Temperature Leads Carbon - Rebutting a Common Denier Myth

Thomas Schueneman

The latest from greenman3610 (Peter Sinclair) in the Climate Denial Crock of the Weekseries. One of the most pernicious myths from the climate denial industry is the idea that "temperature leads carbon." In other words, the assertion that carbon emissions from human activity are not causing any rise in global temperature averages, but somehow it's the other way 'round.

They point to studies of the climate conditions hundreds of thousands of years ago, as the Earth emerged from the last ice age. If you're thinking comparing modern conditions with that of several hundred thousand years ago is comparing apples with oranges, you'd be right. It's also picking cherries.
