    I wouldn't go that far. There is no way possible for humans not to have any effect on climate over all these years.

    It looks like the GHG forcing bar is actually just CO2 levels
    No, the IPCC chart is showing 2.29 Wm-2 for all forcing s.

    That is what many people have strangely come to believe. The Greeks had their beliefs in weather control by intelligent beings. One such attempt ended in scorched earth disaster when Zeus struck Phaethon down while stupidly flying a chariot into the sun. Hail archers shot arrows into the sky trying to produce rain in Medieval times. American Indians did rain dances even while American farmers were improving irrigation techniques. Castro even accused the US of manipulating the weather for military purposes and the UN intervened by passing a resolution banning such manipulation.

    Curiously, humans are gaining more knowledge while remaining remarkably stupid in some ways the whole time.
