The sun allows the earth to be livable because the greenhouse effect traps heat. BUT the sun is not responsible for climate change That is a result of human activity increasing the greenhouse gases, which trap more heat. The primary gases we generate are methane, CO2, Nitrous Oxides, Low Level Ozone along with CFCs and HCFs There are a number more but less significant I dare you to present real climate science as in peer reviewed paper that disproves AGW You wont be able to do it

Doubling of CO2 increases temperature about 1.2C and then there are feedbacks. Not sure where you got .1C from. Are you suggesting negative feedbacks that swallow up almost all the warming? I haven't seen a good quantification of that anywhere. Now if .1C is correct, then it would come from climate science. If that .1C is correct and not being said, then yes climate science is political science. Now the sun being the larger factor is relevant only if the CO2 warming is small by comparison. If the solar warming is in balance, then the change in CO2 could cause a large disruption to this balance.

You, once again, use failed logic. One lion cannot bring down a full grown, healthy bull elephant that is in the vast plains of Africa. A pride of lions can do so. The tiny, seemingly insignificant CO2 molecule cannot trap enough heat energy to warm the planet. Put enough of the CO2 molecules to help out and it becomes a different story. Added Jim Z, live and learn Also note that CO2 has properties that other gases in the atmosphere do not have or is more potent in its greenhouse effect than most all of the other gases in the atmosphere.

In the eyes and minds of self hating AGW cultists humanity is far more powerful than any other celestial source of energy in the cosmos. Why? Because if AGW cultists can blame humanity for natural events then they can control humanity. That is their prime objective.

I doubt that a pride of lions could bring down a full grown bull elephant. Maybe a pride of lions that specializes in hunting elephants might take a female but I digress. I don't know that doubling CO2 increases the temperature by 0.1 Deg C. It is probably as accurate as the 0.7 Deg C or sometimes much more as predicted by some alarmists. The sun is big and it is long way off and that is fortunate for us since it is like living next to a giant hydrogen bomb.

It proves that you are a scientifically illiterate twit with no intellectual integrity? The sun is 93,000,000 miles away, but with only a lens so small you can hold it in your fingers you can start a forest fire.

The sun is also 92 million miles away, CO2 is here. All that proves is your ignorance

No. It proves you don't really understand science.

No, it does not prove that climate science is a political science. It proves that you are politically motivated and don't understand science...or probably anything else, really.
