What fact, development, trend, chart, etc piece of data or admission would it take for you to admit it's false / a hoax? Even better, is it possible for you to admit it ever, under any circumstances, even to yourself?

I know this is probably a very disliked way of stating things, but global warming or climate change I honestly believe has done more good for the specific and real issues (such as deforestation, the tar sands, etc) than would have been done otherwise.

You forget one important difference between CO2 and nuclear bombs: thus far we have only predictions of catastrophic warming.
Oh please. The bomb was only manufactured and successfully tested after predictions were made of its operation, based on calculations.
Until you personally know enough math to disprove the calculations of the effect of CO2 levels on temperature trends, you have no business saying there is no such effect.

The whole global warming hoax conspiracy is a politically embedded American creation. Since it's inception, it's gained a few foreign political interests, generally right leaning. But it could only find roots in a country like America which has right and left leaning "scientists" that back causes to the highest bidder. America has even employed the very same organization that defended the tobacco industry to skew the evidence to their favour, that's quite telling.
Real scientists, who have no part in American politics, or are connected to American interests, are basically of one stance on global warming, being that of human causes. The moment you leave America's boarders, you find the "controversy" suddenly evaporates.
