    You just said that CO2 LAGS temperature by 200 to 1,000 years. Then in the next sentence you say "But the co2 levels and temps, nevertheless, correlate strongly, and the increased co2 amplifies the warming" that's the opposite of correct

    By his own admission, he doesn't grasp the science and is apparently unwilling, or unable to even try. He holds a quasi religious faith in science and flatly refuses to accept anything said by anyone which challenges that faith. Even when a climate scientist produces peer reviewed, published literature which challenges his faith, he simply rejects that science as the work of a heretic.

    He has no theory, he has no working knowledge of the science and has no interest in gaining one...such an interest might lead to him questioning his faith and that can not be allowed to happen. He has his faith and it keeps him warm...he needs, nor wants anything else.

    He can't accept the fact that the correlation shows that CO2 increases follow temperature increases and that the correlation demonstrates that rising CO2 is the result of temperature increases, not the cause...

    He won't have either his faith or his dogma questioned..
