Denialist Analysis

As the denialist I encounter the most, George Milhous Roper clearly falls in this category: Expert denialism ('It's the sun! or the urban heat island!'): This is the kind of stuff peddled by the think tanks (CEI, Marshall Institute etc.) and which occasionally makes it into the main stream press as second or third hand quotes in op-ed pieces. Mostly a web based phenonemon though. They feel their reasoning is obvious, citing Occam's Razor even, but in fact it's fallacious as more learned observers can tell easily. The Sun doesn't account for the excess CO2 we have measured, nor the one degree increase in 100 years.
