Lord Monckton answers the charges against climate skeptics in Scientific American magazine here.  

In December 2009, Scientific American, once a respected
popular-science journal and now a pulp science-fiction picture comic,
viciously attacked US Senator James Inhofe because he had proclaimed
2009 to be the Year of the Skeptic. By skepticism, he meant ?standing
up and exposing the science, the costs and the hysteria behind global
warming alarmism?.

Venomously, Science Fiction American?s editorial comment continued:
?Within the community of scientists and others concerned about
anthropogenic climate change, those whom Inhofe calls skeptics are more
commonly termed contrarians, naysayers and denialists.? Yah-Boo! This
name-calling marks the depth of unscientific desperation to which the
proponents of the ?global warming? nonsense have now sunk.

…..We shall reproduce each of Scientific American?s seven straw men in
bold face, state the true skeptical argument in italic face, and
discuss the scientific truth in Roman face.
