phony baloneyAs noted last Friday, The Dake Page has recently begun a weekly series exposing climate denialism. This week the site takes a look at how you, the interested and informed citizen, can “separate the actual science from the pseudoscience, or worse, the crock.”

Links to The Dake Page will be periodically posted on this Science Traveler site for those who are interested.
