Any true scientific proof that CO2 might be causing climate change would have to first prove that it is even possible that such a cause effect relationship might exist. To prove that a cause effect relationship might exist, it is necessary to show that a statistically significant correlation exist between CO2 concentration and temperature, and this alone does not establish that a cause effect relationship actually exists nor if it does which is the cause and which is the effect. It is only a necessary but not sufficient condition to establish that such a relationship might exist. I have been able to find any evidence that anyone has shown that such a correlation actually exists.

Oops, That should be, I have NOT been able to find any evidence that anyone has shown that such a correlation actually exists.

Again, I disagree with the influence that politics currently has on Science. But there is a clear measurement that CO2 levels are rising and that the type of CO2 in the atmosphere comes from burning fossil fuels. So, there is a strong correlation that has been clearly shown many times. The questions are, 1. will the CO2 cause a liner rise or a logrythmic rise in temps? 2. How quickly will this happen? 3. What will be the result of the rise? 4. what is the best way to approach rising CO2 levels?

To the 4th question, Nuclear Power is the very best answer - it allows energy abundance with the smallest possible environmental impact.

In October one of the main culprits in the global warming hoax published new data that undermines their own theory of global warming. The UK’s MET Office, more formally called the UK's National Weather Service, updated global temperatures for 2012 and the new dataset shows that an “unlikely” event has occurred, according to their own models: Global warming has been halted for 15 years and counting.

While the MET Office accused critics of cherry-picking a starting point and nitpicked about language-for example the Daily Mail reported that the “Met Office report [was] quietly released,” while the Met office whined they just...
