The anti-CO2 alarmists and fortunetellers of global warming catastrophes have created a multi-billion marketing niche for themselves via pure anti-science hucksterism - despite their self-serving prognostications, the latest empirical evidence clearly indicates that a high growth of atmospheric CO2 levels has not generated the "unequivocal" and civilization-ending global warming as predicted...instead, global cooling prevails

This most recent update confirms what has become patently obvious to the majority of the sentient public: that the global warming alarmists' predictions of 'temperature-hell' on Earth is without any scientific merit or empirical validation.
The accompanying plot of HadCRUT4 global temperature trends and atmospheric CO2 growth trends makes it unambiguously obvious why billions of taxpayer monies have literally been wasted on enriching the Al Gores and James Hansens of the world:
1. Examining just the last datapoint (the last 5 years ending April 2013) on the chart, it is clear that the largest atmospheric CO2 growth trend (a 215ppm per century growth rate) is directly associated with the lowest global warming (largest cooling) per century trend (a -0.73 degrees per century rate)
2. Obviously, over the last dozen years, or so, the global warming trend has morphed into a global cooling trend...robustly and significantly different than the anti-CO2 IPCC's projected 2-6°C global warming increase forecast
3. Accelerating, rapid and "runaway, tipping point" global warming does not exist, nor is it even remotely and/or feasibly "imminent"
4. Unequivocal, irrefutable and undeniable "global warming" and related catastrophe scenarios are nothing but the pure b.s. hucksterism pushed by both the anti-CO2 jihad fanatics and the money-loving recipients of government funding (ie, research grants, subsidized green pricing, tax credits & deductions and etc.)
5. The UN's IPCC and the other immensely taxpayer-funded climate "science" agencies (e.g., NOAA, NASA, UK's MetOffice, Australia CISRO, etc.), continue to claim that CO2 levels act as the globe's thermostat, which will allow politicians and bureaucrats to "dial-in" the desired Earth's temperature... this claim is demonstrably a flagrant, anti-science falsehood, per the actual depicted temperature/CO2 evidence above
