The article focuses on the issue of whether carbon dioxide (COm) or solar forcing is responsible for global warming over the 20th century. According to the author, there is no real direct evidence which can be used to implicate anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs) as the main factor responsible for global warming. It cites the reasons why anthropogenic greenhouse gases were blamed as the main cause of global warming. It notes that pollution and depletion are the two primary reasons why fossil fuel are bad.
