The only way to contradict the AGW camp is to measure the effects by using metrics derived from sound science.
To this effect the UN devised metrics, among other indicators for sustainable development and vulnerability indices.
A subset of these for measuring climate change is long overdue and would put a lot of bad science out the door by presenting a country by country, region by region, very large marine ecosystem by very large marine ecosystem evaluation based on numerical values of indicators and indices.
The idea behind Human Dimensions (www.hd.gov) to factor SocMon factors as well.
Numbers did the show and tell in the "An Inconvenient Truth" movie, and numbers will do again in the great public debate.
