It is well known that most of that warming is NOT due to the direct warming effect of the CO2 by itself, which is relatively weak. It is instead due to indirect effects (positive feedbacks) that amplify the small amount of direct warming from the CO2. The most important warmth-amplifying feedbacks in climate models are clouds and water vapor.

You see anyone can get evidence to back up their point of view from accredited professionals.
I think we're going to have to agree to disagree on this one my friend. Although I do love a good debate as much as the next man, I've had about 3 hours sleep and my brain work not much goodly today. I'm just gonna end up getting frustrated and sarcastic as hell.
Maybe on the next climate thread I'll be more alert.
Peace out \m/
[edit to add]
Just noticed also that your data is a little outdated compared to mine. by at least 8 years.

Secondly - the theory and scientific base for Global warming is based on an unproven computer model.

IT was. up to maybe the past few years theres been hardly any snow. then 2 years ago it started snowed from march til april.
Now its just like BAM!
you gotta remember through. because of where the uk is. global warming will make it colder. as if our weather cant get any more #e as it already is
Everyone complains, YET here I was tonight looking out my window seeing cars slide all over the road, seeing people slip and fall; did anyone do anything about it? NO!
Ya'know what I did? With my cold, chest infection, throat infection and fatigue; I went out with a longtail shovel opened up the grit bins and gritted my entire estate! It took me an hour and I was very weak and tired. I watched everyone looking at me, as if I was not right in the head.

You have grit? You're lucky! I haven't seen a drop of the stuff here in the North of England.
You are right about the complaining though, yes it's cold so I've got 4 layers on and I've walked to the shops instead of getting the car stuck in the ice and snow. Keeping on topic, scientists are not predicting the weather and 'climate change' correctly with their models, that's why I don't buy AGW.

Gotta remember also that the Global Warming scammers now call it "Climate Change".....perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the climate is ALWAYS changing....
The first four months of 2013 have seen average national daily maximum temperatures reach 1.34 degrees above the average for 1961-1990, shy only of the blisteringly hot start to 2005, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
