What's the talk about?

From natural cycles to global conspiracies, the climate change ?sceptic? uses many arguments to challenge the scientific consensus on climate change.  But how well do these arguments stand up and do these people merit the label of skeptics?  In this talk we?ll examine some of the most common arguments and assess the level of ?scepticism? at work.

Andrew is a weather and climate researcher at the University of Manchester.  His work focuses on European extreme events and Antarctic climate change.  He runs the North-West branch of the Royal Meteorological Society and often comments on weather and climate issues in the media.
