"Meaningless" is a strong word. The original paper was clear on the time resolution of the data. As I noted previously, for your theory of rapid variations in atmospheric CO2 to be plausible, you would have to propose a mechanism for rapid change in that parameter. The fact that temperature changes rapidly is meaningless as an analogy beyond showing the mathematics of a moving average.
The "Gases in Ice Cores" paper cited earlier discusses other sample sets with much better time resolution (30 years in one case) going back to the 1300s with CO2 variation of +/- 5 ppm. Apparently they get much better resolution from cores where the ice accumulates quicker, but they can't go back as far in time.
