Even BEP's hero from MIT Richard Lindzen is on board with the fact that CO2 is a greenhouse gas and that the amounts humans have released to the atmosphere are enough to cause warming. He just thinks the negative feedback mechanisms in the atmosphere (namely clouds) are strong enough to resist the warming influences. The vast majority of climate scientists disagree with him. He has had to back track on some of his earlier papers. His theories are also discredited by the fact that the earth's temperature keeps going up, which wouldn't happen if his theory was correct.
