@Sven Groot:When you did you research, did you go to SkepticalScience ? because that is a propaganda website .
No, I read actual scientific papers, and checked claims from both sides. I then traced claims back to their source as much as I could. I found that there was overwhelming scientific evidence to support climate change, and that man is responsible for it. The only issue up for debate is how much effect we've had, not if we've had any.
I found that with many of the largest opponents of climate change, like Monkton, there is a very large discrepancy between what they are trying to say and what the sources they are using were trying to say, or that they combine data from different sources in ways that are not valid. They either don't understand the sources they are reading, didn't read them thoroughly, or are deliberately misrepresenting them.
Not that that doesn't happen on both sides, mind you. I just haven't found a single person arguing wholly against climate change that wasn't doing so, and Monkton is probably one of the worst offenders from what I remember. The fact that you hold him in such high regard tells me that you have not done any in-depth research into how he arrived at his claims.
Also, when you did your research, did you go to WattsUpWithThat? Because that is a propaganda website.
(See how effective such a statement is at arguing against someone's position? Yep, it's not, at all.)
