I’m remixing a number of the Climate Denial Crock of the Week videos, in order to address some complaints people have had.

Number one, my sound mixing and quality have been poor, and I’ve gotten some better equipment and more experience, so I can make them a lot easier to listen to.

Number two, people have asked for related URLs and sites they can go to, in order to follow up on arguments presented in the video, so I am doing that here.

The first-up remix is my debunking of the perennial denier favorite, ‘There’s Global Warming on Mars”, one of my favorites for content, and biggest embarrassments for sound. Here are the supporting links.

1998 Revisited

September 05, 2009

One of the enduring myths of climate denialism is that global warming
stopped sometime in the last decade. I see it in the blaring headlines of pseudoscience websites, in comments on my videos, even some of our most distinguished journalists have been taken in.

Denial was a River in Africa

August 21, 2009

In 2 decades of wars for oil and resources, the fossil fuel industry has gotten a lot of bad press.
But climate deniers are people too, and they need to feel good about themselves and what they do. So they’ve worked hard overcome feelings of guilt.

It’s a defense I call, “Therapeutic denial”…..
