Has the global warming debate been settled?

It is clear that the issue of anthropogenic global warming is still not fully accepted by a wide part of the general public and a select few academics. In light of the available data on global warming, is it safe to declare the debate settled or are there reasons to be intelligently sceptical?

The question is not so much whether we should be having a debate about specific aspects of global warming, that much is obvious, but whether we can factually speak of anthropogenic global warming.
