I'm amazed that people still argue with Crakrjakass it`s useless he`s an obnoxious obtuse person, if you show him the sky and tell hem it`s blue he`ll find a way to prove you that because you`re a liberal/socialist/progressist/different it can`t be blue or you`re imposing the color blue and he`ll show charts and articles that join his point of vue.Let him soak in his stinking "knowledge" and drown on its own.

@Blackcatseye: Thanks for participating. But do I really need to explain that the amount of CO2 released by opening bottles of soda pop is negligible compared to the 32 gigatons (2008) of CO2 that's released every year from the burning of fossil fuels by cars, trucks, planes, factories, and power plants? Just the CO2 released by the trucks delivering the soda dwarfs the CO2 in those bottles.

@CrakrJak: I've managed to find a little more info on your Dr. Spencer, the "Official Climatologist of the Rush Limbaugh Show." He actually makes a cameo appearance in a couple of Peter Sinclair`s videos as a crank.

@CrakrJak: Thanks for letting me know where you got your chart. That Dr. Spencer is an odd duck--a scientist who rejects both the theory of evolution and anthropogenic global warming.
In claiming that my NASA chart is 11 years out of date, you've committed an error. See the light gray vertical lines? Those are 10 year increments. See how the last data point is just to the right of the 2010 line? Yeah, that would be the year 2011.
The chart is an updated version of one originally published by James Hansen, the head of NASA`s Goddard Institute, in 2006. A page providing links to the peer-reviewed article, a summary of the methods used to develop the chart, as well as all of the data used in the chart, can be found here.
