    climate scientists would say that the CO2 emissions were having a wide range of negative effects, rather than hanging their arguments entirely on global warming.  It makes it too easy for nay-sayers to come up with counter examples, and there are so many other measurable impacts.  Lower pH in the oceans are drastically changing ecosystems.  Pollution is incresing healthcare costs due to asthma and other respiratory ailments. Architecture that has lasted for millenia is disolving from the acidity of rain and the very air itself.  

    If the current lack of sunspots should be pushing us into another little (or big) ice-age that doesn't happen because of the increased CO2, that still doesn't make it safe for us to keep putting poison into the atmosphere and the oceans.
