Not as funny as Stephen Colbert but a little more thorough, the New Scientist deconstructs 26 myths used by climate skeptics. They say "With so much at stake, it is right that climate science is subjected to the most intense scrutiny. What does not help is for the real issues to be muddied by discredited arguments or wild theories." There is also a guide for to assessing the evidence which starts with the line "Truth is the first casualty of war. As the political battle over climate change has heated up, so has the propaganda campaign."

Canards they refuse to duck from include "Human CO2 emissions are too tiny to matter" and "CO2 isn't the most important greenhouse gas" and many more. Collect them all at ::New Scientist
