We know that temperatures are rising. We have warming. Why do the skeptics insist that we have cooling?

Rising from when? Last year? Last week?
How much? How much in what time period?
Records show the earth cooled before the current period. It was called the Little Ice Age. Before that, we had the Medieval warming period.
A few hot summers is not a trend in geologic terms. 1/10th degree a decade is not significant.

The "best answer" is by one of the sock puppet accounts of The Yahoo Joker. He changed the name of that account twice yesterday, from Hannah Texarkana to Gail to Britney and now back to Hannah Texarkana.

Skeptics insist that we have cooling because doing something about global warming and acknowledging that temperatures are rising harms businesses. Countries will have to come up with emission reduction targets. These countries which are major emitters of carbon dioxide such as China, US, India they must reduce the amount of fossil fuels the use which reduces the amount of goods they can produce thus harming their economy and GDP.

They are not skeptics. Skeptics questionnclaims that Earth is cooling.

It’s clear global warming/climate change is real. It’s equally clear the > current < warming cycle has been going on since the last ice age and that’s why the Sahara was grassland 10,000 years ago but is desert today + has been turning into desert for millennia. The fact the current warming trend started long before there was any industry and when there were hardly any people is good evidence humans are not the cause. It also means humans are not the solution.
The Earth goes through constant climate change cycles and has done so throughout its history. The exact mechanism is not completely understood but appears to be related to solar activity and the axial tilt of the Earth as it orbits the sun - not human activity. Note that the Earth is apparently at the end of the current warming cycle and should begin cooling soon (“soon” in geological terms).
All of the carbon tax/carbon offset BS is just robbery or extortion disguised as science.
Countries like China and India LOVE the idea of carbon taxes/carbon offsets – but only when they can pretend to be “undeveloped”. They do pretend, despite both being horrific polluters of > every < type. They, the global Left, and countries like North Korea & Zimbabwe all love the idea of carbon taxes/carbon offsets.
The Left loves the idea because they are dedicated to destroying the West in general and the USA in particular. Getting the developed world to wreck its own industrial base is something they want. Having the West simultaneously give free guilt-money to countries like China, India, North Korea, and Zimbabwe would just make it better.
Unfortunately, scientific research has been compromised by the politics of the subject. The academic community leans far to the Left, so researchers who “prove” human-caused global warming (AGW) are rewarded with more grants, but researchers who “don’t prove” AGW find they are cut off from research funding (= censorship by the Left).
The politics of the issue are a problem because we really do need to understand how the Earth works so we can anticipate, predict, and adjust. our environment, and countries like China & India should not get a free ride (like they get under the Paris Accord).

We don't have warming, we have scientific fraud. Political scientists also said that Trump would lose.

“We” - whom you don’t define - have cooling where we have cooling, and warming where we have warming.
We don’t have coolong where there is snow, do we?
