What are you, the Highlander
Human activity has brought atmospheric CO2 levels to a place that has not been attainable by the ecosystems which have existed for the past half-million years.
Just another hodge-podge of unrelated data to prove droughts

you correct it is the braudent plateau ever but take a look at it it is at delta 0 so what i get from this is that the earth is starting to stabalise
so your telling me if you measured CO2 right next to a factory and in the middle of a jungle that the difrence you can just ignore?
sorry if i made it sound shrude ...but look at the graph it mixes data from difrent sorces... you just cant do that im sorry
i like wiki but not for data alot are good but you have learned in english that you can mix the actualy facts to make it to your cause ( ex www.dhmo.org DHMO is water...100% of ppl who ingest it die OMG)
i have given you data sheets from the NOAA about CO2 and tempature change ...those are as good of sorces as your gona find.
the big black line is the avrage of the individual sorces now look at the 4(meanign4thousand years ago) it is warmer then ..last i checked humans where around then and if you look its just getting to where it was right after the last glacural period.

dinosars died out 100 million years ago and then 75 or so million years ago humans arived on the scene and when humans came about (by god or evalution) there was more than twice the CO2 levial so we can safeley say that humans can most defiantly take twice the CO2.
Primates were one of the early branches of the mammalian adaptive radiation that developed after the Jurassic.
i dont get the chicago refrence
recently it had becoming less predictable ther has been more fluctuations.
Living plants growing at their normal temperatures generated even larger quantities of methane, as much as 370 ng per gram of plant tissue per hour. Methane emission more than tripled when the plants, either living or dead, were exposed to sunlight.

I'd just like to see less hysteria and more solid understanding, before we enforce some kind of draconian energy reduction regime,
Example: C02 blocks a spectral line, clouds block much much more, don't you think that people should worry less about single factors?
PS: methane doesn't smell at all, it's an additive designed to warn people of hazardous gas leaks.

CO2 and Methane are not poisonous (though the later smells really bad)
Methane is an odorless, colorless flammable gas. It is used primarily as fuel to make heat and light. It is also used to manufacture organic chemicals. Methane can be formed by the decay of natural materials and is common in landfills, marshes, septic systems and sewers.

In repsonse to the thread title, Global Warming may or may not be our own fault, although I suspect it is, but it most definitely is our problem. Unless you believe that it is not a problem at all, who is going to fix it if we dont?
