Fraudulent science [?]

PolitickerNJ has text from a press release:

Earlier this year, John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, stated that manmade global warming is "the greatest scam in history," adding, "I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a scam." Coleman said the theory of global warming is based on fraudulent science.

"New Jersey’s tax and regulatory climate is already chasing jobs from this state left and right and these new regulations will make matters worse," Michael Doherty said. "Rather than conforming our policies to questionable scientific theories, we should be looking at the concrete economic indicators that show our state’s economy is in trouble. And we should be taking steps to help people who are losing jobs and being forced out of their homes by this state’s anti-economic growth agenda – not making matters worse."

If you have already made up your mind 101% about the AGW debate (one way or the other) there is no point in talking further because you've picked your story, you're going to stick with it, and you're not going to be confused by any additional facts.

Then again, if you do all of the above, you're not a "scientist".

"Science" requires the posing of a falsifiable hypothesis. Once a single example is presented where the hypothesis doesn't hold, the hypothesis must be discarded.

So let's start with the following "fair and balanced" hypothesis:

Proposed: Anthropogenic Global Warming is entirely (100%) a hoax and a scam and there is not one shred of scientific data indicating otherwise, and besides, anyone who is willing to contemplate even a 1% possibility of AGW being true is unAmerican.

As for the skeptics' argument about sunspots, satellite data shows solar irradiance to be averaging at 1.36 kW/m^2 for the last 40 years. In other words, no change irrespective of sunspot activity.
