During President Obama's press conference on Wednesday (his first in 8 months), he said, "We can't attribute any particular weather event to climate change. What we do know is the temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted even 10 years ago."

I must admit, it is refreshing to see the president discard some of the hysteria surrounding Hurricane Sandy and its link to global warming. Anthropogenic global warming activists will attribute every extreme weather event to global warming, which has now been termed "climate change" since the earth has stopped warming.

However, the rest of his comments are certainly a byproduct of what I opined about in my August article, "Mr President, Tear Down This Wall." He is surrounded by a wall that does not allow the truth about climate change, or at least the light of debate, to ever come forth.

Let us avoid a thousand words by using one picture to quickly debunk the president's statement on the global temperature.

Not only is the temperature no longer rising, but one can also see the disconnect with CO2.

As far as the temperatures rising faster than forecasted, a couple of points:

1.) The only way that could happen is if they were being forecasted to fall, since they are not rising.

2.) When you compare the observed temperatures of the past 10 years against all the climate model predictions, the result should do more than raise eyebrows about how much taxpayer money is being wasted on climate science that is proving to be wrong.

Before we adopt carbon policy that can hurt our already struggling economy, there needs to be an unbiased debate about what is actually driving our climate. A leader truly interested in the good of his nation would allow the lifeblood of the economy, which is still fossil fuel energy sources, to flow freely while cultivating the alternative energy sources in a way where someday they can compete and drive down prices further. If the president is serious about doing what is in the best interest of the nation, then he will acknowledge the reality of the AGW situation: It has paused, and in the coming years will be proven to be cyclical in nature as cooling becomes more established.

I think ALL of the CO2 in the Earth's Atmosphere is from man.
I'm not sure how much "Man Made" CO2 is in the Earth's Atmosphere.
There is .04% CO2 in the Earth's Atmosphere and of that "Man" has added an extra 4% (1 part in 62,500)
