    Hi Greenman,
    I love this directory! Great idea.
    One thing, I’m just wondering if you could rename this bit?

    ///Climate email Hack non-story///

    Could you please just add:
    “Climategate (or) Climate email Hack non-story”

    Most people know it as Climategate and it will help them find the video’s faster if you do it this way. Otherwise, LOVE IT!

  5. Eclipse Now Says:

    Which is that great “It’s cooling since 1998” video where you show that Denialist scientist warning against using 1998, as he says it will come back to bite the Heartland institute? I’ve checked your “It’s warming” heatwave 1 & 2 and it isn’t there?

    Cheers! GREAT WORK on those 2!

    Hi Peter, Im writing with a suggestion for a debunking that is on the cusp of being a worthwhile argument but probably isnt. It goes like this… ‘We are coming out of an ice age’ since that could mean the last glaciation or the LIA its hard to pin down and hence argue against but it also can be used to account for any observed warming trend. It was quoted to me the other day by someone whom I thought would be a little more progressive and informed on science.

    I could imagine this argument still holding some traction a couple of decades from now when observations of AGW are more widespread and less arcane. So it is worth giving some thought to IMHO. Hey ho.

  7. […] of course, that’s what the Climate Crock series is designed to do, end arguments around the minutia of climate denial crocks that Uncle and Auntie would have imbibed […]

  8. I’m getting tactics like “it’s just a model” or “all they have is a model”.  Shades of “it’s just a theory” from the creationist playbook.  And then a claim that the model “has a 75% error rate, half as accurate as a coin toss.”

    Do you know of a video that would cover these arguments?

    • greenman3610 Says:

      climate science is not based on models. it is based on observations. The most convincing evidence of climate change is from the record of the past, real events that have happened in the long history of the planet.
      If we assume that the planet will behave now and in the future as it has in the past, then we must take greenhouse gases into account.
      As to accuracy – they said it would warm, and it has.
