Recently I passed on detail of a new iphone/ipodtouch app providing access to the facts of climate change science (see Get your climate change science on the run). This seems to be catching on.
Anyway it’s upset some of those involved in trying to create confusion about climate change.
Yesterday one of their blogs, Climate Realists, sent out this alert see (WARNING! New Site set up as an iphone app to put down “Climate Realists”):
WARNING! There is an iphone app trying to put down what we have to say under the heading of “Skeptical Science”.
We need as many of you as possible to promote that this iphone app is yet another attempt to discredit “Climate Realists”.
I can only hope the general public can see through this as a cheap trick to prop up the FAILED SCIENCE OF MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE.
We need another iphone app that shows our side of the argument as it is, rather then what a supporter AGW thinks it is!
Please send this message to all known friendly sites that support our side.
Truth will out!
Somebody said that “lies are half way around the world before truth gets its boots on.” An underestimate, I would say.
With the current hysterical attack on climate science and climate scientists this is so true. It takes time to marshal the evidence needed to counter some of the claims being made. And most likely the perpetrator has moved on, in a Gish gallop, to a new issue and avoids facing up to the facts about the old one.
The internet is a great resource for people checking out some of the wild claims being made – providing you use reliable websites. One reliable site is Skeptical science, which has a byline of “Getting skeptical about global warming skepticism.” This site provides the actual scientific facts relevant to most claims made by climate change sceptics and deniers.
Now they have produced an application for the iPhone and ipod Touch. This will bring the much needed scientific information about climate change to your mobile device. Just imagine being able to check out a speaker during a lecture or debate – maybe even obtain the information of a sensible question.
Here’s a description of how to use the application taken from Skeptical Science now an iPhone app. at Skeptical science: Continue reading
