Horse Shit.

Hahaha.  Not only a badass, but a really, really, stupid badass too.  Would
you like my address?  Come and visit sometime.

LOL.  CO2 doesn't "cause" heat in the atmosphere.  Nobody has claimed it.
It _does_ cause heat to be retained.

LOL.  If 10,000 repeatable experiments showed it to be true, you'd just call
them 10,000 experiments by pseudo-intellectuals.  Fortunately for all of
us, your type will be the first to go extinct...

It was 80 degrees yesterday. It was 60 degrees last night. This
morning it was still 60 degrees. Where did all that warm CO2 go?
Can you show a reference to any experiment that will show that CO2
causes heat to be retained in the atmosphere? If you cant find a
citation, can you pose an experiment we can consider? Heating up some
O2/N2/CO2 mixture and measuring the termperature? Its got to be simple
at some level right? You understand it, can you explain it to me?
Don't get too close tho... I am in fact, an asshole and I will punch
you in the schnout for dissin me in public.

And that describes it best.

Am I to infer from this nasty message that you believe that man is
causing climate change, or do you just like to curse at strangers? I
asked Broughton a question and you replied to me, but you didn't
answer my question. I don't think you can show an experiment that will
show that CO2 cause heat to be retained. Prove me wrong, but no sense
in cursing.

I did not curse at a stranger.  I did agree with your self-assessment,
based on your desire to strike a stranger.

I replied to Martin Riddle, not to you.  Please learn to read usenet
postings.  Otherwise, people will continue to agree with your self-

If you conside "asshole" to be a curse word and you find it offensive,
I suggest that you not refer to yourself as one.

As for the experiment, it's rather simple.  Place a celestial body at
the same distance from Earth but without an atmosphere.  Measure the
mean temperature of this other celestial body.  If it is lower than
Earth's temperature. then we know that atmosphere has retained heat.

Mean temperature Earth: 15C, Moon -20C.

Now how much does CO2 affect this?  Compare Earth to Venus.  Venus's
atmosphere is 96% CO2.  Mean temperature, an incredible 464 C.  Far
higher than can be explained by the proximity of Venus to the sun.
Mercury, closer in, has a mean temperature of 167C.
