"Evidence-driven" my azss! If you REALLY were, Doug, you would know that the temperature data is manipulated by adjusting old temperatures from several decades ago DOWN and brazenly, recent temperatures UP ... despite the increasing effect of urbanization! Did you read the fraud so clearly documented in the climate fanatics emails amongst themselves? You have to ignore a lot, including your own ability to read a thermometer to make your claims. I suspect your "republicanism" is pretty shaky, too.
