>Can anyone who believes that it really isn't getting hotter explain why, if its not getting hotter all the world's glaciers and ice shields are simultaneously melting faster than at any time in geological history?
Carbon black. If you maintained the same level of CO2 in the atmosphere and increased the soot you would see a slight amount of atmospheric cooling but a much larger warm up in bright surfaces such as ice and snow. That is from the IPCC themselves. Somewhere close to half of black carbon sources are from fossil fuel sources. That said, the other half are from burning biomass and bio-fuels, which are considered carbon neutral sources, therefore the reduction of fossil sources and an increase of bio sources can still leave us in a situation that melts all the glacers.
