Climate change is real, and science agrees

Gruy makes the case for his argument against manmade global warming by cherry picking two months out of 912 to support his claim that man has nothing to do with it. In doing so he completely ignores the fact that NASA scientists say 2012 was the ninth warmest of any year since 1880, which continued a long term trend of rising temperatures. The nine warmest years in the 132-year record have all occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record. In fact the average global temperature has risen 1.4 degrees F since 1880. This would encompass the time frame in which Gruy rightfully mentions that CO2 and the number of cars on the road both increase. CO2 levels in 1880 were 285 PPM. Today they are 400 PPM, a notable increase.
