This is a graph of the atmospheric concentration of CO2 over the last 10.000 years.

And this is a graphic showing the temperature change in certain regions, where the blue shaded bands in the small graphs show results of simulations of climate models with only non-human influence, and the red shaded bands show results of models with human influence (e.g. burning of fossil fuels). The black lines are real measurements.
