'Don't like who anymore' and what has that got to do with the subject at hand?
I understand everytime we conduct an experiment or observe a function in real time we learn something. Sometimes what we learn is what we thought we knew, wasn't right. Many ideas about solar activity have been updated with new information.
The solar constant is no longer constant. We discovered just how much high low activity in the minimums between cycles impacted climate. Didn't think that mattered before, but after cycles 21 and 22 scientists discovered it mattered a lot.
Subject at hand is still CO2 warming due to man's activities.

You always forget the two m's, man and mathematics regarding their roles in CO2 warming. Is there an experiment involving the Sun?

It was thought that CO2 forcing would cause the world to warm. It's not as if we've seen rapid warming for the past few decades, is it?

'Rapid' instead of rapid, why not put in the acutal calculations and then compare to say the 30 years prior to 1947.

Temps have increased .7*C in 160 years, that's not all that rapid. The increase in temps started before the increase in CO2. Historically that's what is recorded in the ice core data.

So was it increasing temps that caused increasing CO2?

We observe the sun. The closest experiment to date is the Pinatubo event I described earlier. We didn't 'set that up' so to call it a real experiment would be wrong as the parameters were not controlled. But scientists were ready to observe what happened.

It's what's called lucky, when opportunity meets preparation.

I'm inclined to agree with scientists who suggest that it was a bit of both, with the majority being natural.

where you see the global surface temperature rising regardless of the Sun's 11-year cycle. This is due to increasing burning of fossil fuels. Here's a comparison of natural with human effects:

LOL. You write your own material.

What is your evidence to both statements?

You don't agree with this!

Hey, Spambrat, the heat is on and it's time to prepare, so how are you getting on with your preparations?

I suggest you purchase a large box of everlasting, washable condoms.
The thought of you reproducing is a nightmare.

There you have it more hate and useless babble. You are in no position to make suggestions. Do seek help soon real soon.
