The other factor is the wobble of the Earth on the axis. I live where a huge glacier once stood that carved the great lakes. I really think the roation of Earth's axis impacted the ice ages and the recent heat up. Does CO2 play a big part in the warm up? Yes! Is it all man made? Nope, can we control it? Nope.
I think reducing CO2 emmissions is just plain common sense. They have proof that the Earth has gone through cycles of heat and cold throughout the millienia(sp?)
