Interpretation of ice core records

I am trying to establish an overview of what the ice cores from around the world are believed to be telling us about the past climate. My question is how should I intepret ice core records? And . . . should I extrapolate the concept of temperature preceding carbon dioxide phenomena to today's carbon dioxide buildup. That is, will today's carbon dioxide buildup contribute to global warming or is nature running the show and carbon dioxide has little or nothing to do with global warming?
