World headed for warmest period on record

Experts have confirmed that last year was one of the warmest ever recorded. The US government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said 2018’s average global temperature was 58.42 degrees Fahrenheit, or 14.69 Celsius. That’s 1.42 degrees (0.79 Celsius) warmer than the 20th century average. The UK’s Met Office has predicted that the next five years will be even hotter than 2018.

Honest question as a environmental science major. What is the earths optimal average temperature and as the trends show before fossil fuel use it is higher why is it bad that we accelerate it? I have sat in many lectures and read many research papers and never have I found either of those answers.

Fake news. Our recorded data only extends to the late 18th century and most of that incomplete data has been massaged to demonstrate a warming trend. These "scientists" have a vested interest in making these claims. When they start personally living like it's a crisis I'll believe them.
