Infantile Correlation Science

The comments section of this post at WizBang Help-Help-Im-Being-Repressed reminded me yet again just how little intellectual strength the man made global warming believers can actually muster.

I am officially coining a new acronym, ICS or Infantile Correlation Science to describe the weak theory behind most of the man made global warming beliefs.

Correlation is not causation but in this case there is not even correlation.

In the last 100 years we have seen: 1) a sharp rise in global temperatures in the early 1900's 2) a definite cooling from 1940 to 1970 and 3) a rise from 1970 - 2000.

This temperature record does not correlate at all to: 1) no rise in CO2 in the early 1900's and 2) a definite rise in CO2 from 1940 to 2000. Temperatures went up when CO2 was stable and temperatures went down (1940 - 1970) when CO2 was rising.

Until anyone explains this apparent disconnect between CO2 and temperatures I'll contine to consider the believers in man made global warming as the true deniers of science in this debate.
