If increased CO2 causes temperatures to rise, then this should not be true. But it is true and the reason why its true is because CO2 is an effect of temperature change, CO2 is not a cause. In the graph you can plainly see that CO2 lags temperature change. These "scientists" have violated the most basic scientific rule, cause and effect. And if the topic were not so politicized, more scientists would step forward and decry this sham.
It has the densest atmosphere of the four terrestrial planets, consisting of more than 96% carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth's. With a mean surface temperature of 735 K (462 °C; 863 °F), Venus is by far the hottest planet in the Solar System. It has no carbon cycle to lock carbon back into rocks and surface features, nor does it seem to have any organic life to absorb it in biomass. Venus is shrouded by an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of sulfuric acid, preventing its surface from being seen from space in visible light. Venus may have possessed oceans in the past, but these would have vaporized as the temperature rose due to a runaway greenhouse effect
