  No excuses for climate inaction
In his confirmation hearing this week, the nominee to lead the EPA, Scott Pruitt, generously acknowledged that climate change is not a hoax (thank you), but then went on to say that the extent of a human role in climate change is uncertain and should be the subject of continuing debate.

Global Carbon Cycle Primer

There is a natural greenhouse effect when carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and other gases trap heat in the atmosphere and warm the Earth. The concentrations of these gases remained relatively constant from the 700s to the 1700s – the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. Since then, greenhouse gas concentrations have risen 44%, raising the Earth’s mean global temperature by 1.4°F.
