Nope. You've got it the wrong way around. The rise in CO2 levels is driving global warming, which in turn is driving a feedback loop as temperatures rise globally and unlock greenhouse gases (mainly methane) in thawing permafrost.
Ah yes, the feedback loop much beloved by António Guterres and his fellow snouts in the trough travellers who depend on making a living from the 20 year old now discredited theory that CO2 causes global warming. A perfect example of correlation not being causation. :lol:

I really should have known, shouldn't I? Oh well - it's off topic, so time to let it lie. Are you a flat-earther as well?

Describing someone who doesn't believe your particular version of global warming as an idiot (because that is what flat earther means) is of course an ad hominem, the final resort of those with a limited intellect. As you said, let it lie. :thumbup:

I didn't call you an idiot. You made that connection (flat-earther=idiot) and then tried to use that to state I was making an ad-hominem attack on you. FWIW I'd say flat-earthers are deluded, not necessarily idiots. Draw your own conclusions (I'm sure you will).

So far ...

- the 'Titanic' event
- the 'Euros' embarrassment
- the 'Don't make the £2000 claim' oh but he did
- the going home for cocoa - and an ITV interview - from Normandy 'mistake'

Whoever's planning all this is doing a phenomenal job!

Did these people learn nothing from attempts to bully Trump? Unless the guy who threw these did it as a false flag exercise.

Fucking morons.

If you don't like him and what he stands for, then don't vote for him. That's how democracy works.
