My quck advice on this is to indeed acknowledge that natural variabilty
does occur, but it still has a cause (whether external forcing or internal
processes), and the things that are different now are rates of change and
the identified human forcings, while the natural forcings can also be
assessed and they are not contributing in any substantive way, or maybe
even slightly negative since 1950.
