Re: The Great Global Warming Swindle

It's actually quite simple. The CO2 increases follows Earth warming by about 800 years, not the other way round! The earth warms, which warms the sea very slowly (due to its enormous size). The warming sea releases more CO2 as it warms.

What is happening is that global warming causes CO2 to rise, not CO2 causing global warming. The commonly shown graphs of CO2 vs temp over very long periods (such as in An Inconvenient Truth) show this but good old Al gets it the wrong way round. The graphs do show the same trend, but the temperature one is in front!

From 1940 - 1975 CO2 emissions increased strongly thanks to the post war boom, but temperatures actually dropped.....

The real likely cause is sun activity, for which strong evidence was shown in the film.

Hopefully Channel 4 will repeat it so people can see for themselves and make their minds up, rather than be like churches criticising Life of Brian without seeing it.
