Junk Science and Climate Change

Here is an article from George Monbiot rebutting in detail one pseudo-scientific claim that there is no such thing as global warming -- a claim that happened to be published by a prominent scientist in a prominent publication. It is interesting because it illustrates

how selective you have to be to dismiss the evidence for climate change. You must climb over a mountain of evidence to pick up a crumb: a crumb which then disintegrates in the palm of your hand. You must ignore an entire canon of science, the statements of the world's most eminent scientific institutions, and thousands of papers published in the foremost scientific journals.
