Climate Myth What the Science Says
"CO2 after the turn of the century continued to increase. In fact, if anything slightly faster. Global temperature didn't. If anything, it decreased in the first decade of the 21st century."
2 August 2011 (Source)

There is long-term correlation between CO2 and global temperature; other effects are short-term.

"Anyone who thinks the science of this complex system is settled is in fantasia."
2 August 2011 (Source)

That human CO2 is causing global warming is known with high certainty & confirmed by observations.

"Future atmospheric CO2 is only marginably predicable and in significant part, not controllable. That means the changes in human emissions will not be tracked by changes in atmospheric CO2. They never have been."
2 August 2011 (Source)

Many lines of evidence, including simple accounting, demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that the increase in atmospheric CO2 is due to human fossil fuel burning.

"The popularised view has been that CO2 is driving the bus and climate is along for the ride. The observed behaviour reveals just the reverse. Climate is at the wheel and to a significant degree, CO2 is at the back of the bus."
2 August 2011 (Source)

Multiple lines of evidence make it very clear that the rise in atmospheric CO2 is due to human emissions.
