The 'Misleading' Temperature Graph
An article at Powerline does a good job of discussing the controversy pertaining to this graph and I recommend it.
But, there is a far more important question that I'll bring up (for the umpteenth time): What is the optimal temperature for earth? Climate science refuses (yes, refuses) to answer or attempt to answer that question. There are many who believe the optimal temperature is actually higher than today and that the higher levels of CO2 increase agriculture production to the extent that it cancels out the other issues.
Are they correct? I don't know. But, it is telling that the climate scientists I have asked refuse to answer the question.
