Study: Send 'Carbon Footprint' To The Ash Heap

As it turns out - who knew? - carbon dioxide isn't warming the planet:
Global Warming Models Called Into Question By New Study
Investor's Business Daily editorial

The left's proposed solutions for the world's ills are based on the idea that carbon dioxide is a climate-heating poison that must be scrubbed from the global economy at all cost. Yet another study shows this is foolish.

The study in the journal Science found that global temperatures appear to be far less sensitive to the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere than originally estimated.

This sounds prosaic, but it's a bombshell — another in a long line of revelations showing the scientific fraud at the heart of the anti-global warming movement.

The study's findings are simple and devastating. "This implies that the effect of CO2 on climate is less than previously thought," said Oregon State University's Andreas Schmittner, the study's main author.

Coupled with the fact the average global temperature hasn't increased at all over the past decade — even though under all of the global warming models now in use, this is impossible — warmist ideology is crumbling. There is no climate armageddon on the horizon. [link]
So carbon dioxide is not killing us after all.

That coupled with this new revelation ...

"Many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data" and ...

... it goes without question that the global warming crusades are toast.

Now, if someone could break the news to the zealots at the EPA.
