How to talk to a global warming skeptic

An inadvertent companion piece to Suzoz’ earlier find from New Scientist (A guide to the Perplexed on Climate Change), from Gristmill comes How to Talk to a Global Warming Skeptic.

a complete listing of the articles in “How to Talk to a Climate Skeptic,” a series by Coby Beck containing responses to the most common skeptical arguments on global warming. There are four separate taxonomies; arguments are divided by:

* Stages of Denial,
* Scientific Topics,
* Types of Argument, and
* Levels of Sophistication.


Via Ezra Klein. Amanda Marcotte feels the term “skeptic” is misused when talking about a cult of denialism.

  1. There are some of us that actually do a little research and not just listen to washed up politicians. Any 15 year old can do it.

  2. What about those of us who’ve been doing a little research on global warming since Al Gore was Vice President?
    What about those of us who don’t actually care so much what Al Gore says as what climatologists and other physical scientists say about our climate patterns?
