Rob, that's delusional reasoning. My point stands firm - huge rise in CO2 levels alongside flatlining, then dropping temps since 2005 that are the coldest now in the last seventeen years. Game over for alarmists, based on their own rules. See here from 11-11-03:

"LIVERMORE, Calif. — In order to separate human-caused global warming from the “noise” of purely natural climate fluctuations, temperature records must be at least 17 years long, according to climate scientists.

To address criticism of the reliability of thermometer records of surface warming, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory scientists analyzed satellite measurements of the temperature of the lower troposphere (the region of the atmosphere from the surface to roughly five miles above) and saw a clear signal of human-induced warming of the planet."

"My point stands firm - huge rise in CO2 levels alongside flatlining"

1) An 8% CO2 increase isn't *huge*.
2) Temps didn't flatline. They went up about .15C. You said GISS showed no warming, but it clearly did. You said CO2 went up 40%, but oops, you failed 5th grade math and it was really 8%.

"then dropping temps since 2005 that are the coldest now in the last seventeen years"

Absolute nonsense. 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 (tied for warmest or second warmest), and 2011 were ALL warmer than any year before 1998. The top 12 warmest years have all occurred from '98 on. And do you not see the irony in posting a link to a study that says that you need a trend of at least 17 years in order to separate noise from signal, and *then* using one starting in 2005? Talk about delusional! Do you even read what you post?
From the article:

"Looking at a single, noisy 10-year period is cherry picking, and does not provide reliable information about the presence or absence of human effects on climate,"

Yet, *you* think that cherry picking an even shorter period is better, and you post to a study that explicitly says you are wrong while doing it!

Slaying the sky dragon? Bwahahahaa! More like tilting at windmills.

"You said CO2 went up 40%"

That should be 30%, not 40%.
