Apparently Prof. Scott Denning of Colorado State has tricked the Heartland Institute into accepting a talk entitled “Debunking Common Myths About Global Warming” for their annual
conference caucus this year.
The joke is on them. It turns out that the presentation is quite excellent! (Well, except that it’s a Microsoft PowerPoint (with heavy use of Comic Sans) but if you can put up with that, here you go.)
Update: Apparently my impression relayed above that Scott Denning spoke to the Heartland Institute on the basis of some subterfuge, was incorrect. I apologize to all concerned.
I remain convinced that his slides are an excellent introduction to the science behind the concerns about climate change. I also think that his remarks to the plenary, kindly linked by Jim Lakely in the comments below, are extraordinarily insightful and helpful. I recommend careful attention to what he is saying to anyone interested in these matters.
