This is why I read the internet, for the lulz.

Could you imagine if we ended up in an area of space where the vacuum was so cold it was within mere degrees of absolute zero?

I'm guessing the sun would freeze.

Peer review has so many problems that when someone trots it out the way you do I know it's just a religious belief rather than a rational look at the process.  Anyone who had a clue should be aware of it. There's some TED talks on it if you want to learn.

What your argument reminded me of.

 "But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!"

 It has a similar cadence to your thought process.

So I'm reading the paper and they do what all the proxy people do. They do statistics on thicknesses of things and then lay that series on top of a temperature series from the CRU that runs from 1961-1990 and tweak the series until it matches in shape and then assume that the rest of the series now represents temperature for thousands of years. They say their resolution runs from 20-500 years with a mean of 120 years. And surely the temperature spike comes from direct thermometer measurements and didn't come at all from their proxies. I mean, come on, people.

2.

So the temperature increased on all the planets in the solar system in a likewise fashion?  Did the sun also get hotter when we got to this area of space?  We're in danger of Jupiter, and the other gas giants, boiling off!  Oh noes!

For all intents and purposes the cosmic background radiation is entirely uniform in every direction. Seriously, the CMB is  2.72548±0.00057K with the  ±0.00057K accounting for all of the variation you see in those splotchy green and blue maps.

I've long since learned that bothering to construct a coherent and intelligent argument to refute your trolling is a waste of time. You simply ignore all data that disagrees with you (so on this subject: all data period) and continue to troll.

you fail at basic thermodynamics. try looking up the matter and energy densities of the interstellar medium, then calculate the amount of energy needed to raise the global mean temperature by even quarter of a degree Celsius and learn why your suggestion that it is the interstellar medium warming us is pants-on-head-retarded.
