Global warming denial on Facebook

longer text

So, I’m hanging out on Facebook today, and an old next-door dorm buddy posted a link to a crazy global-warming-is-a-hoax WSJ article. I replied, and things got wacky. I definitely could have done a better job staying away from the ad hominem attacks, but it’s pretty tough when 95% of the people left arguing against global warming (a) have no credentials, (b) are funded by Exxon and/or (c) are deceptive at best, fraudulent at worst.

I’ve cleaned up the transcript a little and tried to remove personally identifying info. Aside from that, it’s as-is. I’ll let you know if we continue the discussion. Your thoughts are welcome!
