World crop production is twice population rate; Canadian forest fires have greatly decreased in number since 1990, and bear no relation to NASA temperatures or CO2; coastal land subsidence from natural isostasy raises sea level; impervious surfaces in the urban built-environment increase flooding; cities heat up storm water and degrade surface waters. Many natural and man-made factors affect our environment, on Earth and in our open solar system, not just carbon emissions.
