2 Sceptical climate critique

The alternative view to anthropogenic global warming (AGW) needs to be examined, so the sceptical* climate change science is represented in various sources linked on this page.  

(*Sceptic: a person inclined to question or doubt accepted opinions.  Note: if you doubt the spelling given here, it can also be spelt “skeptic”. The definition is the same.)
No global warming for 17 years

The global warming sceptics point to a 17 year period since the 1990s when there has been no global warming. Supporters of AGW theory in turn claim that the “hiatus” is due to the Pacific Ocean absorbing the heat in one of its natural cycles.

Sceptical climate science summarised in 12 minutes:

Do most scientists accept global warming theory?  Supporters of the theory say yes.  AGW sceptics say no. The global warmists claim that there was a “97% consensus” by scientists on the CO2 theory of global warming is explored by Andrew Montford in a booklet called Fraud, Bias and Public Relations: the 97% ‘consensus’ and its critics. http://www.thegwpf.org/content/uploads/2014/09/Warming-consensus-and-it-critics1.pdf

Scientists against the CO2 theory of global warming. A range of scientists present counter arguments to the theory in a film called The Great Global Warming Swindle   This offers a good explanation of how the entire global warming argument began, in a particular political context and continues in what the presenters claim is a biased and unscientific manner.

Climate and polar bears: are they facing extinction? The emotional appeal of the polar bears losing their habitat in the polar environment has provided some powerful global warming imagery, so we will also examine the views of a polar bear expert:  http://polarbearscience.com/  http://www.thegwpf.org/content/uploads/2014/08/healthy-polarbears.pdf

Still not sure who to believe about climate change?  OK: run your own climate model!  http://www.climateprediction.net/  Is a climate modelling experiment using the home computers of thousands of volunteers. “This allows us to answer important and difficult questions about how climate change is affecting our world now and how it will affect our world in the future.”
