You acknowledge a positive correlation between atmospheric temperature and CO2 content.
I note you claim the dynamic is the other way around relative to the consensus (and there is a consensus). That is, CO2 is increasing because temperature is increasing. Partially true, as things stand.
All you have described is well-known to scientists. There are many instances ...[text shortened]... trust?
So the next question is: What has caused the air temperature to rise in the first place?
"Water warms more slowly than air. Increased atmospheric CO2 has caused a sustained elevated mean global atmospheric temperature"
I'm glad you brought that up. You can see on the long term graph that sea levels have been rising as far back as 1880. Since you acknowledge a lag time from temp rises to sea level rise then temps must have been rising prior to 1880.
What caused temps to rise before 1880? Simple question. If it is not natural causes what is it?
