Scepticism

There is a terribly witty post at Tim Lambert's blog listing all the silly arguments that "global warming sceptics " use, together with refutations for some. The latter are quite interesting, and made me think for a while. It seems to me that, of the refutations I had time to read, they would be eminently believable to someone inclined to believe them, and open to nitpicking by those not inclined to believe them. Ho hum ... that does rather support the one argument that he doesn't provide a refutation for.

Sadly, I can't see any mention of the "discredited argument" that goes along the lines of "Errr, global temperatures have actually been dropping for the last ten years..?", which is a shame.
