There simply isn't enough of it to cause the kind of changes that being touted. That's simple, hard science. It's not computer modeled projections that can be manipulated to get results, it's a simple fact obtained by measuring the amount of atmosphere we have, the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere and the amount of impact that CO2 has on the greenhouse effect. All of these are well known and documented pieces of information and the net effect of anthropogenic CO2 is less than the normal annual variation in CO2 levels. In other words, we don't produce enough CO2 to make a change that can be measured since the amount of CO2 we produce is less than the natural variation in CO2 levels.

Total atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) -- both man-made and natural-- is only about 3.62% of the overall greenhouse effect
0.117% of the greenhouse effect is due to atmospheric CO2 from human activity
Water vapor, responsible for 95% of Earth's greenhouse effect, is 99.999% natural (some argue, 100%). Even if we wanted to we can do nothing to change this.

Anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 contributions cause only about 0.117% of Earth's greenhouse effect, (factoring in water vapor). This is insignificant!

Adding up all anthropogenic greenhouse sources, the total human contribution to the greenhouse effect is around 0.28% (factoring in water vapor).
