I am trying to set up an efforts to be done with deniers which would attempt to find a set of mutually agreed FAIR questions addressing climate issues. Many of you folks are so much more knowledgeable than I am. Is that an interesting project for any of the speakers? dslesinger@alum.mit.edu

if they don't understand that CO2 is a heat-trapping gas and therefore is leading to increased temperatures, how can they conceive of solutions? (e.g., decreasing fossil fuel use). can they make that leap if they're only thinking of precip?
