Why Don’t Global Surface Temperature Trends Match Atmospheric CO2 Increases?

In Daily Measurements by Rob Monroe

Question submitted to Scripps Oceanography science magazine explorations now¬†by Ruben M., Watsonville, Calif. Great question Ruben! The surface temperature we experience every day is not expected to perfectly track CO2 because CO2 isn’t the only factor driving climate change. Still, it is quite an important factor, and the overall rise in temperature does roughly follow the overall rise in CO2. …
