Rising CO2 levels are not creating a global warming crisis. . .

    New data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are continuing to rise but global temperatures are not following suit. The new data undercut assertions that atmospheric carbon dioxide is causing a global warming crisis.

      It's difficult to know who to believe with all the conflicting information out there.  In November 2012 the UN claims that sea levels were rising 60% faster than predicted and that global warming had not slowed down.

        If, by the UN you mean the IPCC, then this is not surprising. The IPCC is a political body whose remit is to prove that global warmng is caused by CO2 emissions. 
        They have been caught red-handed several times creating alarmist propaganda, which they know to be false. Examples:
        Himalayan Glaciers will melt by 2035 - False
        Polar bears becoming extinct - False
        etc . .

        There is much, much evidence by independent scientists to refute each and every claim made by the IPCC. Don't believe me, just search the Internet for yourself . .

        Man made global warming is a scam. Carbon taxes will not save the planet.

          By searching the internet you can only come to your own conclusions given the information available.  There's no solid evidence to prove either side of the argument.

      No, I don't mean IPCC by the way.  The information was reported by PICIR and claims that IPCC sea-level predictions were biasedly low.

      Uh, no.  There is no reason to expect short-term temperature variations to mirror co2 emissions slavishly.  This is a pure straw-man argument.

        I am neither agreeing or disagreeing with either side of the argument personally, just pointing out some sources.  To be honest I haven't look into this information in great detail... but I got a feeling I'm about to!

      First, James Taylor (author of the article) fails to define "significant." Second, he claims his data is from the NOAA, yet falls short in citing any of the data in his opinion piece; and that is all it is, an opinion. Third, he is a senior fellow at the Heartland Institute, an organization dedicated to stopping any carbon tax, among many other so called libertarian aims.

      The article is highly suspect at best and very likely complete bunk for these reasons.

        Yes. Here's some more accurate information:

        "Global temperatures are warmer than at any time in at least 4,000 years, scientists reported Thursday, and over the coming decades are likely to surpass levels not seen on the planet since before the last ice age." Read the entire article here:

    Are you IN THE PAY OF BIG OIL or something?

    Just like the Met Office and CRU being forced to admit there was no significant warming. They were under the pay of big oil too. And the polar bears. Their numbers are going up http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story. … a9e5df868.

    Don't trust them, big oil must be paying them to breed.

    Global warning does not posit a 1:1 CO2/warning connection.  That CO2 contributes to warming is clear, but the effect is mediate by ozone levels (which are improving since the ban of CFCs for many applications) and many other factors.

    Why hasn't the hole in the Ozone layer been reported about in the last 25 years? The one that is over the top of Antarctica, New Zealand & Australia.

      There has been some reported by the Australian government here:
