William D. Nordhaus of The New York Review of Books takes a moment to look at all the points raised by global warming skeptics and presents a sobering fact-filled and backed up by data explanation in order to correct their "attempt to discredit scientists and scientific research on climate change."

[...] one of the difficulties I found in examining the views of climate skeptics is that they are scattered widely in blogs, talks, and pamphlets. Then, I saw an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal of January 27, 2012, by a group of sixteen scientists, entitled "No Need to Panic About Global Warming." This is useful because it contains many of the standard criticisms in a succinct statement. The basic message of the article is that the globe is not warming, that dissident voices are being suppressed, and that delaying policies to slow climate change for fifty years will have no serious economic or environment consequences.
