While the climate science community has been quite resolute in its stance that global warming has been accentuated by human activity in the post-industrial era – the so-called Anthropocene – one could be forgiven for thinking that the jury is still out the way this subject (anthropogenic global warming or AGW) is presented in the popular media.

The notion that there is some controversy over human-induced climate change flies in the face of the received wisdom, with over 97% of climate scientists endorsing the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.
