The long term effect of increased CO2 is being worked out in great detail by a thing called "mathematics".

Richard Muller, the world famous geophysicist who expressed doubts about the findings of the IPCC, was paid by the Koch brothers to debunk the findings of the IPCC with a detailed study called the BEST project.

Instead, they determined that the findings of the IPCC were, if anything, conservative. If you want to learn more about the science, read the IPCC AR4. Then read some of the materials provided by NASA and NOAA in recent years. Then read about the BEST project:

bears: "Their biggest problem is that latest reports from others that show temps have been relatively flat while CO2 has risen ... seems there may be no relationship."

The problem is that the above statement by you is a bald faced lie no matter how many times the Exxon funded sites repeat it. And it will continue to be a lie no matter how many times you repeat it.
