Climate Hustle

Lowest Sunspot Activity Since 1900 Tied to Temperature Drop Over the Past Two Years?

Skeptic Arguments What the Science Says
"Models are unreliable"

Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.

"It's the sun"

In the last 35 years of global warming, sun and climate have been going in opposite directions

"Climate's changed before" Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing.
"It's cooling" The last decade 2000-2009 was the hottest on record.
"It's freaking cold!" A local cold day has nothing to do with the long-term trend of increasing global temperatures.
