Heck, I've seen them be wrong on THE SAME day... I always wonder how they can try to predict 7 days out when they've been wrong just 12 hours out.

It's based on the amount of greenhouse gases (H2O, CO2, CH4, N2O, O3, CFCs) emitted by human activity. By comparing the emissions of those gas since the late 19th Century with observed rise in ocean temperatures, science has observed that Earth has gotten warmer. By projecting the future greenhouse gas production and converting that to the corresponding rise in ocean temperatures, a reasonable estimate on the extent of global climate change can be made.

H2O is indeed water. Countless thousands of tons of it are naturally present in Earth's atmosphere as vapor. And it traps enormous amounts of infrared radiation in the Earth's atmosphere, preventing everyone from freezing to death at night. But everything in moderation! Since water vapor is emitted from our factories, power stations, and automobiles, there is much more of it in the atmosphere. Elevated vapor levels trap greater amounts of infrared radiation, leading to rising average temperatures.

Elevated CO2 levels also trap infrared radiation, as exemplified by the planet Venus. Its atmosphere is made almost entirely of CO2. The surface temperature is even hotter than Mercury, which is actually closer to the sun. Elevated CO2 levels in Antarctic ice cores also correspond to points in Earth's history when the global average temprature was higher.

CH4 is indeed natural gas, but it is also a greenhouse gas. The agricultural industry, particularly modern cattle ranching for use in meat, is an enormous generator of methane gas.

N2O is indeed known as "laughing gas" and is widely used as an anesthetic. But our automobiles, factories, and power stations emit thousands of tons of it into the atmosphere, where it absorbs the sun's infrared radiation and warms the planet.

O3 is indeed ozone. At high altitudes, ozone protects us from harmful ultraviolet radiation, X-rays, and gamma rays from space. At low altitudes, ozone is an extremely toxic atmospheric pollutant and a greenhouse gas emitted from our automobiles, power stations, and factories. It absorbs infrared radiation from the sun, which raises the temperature of the Earth.

CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) were indeed used as coolants in refrigerators and air conditioners until they were banned (in the early 90s I think). At high altitude, they convert ozone into molecular and atomic oxygen, which do not shield us from the dangerous high-energy electromagnetic radiation from space. They also act as (you guessed it) a greenhouse gas that absorbs infrared radiation, contributing to global climate change.

You forgot H2S and SO2

And so I did. H2S and SO2 are also atmospheric pollutants emitted by our automobiles and industrial activities.

How much has the global temperature risen since 1880? Averaged over all land and ocean surfaces, temperatures warmed roughly 0.85 degrees Celsius (1.53 degrees Fahrenheit) from 1880 to 2012, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Predicting something that is already happening is not really a PREdiction.

People, we're not going to fix global warming with a meme war on imgflip; however, some of you give me plenty to work with! LOL
