In this, I discuss two commonly-cited pieces of 'evidence' that suggest a link between mankind's CO2 emissions and global warming.
If someone makes an extreme claim, especially one that requires action and sacrifice from others, the onus of proof lies with, I would say, the maker of the claim. If I say that we must fence off Wimbledon Common and ban anyone's going there, because they might disturb the wombles that live there, I'd hope that you would demand some evidence first that wombles exist, before agreeing to pay for the fence.
Religious people make extreme claims in all manner of bizarre supernatural things, and then refuse to provide evidence, and yet demand respect for their beliefs. Is the requirement to believe that lowering CO2 emissions is necessary to save us all, really so different?
The graph you see in the video is of course a simplification, for the sake of clarity. There are many plots of this graph on the web, but none lends itself to a short simple video like this one. Try here for more detail: http://joannenova.com.au/global-warming/ice-core-graph/
Laurie David, an American climate activist, found another way of dealing with this graph - she just swapped the labels round! (See http://curezone.org/forums/am.asp?i=1203790)
