How much warmer has the world become since a) 1880 and b) the beginning of 1997?
Since 1880, when reliable temperature records began to be kept across most of the globe, the world has warmed by about 0.75 degrees Celsius.
From the start of 1997 until August 2012, however, figures released last week show the answer is zero: the trend, derived from the aggregate data collected from more than 3,000 worldwide measuring points, has been flat.

So why are carbon taxes still being imposed?
Why are the polar ice caps melting?
It is known as Climate Change. This has always happened, and probably always will - and the truth is that nobody understands it or can predict it. There were times in the past when the Earth was much warmer than now, and times when it was much cooler.
As for the polar ice caps, they freeze, they melt, then they freeze again then they melt again. Sometimes they get thinner, then they get thicker again. Get the picture?
Climate change has nothing to do with CO2 emissions. If there were zero human CO2 emissions today, climate change would still hapopen. The polar ice caps may melt, they may not. In any case, carbon taxes will not save our planet.

I'm confused. I've read and heard arguments that global warming is really just part of a natural temperature change process for the earth. I've also read that it's completely man-made? Is it one or both of these? Please...

Why don't we hear of "Man Made Global Warming" anymore? Simple. Because global warming is not and never was caused by man and his CO2 emissions. Now even the Royal Society, a staunch man-made global warming...
