Fed up with trying to deal with climate change deniers morons in your circle of family and friends who have an endless supply of idiotic and baseless claims to support their denialism? Nonsense like, “In the 70s, scientists predicted an ice age” and “Hey, global warming has to be a hoax. We just had a snowstorm!

Well,  Skeptical Science to the rescue. They’ve put together one-liner rejoinders to just about every dumbass argument deniers have in their arsenal of ignorance. They also provide links to the in depth explanations. Examples:

Skeptic Argument: The sun is causing the planet to warm.
Response: In the last 35 years of global warming, sun and climate have been going in opposite directions[link].

Skeptic Argument: Climate has changed before.
Response: Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant force.[link].

We’ve all heard this one a thousand times

Skeptic Argument: There is no consensus among scientists.
Response: 97% of climate experts agree humans are causing global warming. [link].

Good stuff. Check it out and be ready the next time you’re at a family gathering and your Fox News-loving idiot cousin tries to lay a little denialism your way.
