Questioning cause and effect before the world invests in technology that will likely double the cost of electrical power is not a bad thing. The USDOE has been developing various CO2 capture and sequestration technologies but has not yet deployed any. They are still in pilot stages, at best, and, as they mature, will start to be demonstrated at ever increasing scales. In the interim, nuclear power will enjoy a resurgence and, possibly, no CO2 will have to be sequestered if fossil plants are replaced with nukes.
Meanwhile, study of the most important greenhouse gas, water vapor, should continue as models generally ignore its effects. Natural weather cycles should also be investigated in detail. We know the earth was much warmer 1000 and 2000 years ago with periods of cold in between. CO2 concentrations trailed the temperature changes and did not lead them.
