Climate change data
Public Forum Letter

Before you jump on the "climate change" bandwagon, research the Little Ice Age, which lasted from 1205 A.D. until 1850 A.D. Many of the purported effects of climate change are simply the way the climate was before the Little Ice Age, such as growing grapes in Northern Europe, reduction in glacier size, Greenland getting greener, etc. So it may be that instead of some climatic effects being created by humans, the Earth is just returning to its pre-Little Ice Age climate. Before we take drastic measures to fix the problem we better be sure there is a problem and not a normal change in the Earth's climate.

Google "climate change doubts" and you will find people like environmental scientist David W. Schnare of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, who said he was skeptical of climate change because "conclusions about the cause of the apparent warming stand on the shoulders of incredibly uncertain data and models. ... As a policy matter, one has to be less willing to take extreme actions when data are highly uncertain." There is far from "scientific consensus" on climate change.
