Peter Gleick Addresses Science Denial

The video is from last year, but I've just come across it.  The first part addresses fallacies that apply to all the science deniers, weather whether deniers of climatology, health physics, medicine, etc.  The first cartoon he displays fits right in with my previous post!:

In the second part he specifically addresses climatology and compares its denialism with the history of tobacco safety denialism.  That's followed by Q&A:

I can sympathize with him about all the tired old arguments. They've all been addressed in health physics, too.  "Fame still awaits anyone who can show these theories to be wrong".

Here's a link to the Skeptical Science website he mentioned.
