The Great Global Warming Hoax: Who Is To Blame?

Skeptic Arguments What the Science Says
"It cooled mid-century" Mid-century cooling involved aerosols and is irrelevant for recent global warming.
"It hasn't warmed since 1998"

Every part of the Earth's climate system has continued warming since 1998, with 2015 shattering temperature records.

"Models are unreliable" Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.
"It's cooling" The last decade 2000-2009 was the hottest on record.
"There's no correlation between CO2 and temperature" There is long-term correlation between CO2 and global temperature; other effects are short-term.
