    Where's it's bread buttered?

    Selling spacecraft to monitor "global warming".
    Providing data consistent with what the politicians cutting NASA's budget want to see.

    And, amazingly enough, the warming cycles aren't affected when compared to other historical interstadial periods.

    Or do you just want to ignore the established fact that the Eemian period sea levels were some fifteen feet higher than today?

    When nearly half the scientists disagree with what you call the "consensus" opinion, where's the consensus?

    What do you think the chances are of boosting global CO2 concentrations to 10,000 ppm?

    No I prefer the scientific explanation:

    "Today’s global warming is unique among the Earth’s warm periods. The rise in average world-wide temperature (0.7°C over the past 100 years) is much faster-paced than the warming after an ice age (4 – 7°C over 5000 years).90 And the rise of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere (80 parts per million (ppm) — up 27% — over the past 100 years) is much, much faster-paced than the rise of CO2 after an ice age (about 80 ppm in 5000 years). Since CO2 is the main greenhouse gas, and since there has not been much rise in solar radiation over the past 100 years, we are left with the greenhouse effect as the only explanation for today’s warming."

    The scientific explanation is that current climate behavior is consistent with past climate behavior and not indicative of any anthropogenic influences.

    You are comparing oranges to apples. A contaminate level for oxygen among humans versus a contaminant level for the atmosphere.

    Why would you think they would be the same?

    There is no scientific basis for your opinion, but thanks just the same!

    The difference is in the scientific standards required by the major Scientific Societies.

    All of them concur with ACC, and none concur with your position.

    But hey, don't let that stop you!

    No, I'm not. Some people, notably the one I quoted, thinks the toxicity of CO2 is an issue.

    I was merely pointing out that CO2 isn't a pollutant, as the Gaia Worshippers are wont to claim.
