Our industrial release of CO and C02 is constantly on the rise and the natural check on these gases, photosynthesis, is constantly on the decline with the destruction of forest.
Wrong. Dead wrong.
Globally, forests (tropical and mid-latitude) are NOT disappearing: today, they are 99.5% as much as they were at mid-century, and in the US in particular, have increased significantly.
CO2 has been much, much higher previously, and temps (at the same time) have been both much higher, and much lower, than now. There simply is NO link in ANY record at ANY time between CO2 levels and temperatures.
Let's clarify that. They are closely correlated (to judge from the ice core sampling)...
But the Gore-ons have it backwards. Temperature changes are a LEADING indicator of what CO2 concentrations will be: the libs have it backwards.
