No, not true. What drives daily global warming is 90 million tons of man-made heat-trapping gases spewing into our atmosphere.

Carbon dioxide traps heat just like in a greenhouse and most of it stays in the air for a century; some lasts for thousands of years, scientists say. It accounts for three-quarters of the planetís heat-trapping gases. There are others, such as methane, which has a shorter life span but traps heat more effectively. Both trigger temperatures to rise over time, scientists say, which is causing sea levels to rise and some weather patterns to change.

The BIG lie all over again.

If AGW was supported by faith instead of science, it would be dogma at the churches these right wing zealots go to instead of confirmed by statements by every major science academy and a lot of science organizations.

It's like the 'missing heat'. Believers know it's there. They don't see it, they can't find it but with faith, they believe.

It is called missing integrity by ff.

Deniers miss the science but confuse it with faith in others.

Faith, not facts, drive global warming
Words of toxic topix AGW deniers, who have very little science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for their poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas. Of course, almost no toxic topix AGW deniers have science or mathematics degrees.

toxic topix AGW deniers have faith that if they aggressively demean science & mathematics & the core of western civilization technical development, then uneducated political bias will rule the world.
