Charts of carbon dioxide levels evidence

The New York Times has an excellent article and accompanying charts about the scientist who first discovered rising CO2 levels. I came across the article via Barry Ritholtz’s blog, where he delivered this lovely bit of snark:

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, lack of scientific knowledge, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for empirical data. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are anonymous after all.

One wonders if you would have been as tickled by this “lovely bit of snark” if it had been delivered at the end of, say, an expose of the Climategate emails.

I suggest you listen to Piers Corbyn:

Not only is he accurate about the cooling we are experiencing right now, he states the well known and supported fact that CO2 is not a driver for temperature. Temperature is actually the driver for CO2 levels.
