Best riposte I've heard is that one should substitute the question:

"Do you believe in Climate Change?"

with:

"Do you understand Climate Change?"


Yes, good one, must use that.

What do you reply when they say "yes"?

"BBC apologises over interview with climate denier Lord Lawson"

Source

Too late, the damage is done.

a sensible Yorkshire person wrote:
“I really thought the climate change debate had finished and that these voices of the very rich and well connected had lost relevance in the whole argument,” said Dr Tim Thornton, a recently retired GP from Yorkshire who made one of the complaints. “It’s fine that they don’t like the idea of climate change but they are on a par with flat-earthers.”

Thornton highlighted the claim that global temperatures had not risen: “Even a sixth-former would be able to tell you that wasn’t so. So the BBC interviewer, if they are talking about climate change, should have done a little bit of homework.”


Meow.
