From Discovery Channel News:
Earth’s climate continues to confound scientists. Following a 30-year trend of warming, global temperatures have flatlined since 2001 despite rising greenhouse gas concentrations, and a heat surplus that should have cranked up the planetary thermostat.
That should be good news, right? According to the article (and a truckload of data that conflicts with the global warming theory), climatologists don’t know why the Earth isn’t heating up as it should. However, Kyle Swanson of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee says:
“When the climate kicks back out of this state, we’ll have explosive warming. Thirty years of greenhouse gas radiative forcing will still be there and then bang, the warming will return and be very aggressive.”
Wow. And people wonder why I am not buying the whole global warming thing.

There is additional collaborative data that supports the issue that the load of CO2 is adding to the climate. I can’t answer your specific questions on Global Warming well enough to show you that your conclusion is wrong and here is the reason.
It has taken me nearly ten years to fully digest the objections of Intelligent Design and Creationism well enough to sufficiently defend evolution. I did this by going to the source of study, people who actually work in the field.
The way that I see it, the approach of the global warming “skeptics” in using rhetorical tricks and casting false doubt that look persuasive on the surface are the same tricks used by the creationists. Once a person spends sufficient time examining them, one sees how wrong they are.
Given that, I would rather go to a climatologist to learn what it happening to the earth’s climate than to take a quote and conclude that it is bunk. Sometimes, it is okay to ask an expert when you have questions.
