Real Climate has an excellent post: “The lag between temperature and CO2. (Gore’s got it right.).”

The post answers the question, “Doesn’t the relationship between CO2 and temperature in the ice core record show that temperature drives CO2, not the other way round?” This issue is often raised earnestly by those who don’t know the science and raised speciously by those who do (or who ought to).
