CO2 is Not a Pollutant
That depends on whether it is generated from the natural system or from industrial waste. The dictionary is a good source for understanding words... Let's take a look at what Webster has to say.

The Copenhagen Distraction
Rebuttal to Bjorn Lomborg on Global Warming: Bjørn Lomborg intentionally or unintentionally obfuscated the political will to mitigate climate change and certainly gained recognition and made money on his assertions. He put together his own conference and called it the Copenhagen Consensus. He wrote a book called 'The Skeptical Environmentalist ' for which the Denmark Ministry of Science found him guilty of 'scientific dishonesty'.

The Hockey Stick Controversy
Many denialists have claimed that the Hockey stick was wrong and they can prove it because a congressional subcommittee said it was wrong. Is there anyone on the planet that doesn't think a congressional subcommittee can be wrong? Nevertheless, here we show, and reference, the facts regarding 'The Hockey Stick' and the argument.

Loehle Temperature Reconstruction
The Loehle Temperature Reconstruction is a narrowly scoped loosely constructed picture that due to its limitations, is deceptive in its depiction of past climate. When placed in context of more strongly validated science it's weaknesses become more obvious. In that sense, one may go as far as to say the paper, in and of itself, is scientifically inappropriate with regard to what it is claimed to represent.

Rich document C source code header The Cosmos Myth
Did S. Fred Singer trick Revelle into an association to achieve an agenda? When the sequence of events is examined, the intentions seem to implicate his agenda. "The energy companies reportedly began taking steps to prevent the public from believing that humans are warming the planet" ... "as early as the 1980's". It looks like even then, Singer was working with Michaels, Balling, Ellsaesser and Lindzen.

CO2 Lag
Does CO2 Lag behind warming and climate change in the natural cycle? Yes. Is it lagging today? No. CO2 normally lags in the natural cycle unless some abnormal perturbation occurs. If we were in the natural cycle, CO2 levels would be around 280ppm. We are now over 387ppm and therefore CO2 is now leading in our current warming scenario, above natural cycle.

40's to 70's cooling, CO2 rising?
This is a fascinating denialist argument. If CO2 is rising, as it was in the 40's through the 70's, why would there be cooling?

Global Warming Stopped in 1998
Global warming denialists like to say that global warming stopped in 1998. Is it true? No. The warming trend continues. To understand this, one needs to understand that there is a difference between weather and climate. Weather is short term and climate is long term. The long term trend is clear. We are continuing to warm.

Global Cooling Myth in the 70's
Many claim that in the 1970's all scientists believed the earth was cooling. Factual examination of the controversial report reveals that there was a consensus. The consensus was we don't know enough yet. The confirmation of the Milankovitch cycles indicated that we were to begin a cooling phase, the introduction of industrial greenhouse gases indicated we could interrupt the natural cycle. More study was needed.

Models Can Be Wrong
It's a common mistake people make... the point is not that models 'can' be wrong. The point is models are 'always' wrong. But that does not mean that they are not relevant and useful for understanding how things work.
