Does atmospheric CO2 cause warming? Absolutely, otherwise Earth would be frozen solid. So the question is how much warming does 400 ppm cause (2013)? How about 300ppm (1900)? Does an increase in C02 automatically cause warming?

I like to remind people that we are in an Ice Age so a little warming might not be a bad thing. Not that I think we are warming now, in fact I think the exact opposite.

Don't tell me this, tell it to the numbskull on this thread who insists that CO2 has nothing to do with climate. Perhaps Mr. Media can explain why Venus has surface temperatures that can melt lead if CO2 and CH4 don't influence climate.

I find the case Michaels and Balling make convincing - that there is a small century plus warming trend, and that it's just as likely to be somewhat beneficial to parts of the world as harmful to others, and that the best data suggest that the effects are marginal.
