ABSTRACT
The article discusses various myths that attempt to discredit theories of global warming, and tells why the myths are false. One example is the myth that states carbon dioxide (CO2) levels only rose after the start of warm periods, so CO2 does not cause warming. In response, it is known that CO2 is a greenhouse gas because it absorbs and emits infrared. Basic physics proves that such gases will trap heat radiating from Earth, and that the planet would be a lot colder if this did not happen.
