I'm not sure about this "Global Warming Policy Foundation" group. When I searched on it, I was finding things along the lines of:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/oct/21/lord-lawso...

Many parts of the media now feel obliged to include the views of Lawson and other representatives of the foundation in reports about climate change issues in order to "balance" the statements made by mainstream researchers and policymakers.

I'd love to be believe that gw is a bunch of hogwash since it would mean I could become complacent again, but I'm not at all sure I wouldn't be giving in to my own version of confirmation bias were I to do so.
