Discussions of the content of this thread go in the General Climate Change Article Room. If there are any problems with the posts below (or even if you feel there's a problem), place your concerns there and I will review them. This is a measure to make sure no partisan bickering arises in this thread, as well as to make sure decidedly unscientific publications making statements on the phenomenon (e.g. The Guardian, Huffington Post, Salon, Daily Mail, Breitbart, radical AGW believer and denier blogs, etc.) do not filter in and muddy the whole meaning of this hub.
Said 30,000 scientific papers can be found behind these many following links:

Sea Ice Melting
Sea level rise
Antarctic gains ice, sea ice declines
No scientific body of national or international standing rejected the findings of human-induced effects on climate change
Solar Minimum; the explanation that the sun is causing warming is wholly wrong
NOAA Climate Extremes Index

"Global Warming is Al Gore's Scam"
Gore was born in the 1890s?
"Global Cooling in the '70s"
Yes, by one book.
Also, when scientists predicted an ice age, they were talking about 10,000 years from now.
The Myth of the 1970s Global Cooling Scientific Consensus
"There was no scientific consensus in the 1970s that the Earth was headed into an
imminent ice age. Indeed, the possibility of anthropogenic warming dominated
the peer-reviewed literature even then."
"It snowed today"
"In fact, no scientist believes in climate change"
"Most papers say it's not happening"
13,950 vs 24?
"Skeptics driven by the logic of common, every day Americans, not rich elites or the oil industry"
Common denier trick: you can cherry pick the hottest year earlier in recent decades (1998, when a strong el nino meant a hot year) and compare it to the coolest year in recent decades (2008, when a strong la nina meant a cool year)
"Stopped warming in 1998"
"Liberal lefties use newspeak to hide their agenda; global warming becomes climate change"
It was Frank Lutz, the famous GOP pollster/operative, who in 2003 championed the use of "climate change" rather than global warming, because it sounds so much gentler and non-threatening. It's was the softest term available for catastrophic climate disruption (the more accurate term). "We" didn't change it. You speak of trust. Who deserves the trust of average people? The pollsters, paid liars, PR agents, front groups, and shills? Frank Lutz wrote: "It’s time for us to start talking about “climate change” instead of global warming and “conservation” instead of preservation. 1) “Climate change” is less frightening than “global warming”. As one focus group participant noted, climate change “sounds like you’re going from Pittsburgh to Fort Lauderdale.” While global warming has catastrophic connotations attached to it, climate change suggests a more controllable and less emotional challenge."
