The planet is warming, but I don't know if this is due to CO2.
It is not, during warm cycles water vapor levels increase naturally, and it is water vapor that is the main ghg.
BTW, some other members and I have pointed out the fact that the entire Solar System is changing. Most planets with an atmosphere have been warming
at the same time Earth was warming. Even Pluto was warming, even as it was moving away from the Sun.
I pointed out a recent research in which scientists are saying 'SOMETHING ELSE BESIDES THE SUN is heating the atmosphere". Part of this is due to
the fact that the Sun's activity, which includes it's magnetic field is weaker now than it has been for at least 100 years. This is allowing more
interstellar dust, as well as more high charged particles are entering the Solar System.
Surprise In Earth's Upper Atmosphere: Mode Of Energy Transfer From The Solar Wind
"Its like something else is heating the atmosphere besides the sun. This discovery is like finding it got hotter when the sun went
down," said Larry Lyons, UCLA professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences and a co-author of the research, which is in press in two
companion papers in the Journal of Geophysical Research.
I posted the above at the following link.
Since the Earth's magnetic field has also been weakening since 1840, and it is now weaker, and fluctuating more than it has for tens of thousands of
years, this is allowing more charged particles to enter Earth's atmosphere also, and it is changing the dynamic of the Earth, including it's
Scientists have known since at least 1978 that dramatic Climate Change was coming, and they said this was going to happen because there was a new
region of space which the Solar System was entering, and in this new region of space there was, among other things, more interstellar dust.
The following link is an article i started in 2006, there was another i started earlier but can't find it.
These are a couple of articles I posted on the above link.
Is the solar system entering a nearby interstellar cloud

Observational arguments in favor of such a cloud are presented, and implications of the presence of a nearby cloud are discussed, including
possible changes in terrestrial climate. It is suggested that the postulated interstellar cloud should encounter the solar system at some
unspecified time in the near future and might have a drastic influence on terrestrial climate in the next 10,000 years.
ESA sees stardust storms heading for Solar System
Date Released: Monday, August 18, 2003
Source: Artemis Society
Until ten years ago, most astronomers did not believe stardust could enter our Solar System. Then ESA's Ulysses spaceprobe discovered minute
stardust particles leaking through the Sun's magnetic shield, into the realm of Earth and the other planets. Now, the same spaceprobe has shown that
a flood of dusty particles is heading our way.
What is surprising in this new Ulysses discovery is that the amount of stardust has continued to increase even after the solar activity calmed down
and the magnetic field resumed its ordered shape in 2001.
Scientists believe that this is due to the way in which the polarity changed during solar maximum. Instead of reversing completely, flipping north to
south, the Sun's magnetic poles have only rotated at halfway and are now more or less lying sideways along the Sun's equator. This weaker
configuration of the magnetic shield is letting in two to three times more stardust than at the end of the 1990s. Moreover, this influx could
increase by as much as ten times until the end of the current solar cycle in 2012.
Yes, in part the problem is the way the Sun's polarity changed, but it is also true that the Solar System is entering a region that has denser, and
denser interstellar dust, as well as charged particles.
Space radiation hits record high
Now, the influx of galactic cosmic rays into our solar system has reached a record high. Measurements by NASA's Advanced Composition
Explorer (ACE) spacecraft indicate that cosmic rays are 19 per cent more abundant than any previous level seen since space flight began a half century
ago."The space era has so far experienced a time of relatively low cosmic ray activity," says Richard Mewaldt of Caltech, who is a member of the ACE
team. "We may now be returning to levels typical of past centuries."
There is nothing we can do to stop this, but politicians, policymakers, and environmentalists are using this to increase their power, and to shove
down everyone's throats their agendas.
