So if the models are so hopelessly riddled with errors and uncertainty that an anthropogenic radiative forcing signal cannot be distinguished from noise, or if the total magnitude of the warming attributed to humans is one-tenth to one-hundredth of the error or uncertainty ranges, why are those who dare question the degree to which humans affect the Earth’s climate branded as “deniers” of science?

"We're not scared anymore Mr Gore." An inspired cartoon story from 2008.
You can get your copy here: http://www.users.on.net/~kerryandmarc/not%20scared%20anymore%20Mr%20Gore%20EE.pdf
The story shows Mr Gore being welcomed to a classroom, making some of his points, with each of them being refuted by the children. Eventually, Mr Gore flees.
Some background on the author:
'Marc Hendrickx has worked as a geologist since completing a BSc (Hons) at Latrobe University, Australia in 1993. His work has included making geological maps for government geological surveys in the Victorian Alps, the deserts of central Australia and in the dry plains of Western New South Wales. Since 2001 he has worked as an engineering geologist specialising in transport infrastructure. At the time of writing he was undertaking a PhD at Macquarie University. As a geologist Marc sees the effects of natural climate change written into the rock record every time he steps onto an outcrop. He doesn’t need a computer model to tell him the climate’s changing. The path to a sustainable future will not be born from fear. Open your eyes and set yourself free.'
