Contrarian climate scientist Roy Spencer summed up the contrarian case for a fossil fuel and tobacco-funded think tank. However, it turns out that they have little merit on which to stand. The white paper is a classic example of a Gish Gallop — producing such a large volume of nonsense arguments that refuting all of them is too time-consuming. A great example of how making nonsense arguments undermines his whole point. Fortunately, SkepticalScience.

In the end, he determined they were right: Temperatures really are rising rapidly. The study of the world's surface temperatures by Richard Muller was partially bankrolled by a foundation connected to global warming deniers. He pursued long-held skeptic theories in analyzing the data. He was spurred to action because of "Climategate," a British scandal involving hacked emails of scientists. Yet he found that the land is 1. He said he went even further back, studying readings from Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.
Carbon and Carbon dioxide create global warming when we break carbon bonds. Carbon is what scientist call a social atom; meaning it does not like to be alone. So, when carbon bonds are broken it looks for a new partner to grab onto. As it turns out the most desirable partner is oxygen, because it is such a stable, settled atom making it a perfect partner with carbon. The partnership.
As one of those rare contrarian climate experts, he's often asked to testify before US Congress and interviewed by media outlets that want to present a 'skeptical' or false balance climate narrative. He's also a rather controversial figure, having made remarks about "global warming Nazis" and said ,. In any case, as one of those rare contrarian climate scientists, Spencer is in a good position to present the best arguments against the global warming consensus. Conveniently, he recently did just that on his blog, listing what he considers the "Top Ten Good Skeptical Arguments," throwing in an 11th for good measure. He also conveniently posed each of these arguments as questions; it turns out they're all easy to answer.
