So how do we know the C02 rise is man made?

RealClimate � How do we know that recent CO2 increases are due to human activities?

The RealClimate Blog takes on the nagging question--given the fact that we see C02 rises in the atmosphere in the last 2 centuries, how do we KNOW its man-made? They lay it down in no uncertain terms just how we are sure its human activity to blame.

Of course, there is still the bugbear of proving that the C02 rise and global warming have a causative link. I can see quibbles from certain quarters over that point.
