Re: “Greg Fishel was once a Limbaugh-loving climate skeptic. Now he’s fighting global warming.

This article doesnt say why Greg Fishel now is convinced that there is man-made global warming going on.
On wral's site there is an article where he says the fact of warming in the troposphere vs. cooling in the stratosphere means the Sun can be ruled out as the cause of of the supposed warming.
That was the argument that he presented as the strongest evidence of man-made , CO2-based global warming

I found this article ...

saying :
-The stratosphere cooling that occurred up until the 90s was due to falling Ozone level , due to increased CFCs. ...which were then banned in 1996 thankfully.

"This action to restore ozone shows a remarkable correlation with recent stratospheric temperatures. Whereas cooling in the stratosphere was continually evident from 1960-1996, and tracked closely with falling ozone levels, temperatures have subsequently leveled off. Specifically, net temperatures in the stratosphere have remained essentially unchanged since the late 1990s.

"One has to wonder why the IPCC has chosen to deny solar variability on the basis of cooling stratospheric temperatures. The evidence seems fairly clear that a decline in stratospheric temperatures was driven by declining ozone, a factor wholly unrelated to solar variability"

So the increased activity of the Sun from 1960-1996 explains the troposphere (and the surface) temperature increase.
And the Sun activity has been level ever since...hence the pause in temperature.
