    A handy few bob if you can provide verifiable scientific evidence. This video was posted a few days ago..



    "I am offering €1000 to any person who can provide me with verifiable scientific evidence that carbon dioxide is causing catastrophic and unprecedented global warming".

    well what is 'unprecedented' ?? what would he accept as evidence of precedent?

    I cant answer that, but any scientific evidence at all could be grounds to claim the 1000..

    Climate change is a constant. Always happening. NASA provides scientific evidence that global warming has been occurring. Also National Geographic.

    But is it caused by carbon dioxide?

    Jeremy D. Shakun, J.D. et al; Global warming preceded by increasing carbon dioxide concentrations during the last deglaciation. Nature volume 484, pages49–54(2012).
    Abstract
    Here we construct a record of global surface temperature from 80 proxy records and show that temperature is correlated with and generally lags CO2 during the last (that is, the most recent) deglaciation. Differences between the respective temperature changes of the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere parallel variations in the strength of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation recorded in marine sediments. These observations, together with transient global climate model simulations, support the conclusion that an antiphased hemispheric temperature response to ocean circulation changes superimposed on globally in-phase warming driven by increasing CO2 concentrations is an explanation for much of the temperature change at the end of the most recent ice age.

    Myles R. Allen et al (April 2009). Warming caused by cumulative carbon emissions towards the trillionth tonne. Nature volume 458, pages 1163–1166.
    Total anthropogenic emissions of one trillion tonnes of carbon (3.67 trillion tonnes of CO2), about half of which has already been emitted since industrialization began, results in a most likely peak carbon-dioxide-induced warming of 2 °C above pre-industrial temperatures, with a 5–95% confidence interval of 1.3–3.9 °C.

    Susan Solomon, et al (January 2009). Irreversible climate change due to carbon dioxide emissions. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 106 (6) 1704-1709.
    The severity of damaging human-induced climate change depends not only on the magnitude of the change but also on the potential for irreversibility. This paper shows that the climate change that takes place due to increases in carbon dioxide concentration is largely irreversible for 1,000 years after emissions stop. Following cessation of emissions, removal of atmospheric carbon dioxide decreases radiative forcing, but is largely compensated by slower loss of heat to the ocean, so that atmospheric temperatures do not drop significantly for at least 1,000 years.

    Simple, put a thermometer into a glass of sodium bicarbonate and add vineger.

    During the French Revolution the farmers in Marseille suffered crop depletion due to the Icelandic volcanoes releasing ash and dust into the atmosphere.
