So let's assume that Janice is right and that these scientists have
somehow been seduced. How come that scientific models require the CO2
change to accurately model the temperature records?

In this case it is the major cause of global warming based on solid
physics, solid data and extensive modeling.

Nothing so far global warming deniers have done matches what science
has done in this area. Sure, the sun is a very important contributor
in the climate of our earth, and thus variations would affect the
temperature as well. Interestingly enough, global warming deniers have
pointed to no evidence to link the two beyond some claims which have
been quickly put to rest due to a lack of correlation for instance.

So perhaps these scientists, seduced by politicians do have a point,
as the solid science behind it suggests.
Of course, global warming deniers, lacking any science to speak of,
have little more than motives of others to counter the fact of
That's also called "ad hominem"
