Logic in the climate change discussion

  1. Jan 25, 2005 #1
    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?

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