A new paper (Lightfoot, 2020) shows that the claims (a) CO2 and air temperature go up and down together, (b) CO2 and water vapor go up and down together, and (c) warming by water vapor can be added to that of CO2 to give enhanced warming are all not observed to occur in the real world.

Morano: "What they're trying to do, you saw Biden allude to it there with 'Build Back Better.' They're trying to essentially use the COVID lockdown model for the climate emergency model. And they are going to go from COVID lockdowns to climate lockdowns."
"Senator Merkley (D-OR) came out today and is urging a President Joe Biden to declare a national climate emergency which would give him emergency powers that he could bypass democracy, much in the same way that blue-state governors have already done with the COVID lockdowns," Morano said.
New Study: Gebbie, 2021: Annual Review of Marine Science - "Combining Modern and Paleoceanographic Perspectives on Ocean Heat Uptake
Annual Review of Marine Science" - Vol. 13:- (Volume publication date January 2021):
Excerpts: "To detect the effects of anthropogenic forcing, it would require energy budget imbalance measurement precision of 0.1 W/m² at the top of the atmosphere (TOA). Uncertainty in the forcing changes affecting climate are ±4 W/m², meaning that uncertainty is about 80 times greater than an anthropogenic signal detection." ...
"Past changes in global ocean heat content, such as the last deglaciation, have been 20 times larger than modern changes."
Paul Homewood rebuts: "Since 2000, the trend in the number of disasters has actually been downwards, clearly debunking any pretence that weather is getting worse because of global warming. The report even specifically accepts this:
...Put simply, many more disasters are recorded nowadays because of better reporting systems. But this does not mean more are actually occurring."
The row was triggered by the new report on “Human Cost of Disasters”. The report announced a “staggering rise in climate-related disasters over the last twenty years”. However, the same report contains a graph showing that the number of climate-related disasters has actually decreased by 15 percent since 2000. ...
“This is a huge, embarrassing blunder,” said Benny Peiser, director of the Global Warming Policy Forum, a British think tank. “The United Nations must immediately withdraw this report and apologise for misleading the public.” Roger Pielke Jr, a renowned American scientist in the field of natural disasters – and anything but climate denier – also regrets the sharp position by the UNDRR. In an e-mail to De Telegraaf he says that the authors have drawn “flawed conclusions”
Sky News contributor & Former Aussie Senator Cory Bernardi: “Now is the historical moment of time not only to fight the … virus but to shape the system ... for the post-corona era,” Mr. Schwab said. "(Mr. Schwab) admits that COVID is the new excuse to usher in the Green New Deal that climate alarmists, profiteers, and big government have been pushing for years," Mr. Bernardi said. “Think about it, the global response to COVID has been a green socialist's dream."
“After decades of peddling climate change lies and propaganda to force government by the elites, the socialists have used a media-induced hysteria over public health as their latest weapon of economic destruction.”
WWF International: "Transformative change is urgently needed in our productive sectors, including our food systems, forestry, fisheries, infrastructure and extractives, and in the finance sector. These transformations need to happen fast if we are to limit risks of higher restoration costs and irreversible damage, including new pandemics and species extinction. We must transform our food systems so that enough healthy and nutritious food is produced for all, within planetary boundaries."
