Climate Science - Is it currently designed to answer questions? http://tallbloke.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/ejv2id9_sm2008_lindzen.pdf This is an incredibly lucid and well supported paper on the topic of where climate science stands today and how it got to this point. It is a long read (33 pages) but provides a valuable window into the workings of the various agencies and organizations that make up what we know as climate science. There is some particularly interesting insight into the workings of the various academies that warmists, in particular, like to quote when claiming that "nearly all" scientists believe that climate change is caused by CO2 and mankind is responsible. The first few sentences of the abstract give the reader a good indication of what the paper is about and the topics to be explored.
