Over at Watts Up With That, Anthony’s asking for letter writing to inject a bit of sense into the ‘extreme weather’ hype and counter the response to 350.org’s climate connect the dots campaign. I have another suggestion.
Excerpt from an email by 350.org’s Bill McKibben:
A story on the front page of yesterday’s New York Times described a new poll — Americans in record numbers are understanding that the planet is warming because they’re seeing the “freaky” weather that comes with climate change.
And the story ends by describing the next step in this process: May 5, the giant Connect the Dots day that people are joining all around the globe: http://www.ClimateDots.org
I think there’s a lot more we at skeptical blogs could do with this “Connect the dots” meme. In fact I’d say Bill McKibben has handed us one on a plate. OK he’s gone for a very visual thing, asking people to take photo of ‘climate dots’, but he wants that phrase “People are starting to connect the dots.” to be associated with CAGW. Well so be it.
Let’s make it our own. There are so many “connect the dots” in skepticism…
Al Gore says sea level is gonna rise twenty feet. . . . Al Gore recently bought a $8 million oceanfront mansion in Montecito, California – connect the dots.
Get the idea?
