WASHINGTON - Senate Republicans on Friday blocked a global warming bill that would have required major reductions in greenhouse gases, pushing debate over the world's biggest environmental concern to next year for a new Congress and president.
Democratic leaders fell a dozen votes short of getting the 60 needed to end a Republican filibuster on the measure and bring the bill up for a vote, prompting Majority Leader Harry Reid to pull the legislation from consideration.

so you must think that the ice core samplings showing a 300% increase in carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere in the last 70 years compared to the last 100,00 years (and yes this is now common knowledge), has been faked, and we should do nothing about it.

Since you provided no proof of your claim I will take this as a hypothetical. If it were true, what makes you think it's man made and not a natural Earth cycle due to the sun? Answer: You don't! Since the sun can cause such changes there is nothing man can do to stop it.
