This site is a supplement to the RealClimate.org website.

It is primarily an index for debunking of various popular media occurrences of climate-related nonsense. Articles are sorted by where they appear (outlet and country), or alphabetically by author. Under each article you will find links to rebuttals of specific arguments and overall critiques of the pieces. This is by no means comprehensive, but should provide a starting point for those interested in seeing why these pieces are wrong. We do not include mainstream journalist pieces that are occasionally mistaken or somewhat sensationalist (see the main website for that kind of commentary), but we do include the op-ed pieces that are specifically designed to confuse, obfuscate and abuse the science.

For each article, the links to content are on the author page (or in the case of editorials, on the newspaper page). Links are provided to content on a number of sites, some of the most common are denoted by initials: RC = RealClimate, CB = Coby Beck's "How to talk to skeptic guide" at A Few Things Ill Considered, TL = Tim Lambert at Deltoid.

If you would like to help edit these pages, please setup a user account, and let us know (at contrib -at- realclimate.org) of your interest and expertise. Anonymous edits are currently disabled.
