This work reviews proxy records and modeling studies for the most recent greenhouse climate state and presents a broad overview of our evolving perspectives, including the primary agents forcing global climate and the feedbacks responsible for the observed temperature distributions. In this review, greenhouse climates are considered to be intervals too warm to sustain substantial continental glaciation.
