Steven Novella throws down the gauntlet on climate skepticism

In Skepticism on February 8, 2010 at 4:38 pm

Dr. Steven Novella, well known Skeptic, host of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe Podcast and blogger wrote a great article today on ‘Climate Skepticism’. He writes:

I may be wrong – if you think I am then let’s discuss the science. My challenge to those who consider themselves global warming skeptics is, if you wish to truly earn that mantle, is to focus on scientific arguments. My opinions can be changed on this topic, I really have no stake in the debate at all – except the one that every human on the planet has, which is only served by knowing the truth, whatever it is. I hope global warming is not happening, it is nothing but a major inconvenience and crimp in civilization. I would love to just continue burning fossil fuels and not have to worry about the consequences.

So if you disagree with me, show me some science. And spare me the name-calling and conspiracy theories.
