This "opposing view" is from the Guardian and concerns what we so called "sceptics" want, it's a pity the Guardian did not ask for a "denier" to come forward and inform their readers exactly what we want, I guess they know best!
Climate sceptics say they want science free of politics, yet their campaigning frames discussion.
Climate change science has had a turbulent year. The media and blogosphere feeding-frenzy after the release of researchers' emails, dubbed "climategate", and the revelation of an embarrassing error in an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, unnerved many. Yet, as official investigations concluded that there is no conspiracy by researchers, the published results are robust, and the IPCC sometimes struggles because it employs only a handful of people, controversy has receded. So, responses to the first major post-climategate science story, that a weaker sun may actually warm the Earth's surface, the opposite of what has been accepted until now, can help us understand the legacy of the attacks on climate science
For scientists, it is business as usual. Far from the often alleged conspiracy that scientists ignore the sun and focus only on carbon dioxide in relation to Earth's temperature, the new results use satellite data to show that in the current solar cycle, declining activity is unexpectedly coupled with an increase in radiation in the visible wavelength, which warms the Earth. Furthermore, despite the paucity of data – only three years' worth from an 11-year solar cycle – this radical challenge to convention was published in the elite journal Nature, because science thrives on novelty and careers are made by being the first with an idea that survives scrutiny. This neatly illustrates why no scientist would hide controversial data.
For the media it is back to business as usual too. The broadsheets and BBC website published careful and informative pieces. The Mail and Express badly mangled the story, with the former running the headline Global warming theory in chaos, even though the lead scientist, Prof Joannah Haigh, explained that the limited impact of solar cycles on Earth's temperature means any reversal of its effects does not put in doubt the climate impacts of carbon dioxide.
