Global Warming and Climate Change skepticism examined

Global Warming and Climate Change skepticism examined
Scientific skepticism is healthy. Scientists should always challenge themselves to improve their understanding. Yet this isn't what happens with climate change denial. Skeptics vigorously criticise any evidence that supports man-made global warming and yet embrace any argument, op-ed, blog or study that purports to refute global warming. This website gets skeptical about global warming skepticism. Do their arguments have any scientific basis?

Popular 1350+ Peer-Reviewed Papers Supporting Skeptic Arguments Against ACC/AGW Alarmism f "A tour de force list of scientific papers..." - Robert M. Carter, Ph.D. Environmental Scientist "Wow, the list is pretty impressive ...It's Oreskes done right." - Luboš Motl, Ph.D. Religious and Scientific Faith My perspective on the world is agnostic, secular and scientific. From that perspective, I used to think that faith, as the belief in things unseen, only concerns religions. Religions require many beliefs in unseen things. We need faith in order to have beliefs about them, because there is no way of knowing the truth of statements about supernatural or paranormal entities. We cannot reliably detect supernatural beings by ordinary sensory or generally empirical means. “Reliably” is the key term, since there is no lack of anecdotal testimony.

NOAA: Warmest May, spring, and Jan-May on record « Climate Progr By Joe Romm on June 15, 2010 at 5:03 pm "NOAA: Warmest May, spring, and Jan-May on record" NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center has published its monthly “State of the Climate Report.” The combined global land and ocean surface temperature was the warmest on record for May, March-May (Northern Hemisphere spring-Southern Hemisphere autumn), and the period January-May.

In the 70s, they said there'd be an Ice Age Climate LiteracyAbout Teaching Climate Literacy Climate information can be used to reduce vulnerabilities or enhance the resilience of communities and ecosystems affected by climate change. Continuing to improve scientific understanding of the climate system and the quality of reports to policy and decision-makers is crucial.

Global Warming Skeptics & Climate Change Science Editor's Note: This is the text of the letter sent by 49 former NASA employees to the agency asking it to stay out of what they see as a politicized and unsubstantiated field — human-caused global warming. It was originally posted on the blog Watts Up With That? A NASA spokesman confirmed that the agency received the letter on Tuesday (April 11). [Read the full story about the letter] March 28, 2012 The Biocentric Universe Theory: Life Creates Time, Space, and the Cosmos Itself At the moment there are only four explanations for this mystery. The first two give us little to work with from a scientific perspective. One is simply to argue for incredible coincidence.

Disputing the ‘consensus’ on global warming « Climate Progress By Joe Romm on June 16, 2010 at 3:49 pm "Disputing the ‘consensus’ on global warming" Science is in many ways the opposite of decision by consensus. I have never liked the use of the word “consensus” as it is typically applied in the climate arena. Scientists don’t really have a ‘consensus’ so much as they have an ‘understanding‘ of climate science. I wrote an article on this subject in 2008, “The cold truth about climate change: [Disinformers] continue to insist there’s no consensus on global warming.
