Next there is the problem of attributing temperature changes to CO2 emissions. In
the recent report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), http://www.ipcc.ch/graphics/graphics/ar4-
The tropical troposphere stands out as a good place to measure the specific effects
of CO2. The contour lines imply an expected warming of the tropical tropospheric

There are other clues that the effect of greenhouse gases may have been overstated. The stratosphere is supposed to be cooling, but the satellite instruments show that since 1995 there has been no such trend.
The upper 700 meters of the oceans should be accumulating heat. But since 2003 we have had a global network of 3,000 robotic buoys monitoring the oceans (see www.argo.net) and they have shown no such heat accumulation.
I know that the IPCC supposedly has thousands of experts who all say that global warming is a crisis. I was one of the people who worked on that report. The reality is they never asked us if we agreed with the conclusions, and only a handful of authors had a say in the final summary. In any case, I don’t care how many professors agree or disagree on something, what matters is whether I agree with the data.
Our best current data sets do not support the idea that CO2 is causing a global warming problem. New laws to reduce CO2 levels will lead to higher energy prices and more unemployment, and would not affect global CO2 levels anyway. Americans seem to be realizing that costly CO2 regulations are a bad idea. I agree.

The anthropogenic wasting of fossil fuel CO2 to the atmosphere shows no relation
with the temperature changes even in an annual basis. The absence of immediate relation
between CO2 and temperature is evidence that rising its mix ratio in the atmosphere
will not imply more absorption and time residence of energy over the Earth surface.
