Climate deniers? There's an app for that.
For anyone who has been stuck in a
conversation with someone who passionately says something about climate
change that is utterly uninformed, you'll know how nice it is to not
only be able to talk about the science that proves them wrong, but now
you can actually show them research on it right there in the middle of
Thanks to an Australian solar physicist John Cook, you can access via an iPhone app skeptics' arguments, and then get the science-based counter-arguments in the palm of your hand.
When you turn on the app, you can look at the top 10 most used arguments, or search through three main argument categories - including 'It's not happening', 'It's not us', 'It's not bad'. As you search, you can pull up a skeptic argument (there are 90 arguments listed in the app with their rebuttals so far), then a summary of what the science says. It even includes graphs and links to scientific papers and other sources.
Sounds nifty! Too bad I don't have an iPhone...
