    So you're saying it's entirely a coincidence that the planet started heating up only once mankind started pumping vast amounts of carbon dioxide and pollutants into the air?

    Climate Change: Key Indicators

    Even seeing the average temperature fluctuation, we're practically off the charts at this point. Your larger model doesn't show that.

    It was 12 degrees warmer in the carboniferous period. Were the dinosaurs building too many factories?

    No, they were building too many volcanoes. Earth once had a truly massive amount of CO2 in its atmosphere due to massive volcanic eruptions in its infancy. Once Earth's geology became more stable and plant life emerged, CO2 levels exhibited a general downward trend until the present day. Of course, that CO2 didn't just disappear. Much of it is buried within hydrocarbons and in vast quantities of permafrost in Siberia and Antarctica.

    Articles like that are alarmist. They make one think that all the permafrost will suddenly melt, releasing all that bad stuff.

    I suggest you do the math sometime on just how much energy it takes to melt that much mass of permafrost.

    Those ten years also continued an extended period of accelerating global warming, with more national temperature records reported broken than in any previous decade. Sea levels rose about twice as fast as the trend in the last century.

    Further evidence, if any more were needed, that climate change is a reality. Sure, the climate change deniers, like all conspiracy theorists, will deny any evidence put before them. Hopefully this new evidence will make some people to see the reality.
    I was busy having a life to notice. My bad.

    No. CO2 has a minimal warming effect. The soot generated has a larger effect than the CO2 does. Over land, it probably doesn't have much effect except where it falls on year round snow and ice. In the arctic, it is a very large factor for our retreating ice cap. Now we have less reflected solar energy and more absorbed by water as well.

    Are they?

    Can you tell me with absolute certainty that all these temperature adjustments made over the years to account for urban growth are correct? What about the paint changing arounf these temperature monitoring boxes? Anyone account for mandated paint type changes?

    There is no certainty the temperatures have increased as much as stated. Have you ever seen the documented problems with temperature monitoring sites?

    So?

    More useless articles that do not show the science proving any particular cause. As there is more ocean surrounding a surface to stabilize a temperature, there will be a larger change. Just because the sea ice is retreating more, and the ocean in influence the temperature more, doesn't mean greenhouse gasses are causing such a retreat.

    Do you have a clue as to how much energy it takes to melt that much ice? It is soot on ice, melting that much ice. A very small dusting of soot on ice allows it to capture over 50% to 90% of the sun's rays rather than reflecting 85% to 90% of them. That's very large increase that greenhouse gasses cannot match.

    Again, go to any beach and note that the year round temperatures don't fluctuate like they do on the other side of a coastal mountain range. The increased sea volume has an increased effect on atmospheric temperatures.

    Please stop with the propaganda... Correlation does not equal causation!

    Oh THreegoofs, we know you are completely scientifically illiterate and trying to mask that weakness with a one person trolltacular, but read a book sometime, please... even if it's just "Trolling for Dummies" because your whole facade is tiresome.

    And what was the result of all this CO2? Bigger and more life not extinction. Much of it was buried and we now call it fossil fuels. Earth is nothing more than a giant carbon recycling machine.
