Skeptics to host alternative climate meeting in Paris

The United Nations isn't the only group hosting a climate change conference in Paris next week.

On the conference website, a list of 10 questions are posed to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change and its supporters, asking them to produce "observational evidence" on manmade climate change-related issues including sea level rise, glacier retreat and increased severity in hurricanes and other extreme weather events.
