Over the past 55 years there has been an over 80 ppm rise in CO2, from 1960 to 1970 the average rise was .8 ppm per year, 70-80 1.3 ppm, 80-90 1.6 ppm, 90-00 1.2 ppm, 00-10 1.4 ppm, 10-15 2.2 ppm. We know there is a delay in CO2 increase and the effect, how much of a delay is not certain(~40 years is current best theory). If the current weather effects are the result of energy being trapped by increasing CO2 with a 40 year delay we are in for increasingly severe weather for many decades to come.
