You donÂ't need to be a global warming Â"denierÂ" to enjoy this smack-down of the scientific establishment by libertarian comic Tim Slagle. You just need to have a healthy anti-establishment streak. But that is something that the author of the mildly successful blog Respectful Insolence, who writes under the pseudonym of Orac, evidently lacks. He tries to take apart SlagleÂ's routine through some truly buzz-killing arguments here to which Slagle offers a non-buzz-killing response here.
