Don't you see the faulty logic in this statement?

(<-- see how obvious and obtuse it is to selectively use a specific, narrow time frame (which supports only MY position) that excludes the WIDEST range of time and data available for us to use?)
If all of mankind ceased to exist in the next 20 minutes, the earth would STILL warm up to the point that "global-warmists" are screaming about! By THEIR "logic", the sea will STILL rise and displace huge numbers of "creatures" that live on islands/beach fronts/ocean coasts etc. The glaciers will STILL melt, the polar bears will STILL starve, the polar ice packs will STILL recede etc., etc., etc. and... Al Gore will STILL use more energy than any 10 humans that used to exist.
ON EDIT: News flash folks... No matter WHAT we do, or do NOT do, the average temperature of the earth is GOING to rise by more than a few degrees. That temperature rise IS going to cause a massive release of CO2 (CO2 lags temperature) which is THEN going to increase the "greenhouse effect" which will then, probably cause an additional increase in the earth's temperature.
You heard it here first.
