Do you think that when it comes to the increase in CO2 and temperature over the course of the last century, correlation equals causation?

I do. There could possibly be other drivers behind the warming trend but the thermal stratification of the atmosphere can tell us a few things. For one, while the troposphere is getting warmer the stratosphere is getting cooler. This would be expected from a greenhouse effect because CO2 in the troposphere would trap IR emitted from the Earths' surface thus heating it up but this radiation wouldn't reach the stratosphere hence it gets cooler. If other causes (say solar activity) were causing it, the stratosphere would be getting warmer faster than the troposphere because it's getting more direct rays from the sun. #ThreeArrows
