There are many writers of blogs who are participating in the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (cagw) debate on the skeptics’ side, but it is interesting to come across a play, The Heretic, by Richard Bean with a script incorporating arguments critical of the cagw alarmists’ position.
The Heretic opened at the Royal Court Theater on February 4, 2011 and won the 2011 Evening Standard Best New Play award. The Heretic will soon be playing in Melbourne according to the Bishop Hill website.
When familiar criticisms of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and discussion about the lack of consideration of the Little Ice Age in the creation of the hockey stick graph can be found in a play, it is apparent that assertions that the debate over global warming is over do not ring true.
There is an article entitled “The Heretic, Royal Court, review” by Charles Spencer in The Telegraph, February 11, 2011.
One format in which the script of The Heretic is currently available is in a Kindle edition.
For more about catastrophic anthropogenic global warming, please be sure to see Mapping the Debate – Josh 165 in the Bishop Hill website.
The IPCC ship has apparently hit an iceberg in the Josh 165 cartoon. Note that the cartoon can be clicked for better visibility.

A letter written by Andrew Glikson that is critical of The Heretic can be read here on the Bishop Hill website.
A PDF prepared by Joanne Nova of a climate debate in 2010 between her and Andrew Glikson is available here.
