Ah, yes... I forgot about the Great Age of Volcanism from 1940 to 1970, 
which blocked the sun, blew the trees off Easter Island and caused acid 
rain. The puny humans had nothing to do with any of that. And besides, it is 
a well known fact that acid rain does not pollute lakes, all the dead fish 

Maybe we can teach this to kids in history class, to 'counterbalance' seeing 
An Inconvenient Truth that they were shown a few minutes earlier in science 

All joking aside, I am not a fan of trying to counterbalance nutty 
statements from one side of the political spectrum with even nuttier 
statements from the other side of the spectrum. This is not a healthy way 
for society to make decisions. Eventually, we are left to choose between 2 
extreme lunatic positions.

I think we have a duty to point out inaccurate and misleading statements, 
even if they support our political positions. When I go out looking for 
information about the effect CO2 has on climate, I don't appreciate being 
mislead about the cause and effect relationship between CO2 and warming that 
the ice core data presents and I don't appreciate being lied to about the 
correlation between solar activity and global cooling. To me, it is 
absolutely insane that anyone can support this stuff.
