Long time readers will know how fond I am of the Index to Creationist Claims, a long list of common creationist arguments linked to short, pithy rebuttals with references. Now the gang at Gristmill have done the same thing for climate change, with a How to Talk to a Climate Skeptic page containing a list of common global warming denialists claims linked to blog entries that address the criticism. This should be handy!

One weird thing, though, is that since the answers are blog entries, people can actually comment on them…and of course, the denialists are out in force. It’s useful to see that the accusations aren’t straw men at all, because there are people actively arguing them right there.

    I can’t believe that someone like that is the head of a supposedly scientific administration.

    That’s because you still belong to the reality-based community. “But we’re an empire now. We make our own reality.”
