An app to help you to quickly access easy answers to the most common issues raised by climate change skeptics.
The handy Skeptical Science app for iPhones, iPads and iPods will help you respond intelligently to any climate change deniers. In fact the app, which is named after the website maintained by John Cook, climate communication fellow for the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland, has catalogued 173 climate change myths, from “climate’s changed before” to “models are unreliable” to “animals and plants can adapt” that are given both quick one-sentence responses and, upon clicking, in-depth analysis backed by scientific data and graphs. The quick answer to the last one, for example: “Global warming will cause mass extinctions of species that cannot adapt on short time scales.”
A perfect app both for learning the facts about climate change and sharing with others who have yet to be enlightened. And the Skeptical Science app will keep you up to date with the latest news on climate change, too.
