Good Application This application has all of the arguments from the SkS website used by climate change contrarians. Furthermore, it has news feed from the SkS site whenever a new article or argument is posted. Some people complain that the app and SkS are biased, but that is because science itself is biased toward reality and the reality that the global climate is changing and humans are causing it. Good work Cook et al.
FACTS = power With this app I can give pinpoint accurate facts about Climate Science and have the references to research to back it up. I can't stand idiots who repeat total rubbish they have heard. Now you can find the scientific data that climate sceptics serially misrepresent and show them how the science has been intentionally used out of context.
Misinformers even infiltrate reviews! Some misinformers are implying that this app presents research that was "debunked decades ago". Bull. It even contains RECENT research that backs up the same OLD studies which Oil Companies have misinformed their believers by conflating terms & not accurately defining the data, saying they had been debunked, despite new evidence being in conformity with older research. If the research & data is consistent, that should be a no-brainer! China is the biggest culprit! Call for intense energy reform in China!
Excellent tool to learn and understand climate change This is a handy tool for countering deniers' arguments. The interface could be a little better - for example, the nav screens are fixed in portrait mode. There is an amazing amount of information presented.
A smooth app that presents solid science on a critical topic I have a few news apps I regularly read, and this is on my short list. Their weekly summaries of scientific advances (and how these are either accurately captured or misrepresented by various media outlets) are indispensable in keeping up with this complex and rapidly advancing subject. I rely on this for my work and research. Very nice work!
Like the idea I havent had a chance to use it against anyone but my Dad is a huge climate change denier and strangely well educated and generally intelligent (though 74). He seems to find evidense supporting his views and me not being a scientist find it hard to combat him on specific points when in the moment. Hope this can rectify that, its exactly what i need.
