The Increase in CO2/Heat is getting steeper

The link between co2 emissions and warming is indisputable. 
Scientists have understood this for almost 200 years. 

Graph of Mean temperatures from 1880 to present.

Scientists have scientifically known for nearly 200 years
that a trace gas like atmospheric carbon dioxide absorbs heat:

President Lyndon Johnson spoke directly to Congress on the topic on February 8, 1965, in his speech ‘Special Message to the Congress on Conservation and Restoration of Natural Beauty’:
“Air pollution is no longer confined to isolated places. This generation has altered the composition of the atmosphere on a global scale through radioactive materials and a steady increase in carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels.”
