2015 0.86 400.83

CO2 jumped by 8% between 1998-2013, yet temps only increased from +0.63C, to +0.65C. Between 1959-76, CO2 jumped 5%, while temps fell from +0.4C, to -.12C. Between 1976-90, CO2 levels increased by 6.6% and temps increased from -0.12C, to +0.40C

How you go from that to say that CO2 CAUSES global warming is beyond me. The numbers are all over the map. Sometimes CO2 rises and it gets colder, sometimes it stays the same and other times is get much hotter. The time periods are 15, 17 and 14 years. If you're saying 15 years is too short a time frame to see how CO2 influences temperatures, then how long a period should we use?

If we assume the Global Warming threat came to the public in 1988, we see that it was only 12 years prior that the earth was -0.12C colder than the 1950-80 reference period. In other words, it took only 12 years of warming data to set the Global Warming agenda. If that was long enough then, why not now?
