Two climate change related links from

Article #1: Global warming = climate change

This is a long, meaty article covering a lot of global warming/climate change issues. It is well worth a read.

The article reviews the long-term and short term temperature records, the changes in CO2 levels over the last 150 years, and the impact of those changes.
The temperature increasing capacity of atmospheric CO2 is known to diminish as concentrations increase. This diminution effect is probably the reason why there was no runaway greenhouse warming caused by CO2 in earlier eons when CO2 levels were known to be at levels of several thousands ppm.

Both sceptics and Global Warming advocates agree on this. IPCC Published reports, (TAR3), acknowledge that the effective temperature increase caused by growing concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere radically diminishes with increasing concentrations. This information is in the IPCC reports. It is well disguised for any lay reader....
About 83% of the effect of increasing CO2 on global warming has already occurred. Even doubling the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere (from 400 ppm to 800 ppm) will result in only a relatively small increase in temperature.

Using IPCC's own estimates of "decarbonization," if the US cuts it CO2 emissions in half, it will result in only 0.1 degree C decrease in warming. Using the estimates of "skeptics," it would only reduce warming by 0.017 degrees C.

Article #2: Why ‘Deniers’ are Always Wrong – Models can’t be falsified

Global warming activists have an excuse for everything. When nothing can falsify an hypothesis, it is no longer an hypothesis, but politics or religion.
