PEER-REVIEWED PAPERS
Over 800 peer-reviewed papers supporting skepticism of "Man-Made" Global Warming (AGW) Alarm

LEARN REAL CLIMATE SCIENCE
Climate For You (Prof Ole Humlum) - a beautiful website to learn real Climate Science
Global Warming Science - a beautiful source for the real Climate Science, tackling the issues misrepresented by AGW
Atmospheric CO2 and Global Warming (Jaworowski & Segalstad) - top scientists, brilliant science on the key issues

SKEPTIC INFO PORTALS
ICECAP - news from all skeptic sources, plus library with prime websites and some important articles/papers
Global Warming Science - ALSO a brilliant portal for links to good skeptics' websites and good books published

NEUTRAL INFO SOURCE
Climate Debate Daily Headlines, balanced exactly between Consensus and Skeptics, + excellent long list of websites

"OFFICIAL SCIENCE" (AGW) "ANSWERS TO SKEPTICS" - these are included because
- skeptics need to know what the "consensus" believes and argues, before they can possibly claim to know better
- skeptics need to know of "straw man" arguments commonly used by "consensus" to prove skeptics are mistaken

SKEPTIC REPLIES SPECIFICALLY TO AGW "ANSWERS TO SCEPTICS"
Climate Skeptic Layman's Guide chapter 9 replies to each of New Scientists' 20 "answers to skeptics"

Now Join the Debate

AGW-MANAGED, NAME-CALLING HAPPENS
RealClimate - prime pro-AGW blog - links only to other pro-CAGW blogs - most skeptic posts get rejected

AGW-MANAGED BUT MORE COURTEOUS & OPEN TO DEBATE
Skeptical Science The best of consensus-managed open debate - which unfortunately does not say much
How to talk to a Climate Skeptic Open to courteous comments from all sides and contain some interesting dialogue, despite the dismissive titles

SKEPTIC-MANAGED, AND VERY OPEN TO DEBATE, NAME-CALLING CHECKED
WattsUpWithThat - prime meeting-place for skeptics - links to blogs both pro and anti - all courteous relevant posts are accepted, AGW or skeptic

SKEPTIC-MANAGED, COURTEOUS, AND OPEN TO ONLINE SCIENCE (STATISTICS)
Climate Audit - first-class blog, science actually happens here - links to blogs both pro and anti

Note that there is rather more openness, pursuit of science, and courtesy on the sceptics' blogs than can be found on the consensus blogs, in general. Of course there are exceptions and nobody is perfect. But the science is what we need.

Be aware too that although the consensus are quick to cry "oil-funded!" to skeptics, more often the reverse is the case, namely that skeptics cannot get funding at all, and certainly not from oil companies who don't want their name tarred any further; moreover, there is seldom mention of oil or other big businesses that are known funders of the "consensus"; often, name-calling simply hides the lack of investigation of the science itself.

AGW relating to Skeptics

Consensus websites explain climate science and "debunk the skeptics"

* BBC asks What's a Sceptic? ----> questionnaire, "belief", divergence, no science quoted
* BBC Climate scepticism - the Top Ten compiled with advice from Fred Singer & Gavin Schmidt
* Coby Beck at Gristmill: How to answer a Climate Change Skeptic
* Skeptical Science: 52 skeptics' arguments with its own Top Ten
* UK Meteorological Office:Climate Change Myths
* New Scientist: Climate Change: A guide for the perplexed (27 issues)
* Royal Society: Climate Change controversies
* RealClimate: Responses to common contrarian arguments - Index of their posts
* Natural Environment Research Council (UK): Summary of the debate
* Union of Concerned Scientists - Past, Present, and Future Temperatures: the Hockeystick FAQ

Gristmill at least has open debate on the threads; but AGW predominates, not surprisingly when it lists topics by:-

Stages of Denial There's Nothing Happening, We Don't Know Why it's Happening, Climate Change is Natural / Not Bad / Can't Be Stopped
Scientific Topics Temp, Atmosphere, Extreme Events, Cryosphere, Oceans, Modelling, Climate Forcings, Palaeo-Climate, Scientific Process
Types of Argument Uninformed, Misinformed, Cherry Picking, Urban Myths, FUD (Fear, Uncertainty & Doubt) Non-scientific, Crackpottery
Levels of Sophistication Silly, Naive, Specious, Scientific.

Skeptical Science - a rare AGW site with some good debate, with input from both sides; "contents" list:-
