I'm not sure if this is correct spot for analysing the logic in the climate change discussion. But it's about logic and not about global warming. So we give it a shot.

Let's meet Stephen Schneider

I will not comment here, that would be risking poisoning the well. Only notice that SS is a scientist in the field of climate change.

Now perhaps check out http://stephenschneider.stanford.edu/Climate/Climate_Science/CliSciFrameset.html [Broken]

Now I do wonder if we see either a skillfull logical refuting of the opponents or the most dense concentration of fallacies per sentence ever.

What would it be?

And yes, you're right: This is a black-or-white fallacy:

See how easy it is to generate inproper thinking? Grey is also allowed.
