Climate Denial crock of the Week: “Temp leads Carbon”

  1. I guess this means that you agree that when Al Gore presented that HUGE chart of CO2 and temperature, and suggested, based on that chart, that CO2 drives temperature, he was wrong.

    In which case, I’d have thought it would have been a good idea to correct that huge misleading conclusion, as I suspect many people still think that CO2 drives temperature based on what Al Gore said.

  2. Hey Steve,

    Sorry, but the CO2 / temperature lag discussion has been discussed countless occasions already. Start with this one from back in 2007:

    As I said in the other post – can you suggest a peer reviewed journal article that shows that CO2 doesn’t drive temperature?
