What does this tell us (besides putting water in whiskey is bad)? It tells us that the primary cause for the increase in atmospheric CO2 is the combustion of fossil fuels. Pretty simple, actually.





all that info for something we knew already? Feels like Christmas at nans house, massive gift wrapped box just to find a pair of socks at the bottom

Agreed in that fossil fuel combustion is undoubtedly contributing to a rise in atmospheric co2 levels. It's simple chemistry, really. ch4 +2o2=co2+2h2o, etc., etc. As you say, the fact that these hydrocarbons were mined from underground reservoirs would naturally lead one to conclude that some of the by-products of their combustion would end up in the atmosphere. Also, the earth is warming. Miles of bare earth that were once covered by glaciers firmly support this hypothesis.

I have yet to see clear evidence supporting anthropogenic global warming or anthropogenic climate change, however. This statement is not meant to vindicate fossil fuels or anything like that. They are dirty processes that produce plenty of toxic, polluting by-products, no doubt. All the same, I have not yet seen the clear evidence showing causation of agw or acc. There's a wealth of information out there. I could spend a lot of time reading about this subject and perhaps still not get the answer to this question.

My question to the two of you, is what is the clear evidence that shows causation? I know you're both fairly educated people with scientific minds, so please direct me to the right reports or articles. A correlation is not good enough, in my opinion. Correlation does not show causation. I do have an open mind, so if you can show me the info, I'll evaluate it with an open mind. Thanks.
