 Skeptics' Arguments

Every single skeptics' argument listed here has a place in the skeptics' arsenal of evidence - IF PROPERLY STATED - and if space is given to answer misunderstandings and "strawman" misrepresentations and half-truths. As the arguments stand, they can be easily "refuted" or shown as "irrelevant".

It's the sun
Climate's changed before
There is no consensus
It's cooling
Surface temp is unreliable
Models are unreliable
Ice age predicted in the 70s
We're heading into an ice age
Al Gore got it wrong
CO2 lags temperature
