance
