Global Warming for Dummies

Resource: How to talk to a Global Warming Skeptic

Huffington has an article very useful tool at Grist. The direct link is here. This will be very helpful when countering anti-global warming talking points parroted from right-wing media blowhards.

About the only thing I can find wrong with any of this is referring to such people as 'skeptics'. Being a 'skeptic' implies some sort of critical thinking. Being a skeptic is healthy! But most of these people fall into the knee-jerk 'denier' crowd, not the skeptical one. You know, the same folks who deny evolution, deny the Holocaust, deny the germ theory of disease, and have their feet planted firmly in a geocentric universe.
