This review is pure science denial. It only pushes one side of the debate and uses the same cherry picked strawman arguments that have routinely poisoned the debate rather than enhance it.

Since the author is unable to write a balanced article, I will add some info to create a balance and will leave the readers to investigate themselves and hopefully show that the science isn't settled for the benefit of improving scientific methods towards climate science, as well as, researching the political and monetary motivations behind some of the spin.

The site that calls itself "skeptical" is anything but. They have even edited past articles to cover their own shortcomings
