Thanks for a pretty interesting and controversial question.
A group known as the Cooler Heads Coaltion tracks the global warming
debate very closely, and provides frequent updates on scientific
results that challenge the conventional wisdom that global warming is
caused by human activity, or even that global warming is ocurring at

Climate modeler admits to being often wrong
Jun 23, 2004
Two years after beginning a $20 million study of the effects of cirrus
thunderhead clouds on the climate, NASA researchers have discovered
that they play a significant part in determining how much sunlight is
reflected back into space.
Announcement: climate model study

The George C. Marshall Institute has published a pamphlet entitled,
?Climate Models: A Primer,? by William O?Keefe and Jeff Kueter, the
Institute?s President and Executive Director respectively. It may be

Another new paper disputes surface temperature record
Jun 09, 2004
Historical climate data that had previously been thought to exhibit a
slight warming trend has come under fire in another newly published
scientific srticle (see story in the last issue on the McKitrick and
Michaels paper). The United States Historical Climatology Network?s
(USHCN) temperature database, the most widely used and highly
respected database available for regional scale analysis in the U. S.,
has been shown to have significant biases toward higher temperatures
that have apparently been overlooked in years past.
And another new paper challenges temperature data
Jun 09, 2004
And yet another new scientific paper finds other methodological
problems in commonly accepted temperature data. Temperature readings
could be positively influenced by ?heat island? effects created by the
overwhelming proximity of temperature monitoring stations to
New paper disputes surface temperature record
May 28, 2004
In a new article published in Climate Research, Ross McKitrick of the
University of Guelph and Patrick J. Michaels of the University of
Virginia have found, through statistical analysis, that the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's temperature data contains
a net warming bias due to socioeconomic effects that were not removed
properly from the IPCC's records.
As you will see, there are many others to choose from.
