Then explain why the deserts have such wild temperature fluctuations as they do. I understand that they only have carbon dioxide as the prevalent greenhouse gas.

No, you don't know that. Comets, for example, are big balls of dirty ice. Are you to tell me that not one single comet has ever hit the Earth during its history?

And did you even pay attention to that graph? CO2 has been declining for the past millions of years. Are you now going to utter that the Sun has been steadily dimming or brightening or what? But somehow, man-made CO2 production must be the sole and single cause of all this wonderful global warming we're having!
