Global warming in the past 50 years has raised global temperature (Fig. 1) well above the prior range in the Holocene (the current interglacial period, approximately the past 11,700 years) to the level of the Eemian period (130,000 to 115,000 years ago), when sea level was 6-9 meters (20-30 feet) higher than today.

If I've read this correctly, according to James Hansen (who at least once received free legal assistance from George Soros, just another fun fact with nothing to see here..), temperatures today are at the same level as they were 115K to 130K years ago but, 115k to 130k years ago the temperature and bad weather control know (CO2) was much lower than today, it was around 270 to 280ish. See graph below;
1) Am I misunderstanding what was stated in the excerpt above? If yes, then what does it say?
2) Could it be a typo?
3) If it is correct, then how could the temperatures back then when the temperature/bad-weather control know was dialed down to way down to 280 ppm-ish be the same as today?

Another fun fact: In the Antarctic ice core data of temperature and CO2, the changing level of CO2 follows the change in temperature. In other words, the temp changes first and then the CO2 changes. Al Gore's inconvenient truth and a host of MSM sources and even NASA have lied or deliberately mislead about this fact. That said, it may be that some day, that they'll find out that the CO2 changed first and then temp follows (which is what they are looking for so they have a pre-conceived bias that it exists which it may). But that didn't stop them from lying or misleading us...
