I came across a graph of land/sea temperature changes and atmospheric CO2 changes for the past 5 decades (below) , which appears to be devastating to the CO2-centric theory of warming. Am I reading it wrong?From Climate4you:
Pachauri thinks it'll take another 13-23 more years--in addition to the past 17--to determine whether their crumbling catastrophic AGW theory is a bomb.
But I think all he needs to do is look back at their own datasets over the past 54 years (datasets the IPCC supposedly rely upon for their Assessment Reports) of land/sea temperature changes and atmospheric CO2 changes, and he should be able to see what I am seeing--which phenomenon occurs first--changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide seem to follow temperature changes (not the other way around). Even adding in the newest (adjusted) HadCRUT4 dataset still doesn't help them...
