The human impact on climate is very small. Termites produce more 
carbon dioxide than do people. Volcanos, over which we have no 
control, can yield really large quantities of "greenhouse" gases.

The small increase in average global temperature from 1970 to 2000 
(about one degree Fahrenheit) is correlated perfectly with increased 
radiant energy from the sun over which we have no control. See attached graph.
