Why is there so much preoccupation with atmospheric CO2 concentrations and reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions when it is well documented in the peer-reviewed scientific literature that the CO2 contribution to the overall greenhouse effect is so weak that it can be easily supplanted by small changes in clouds and water vapor, or natural climate-changing constituents?

Climate Teachers: a quiz to pass around the staffroom

If your colleagues mostly read The Guardian and excoriate The Mail on Sunday and Daily Mail, then they are likely to a) be seriously mis-informed about climate change and b) unlikely to have seen this quiz.

10 questions out of hundreds that could be constructed on similar lines are not too many to put someone intent on their coffee off trying them.  The two Tory opportunists in the picture may even provide motivation for them to have a go since I suppose a Guardian-reader will automatically be incensed by them.  In this case, for once, they would be right in their prejudice.

As a bonus poke in the eye, let them see the rest of the page carrying the quiz, but only after they have been softened up by it!
