It's the Sun!
This is a common myth. It sounds sort of logical if you don't understand the contexts involved. The fact is that we receive most of our heat energy from the sun and a little bit from the heat stored in the earths core. But does that mean this global warming event is caused by the sun? No. Here's why:

Global Warming is Only Part Human Caused
This is an interesting myth because it is very ambiguous. Which part? What percentage? How much warming is human caused v. natural cycle? The problem is it's part true, and part not true, so context is needed. One needs to understand the difference between natural variation and the new path that the climate is on.

The Hockey Stick Controversy
Many denialists have claimed that the Hockey stick was wrong and they can prove it because a congressional subcommittee said it was wrong. Is there anyone on the planet that doesn't think a congressional subcommittee can be wrong? Nevertheless, here we show, and reference, the facts regarding 'The Hockey Stick' and the argument.

Loehle Temperature Reconstruction
The Loehle Temperature Reconstruction is a narrowly scoped loosely constructed picture that due to its limitations, is deceptive in its depiction of past climate. When placed in context of more strongly validated science it's weaknesses become more obvious. In that sense, one may go as far as to say the paper, in and of itself, is scientifically inappropriate with regard to what it is claimed to represent.

Rich document C source code header The Cosmos Myth
Did S. Fred Singer trick Revelle into an association to achieve an agenda? When the sequence of events is examined, the intentions seem to implicate his agenda. "The energy companies reportedly began taking steps to prevent the public from believing that humans are warming the planet" ... "as early as the 1980's". It looks like even then, Singer was working with Michaels, Balling, Ellsaesser and Lindzen.

Global Warming Stopped in 1998
Global warming denialists like to say that global warming stopped in 1998. Is it true? No. The warming trend continues. To understand this, one needs to understand that there is a difference between weather and climate. Weather is short term and climate is long term. The long term trend is clear. We are continuing to warm.

Global Cooling Myth in the 70's
Many claim that in the 1970's all scientists believed the earth was cooling. Factual examination of the controversial report reveals that there was a consensus. The consensus was we don't know enough yet. The confirmation of the Milankovitch cycles indicated that we were to begin a cooling phase, the introduction of industrial greenhouse gases indicated we could interrupt the natural cycle. More study was needed.

A Real Climate Assessment
Scientists dedicated to science. No exaggerations. No hype. Theses scientists work in the top science organizations around the world. They look at the arguments, the data, and the models and give an honest reasoned assessment of what we know, and what we need to learn.

Myths vs. Facts: Global Warming
Myths vs. Facts in Global Warming: This news and analysis section addresses substance of arguments such as "global warming is a hoax", "global warming is a fiction", "global warming is created to make money for Al Gore". The main fallacy noted is that most arguments are facts out of context while others are simply false representations. When the facts pertaining to the arguments are viewed in context relevance becomes obvious. The data clearly indicates global warming is happening and is human caused. At this time in the natural cycle Earth should be slightly cooling on trend, leading into what would have been the next ice age. Instead Earth is warming. There is no valid evidence that can prove otherwise. False representations or facts out of context are not a proof of any kind, they are merely incorrect.

Ocean Cooling
Did the ocean actually start cooling and global warming stop? The data showed that the Atlantic had gone cold. But the scientist that was looking at the data knew that the inertia of the system should not allow such a thing to happen. But there it was... in the data. Knowing the models and the forces involved he did some more investigating and found something... he looked at his wife and said "Oh, no,". What's wrong?" his wife asked? He replied, "I think ocean cooling isn't real."
