There is no denying that carbon dioxide levels are rising steadily (over 415 ppm right now, does not break down and sequesters in thousands of years), as does N2O (>300 ppb, but 265 times as potent a greenhouse gas as CO2, breaks down in about 121 years).

The radioactive isotopes in the CO2 show most of it is caused by burning fossil fuel. We caused that, it does influence the climate.
Man-made climate change is a fact, and deniers defy truth.

There may be studies who are a bit shaky. Maybe some goofs want to bend the truth a bit here and there 'for the good cause', just like some bend the truth for the benefit of the oil companies. But the elephant in the room cannot be ignored.
