Man has been warming the planet by puffing out CO2….since the 50’s…before that it was Mother Nature….apparently.

This one showing the UK summer sunshine is perhaps even more clear…the rise in sunshine from the end of the 70’s to the distinct drop off of summer sunshine at the end of the 90’s:
Are the oceans sucking up the missing heat as Harrabin (English graduate) insists…or is the heat just missing because the sun ain’t shining?
No doubt the answer will be…yes the sun has an effect but man has made it worse.
