Global warming denial refutation
|Global Warming portal|
Due largely to the efforts of very powerful entities with an interest in maintaining the status quo in energy-production, i.e. the oil industry, there has been an ongoing and well-funded media campaign to discredit the idea of global warming and its implications. This has led to both a large number of easily-refutable objections being widely circulated and to many of the same long-refuted arguments being brought up again and again.
The definitive collection of responses so far appears to be Coby Beck's "How to Talk to a Global Warming Skeptic", linked in the Reference section below.
