It's the quick and the dead in the climate wars with this killer iPhone app

Ever reached an impasse in an argument about climate change, for want of accurate knowledge?

Science's answers to the common climate deniers' talking-points, painstakingly assembled by John Cook over many years, are now available at the tips of your fingers and right before your opponent's lying eyes, right when you need them next:


The app, published by Skeptical Science and Shine Technologies, has been praised and promoted around the climate change blogosphere.


Deltoid's readers are amused at the responses of the seemingly less tech-savvy deniers, and iTunes perceived 'lack of balance', that set off a round of complaints. Crikey's Pure Poison is the same.



Eli of Rabbett Run has promoted it above footage of rabbits. That's got to say something.



And the Guardiancovers the reportedly panicked responses from skeptics blogs.

If you come across a new deniers' talking-point, you can upload it to skepticalscience.com to keep feeding John Cook's labour of love, and help him continue to set the record straight.

"How cool would it be to track the spread of the memes in real-time? And what's the hint from Shine Technologies about 'heatmaps'?", are my only two questions.

It seems to me that the AGW frauds will not give up the fight easily even though they have been exposed and the public no longer pays any attention to them. Good luck on using propaganda based on lies to hide the truth.

Thanks, VangelV. How are you anyway?

Wow, thanks for sharing. The scienctific dictatorship prepares a further assault on open debate by providing lies at the finger tips of the brainwashed youth. They might as well just get a brain chip.

It's just information, Graham, you should be grateful to the scientific dictatorship.
