Nor does it mean that carbon dioxide is any less important as a greenhouse gas. Like many researchers before, Jouzel's team argues that a subtle shift in the Earth's orbit around the Sun triggered a minute amount of warming. "But you need carbon dioxide to amplify the effect," Jouzel says

This article supports the eco nazis. If true, it is incredibly bad news and means that co2 levels need to be reduced now. What it means is that when the earth begins to warm, co2 rises, which causes more warming, which causes even more co2 and so on.

Of course, the article does not claim this is true, it only says there is some evidence supporting this possiblity. However, it is important for the conservative community to keep an open mind on this issue and not disagree with the eco nazis just to disagree with them. Even a blind squirrel will occassionally find an acorn.

I agree with your post, but doesn't warming create more plant life, therefore increasing the demand for CO2? This planet balances everything else perfectly, why not that?

Hardly. The current eco-nazi conventional wisdom is that increasing atmospheric CO2 heats up the globe AND man caused increasing atmospheric CO2. This new data, though not contradicting the view that incr CO2 heats up the globe, does suggest that mankind had no part in causing it.

It leaves open the "we should do something about it" argument, but may remove mankind's culpability in causing it.

The findings also are more consistent with the older view that changes in earth's orbit or solar cycles are the likely culprit.

Of course, statists have an uncanny knack for accepting as truth, the exact opposite of the truth.
