Quote: Most of the willful ignorance peddled as climate skepticism fudges the evidence that global temperatures have risen. That, however, is far down the chain of causes. If I put a blanket on, I will retain more heat. How much heat, in how much time, depends on my temperature, the room's temperature, and how well the blanket insulates. But there is no arguing that I will retain more heat. The only question is, how fast?

The way that carbon dioxide (CO2) blankets the Earth is figurative, not literal. But there is a literal, everyday comparison to something that very few doubt: the workings of a microwave oven. We have turned the microwave on with us in the oven, and there is no timer.

Good analogy
