I haven’t been posting very often recently, and one reason is that I’ve been busy writing for another climate blog called Skeptical Science which, unlike mine, actually has a readership. Skeptical Science is run by John Cook, and basically the core of the site is an increasingly comprehensive database of rebuttals to the arguments of global warming “skeptics” (currently it includes rebuttals to no less than 122 arguments). The site has been a major inspiration for me, particularly its politically neutral fact-based approach (unlike some other climate blogs I could name).
Earlier this year I started posting comments on Skeptical Science giving detailed feedback on how to improve the site, most of which John adopted. Then a few weeks ago, John announced that the site would now include basic, intermediate, and advanced versions of each rebuttal, and asked for volunteers to help write the basic versions. So, long story short, I’ve written a number of basic rebuttals for Skeptical Science:
I will continue to make contributions to Skeptical Science and will link to them.
