Well, I'm a biology student, and I've always taken anthropogenic climate change as being most likely present, based on the data we've collected so far, and worth dealing with, since the costs of doing nothing if it's real outweigh, in my opinion, the costs of doing something if it's not. However, reading some discussions online, I've come to realize that I've never actually read any serious arguments against climate change, and dismissed the ones I saw as ill-informed or politically motivated. Needless to say, that's not exactly a very good attitude to have as a scientist.
As such, I'm looking for well-written papers or articles with a solid scientific foundation that conclude the climate change is most likely not anthropogenic. While I doubt I'll believe them anyways (confirmation bias ahoy!), I can at least try to maintain a properly open mind.
So, anyone have some good papers to recommend?
