Exposing AGW for the con it is

An interesting interview with Professor Ian Plimer, author of Heaven and Earth:  Global Warming, the Missing Science.  The book points out, for example,

... that polar ice has been present on earth for less than 20 per cent of geological time; that extinctions of life are normal; that climate changes are cyclical and random; that the CO2 in the atmosphere — to which human activity contributes the tiniest fraction — is only 0.001 per cent of the total CO2 held in the oceans, surface rocks, air, soils and life; that CO2 is not a pollutant but a plant food; that the earth's warmer periods — such as when the Romans grew grapes and citrus trees as far north as Hadrian's Wall — were times of wealth and plenty.

I've said it before, but make note of that... CO2 makes up only 0.001 percent of the Earth's atmosphere  (one thousandth of one percent) and the Human contribution to that one thousandth of one percent is minuscule in the extreme.... minuscule to the point of making it ridiculous to conclude that human's have any effect on the climate of Earth.
