The long-range plan is to have a definitive resource on prominent skeptics, listing articles they've published, the myths they use along with our rebuttals. A temporary under-construction page of all the skeptics in our database is available at:
Everyone can help build this resource - whenever you encounter an article by a prominent skeptic, add it to the database. Here's how:
1. How to add articles by a skeptic
This is a two-step process. First, add a URL to our database. Second, assign it to a skeptic.
2. How to add critiques of your skeptic
We also link to external blogs that post rebuttals of skeptics. To add these to our list, go through all the same steps listed above but with one key difference - when submitting via the Firefox Add-on, for Bias, select Pro-AGW. Follow this process and any Pro-AGW links assigned to a skeptic will automatically appear in the 'External Links' tab.
3. Adding more skeptics
If you'd like to add another skeptic to the database, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add it. It would be helpful if you could email me a photo (or URL of a photo). Try to make it a more recent photo - as most skeptics are grey haired retired old men, it's good for the photo album to reflect that.
4. Assign a SkS blog post to a skepticIf there's a Skeptical Science blog post written about a skeptic, you can assign it to the skeptic so the blog post is listed under the 'Blog Posts' tab. Go to the SkS Blogs part of the Skeptics Admin. Click Add Skeptic Blog Map. Select the skeptic, the blog post and click 'Add Skeptic Blog Map'. You're done!
I've been doing a lot of populating Lindzen's page :-)
I noticed that none of the tabs are working for the skeptics except Monckton, but obviously that's not a big deal while the pages are embargoed. One question I had though - what about adding SkS blog posts to the list? Like the Case Studies for Lindzen - would we use Firefox for that too?

I need to tweak the programming so the tabs work for everyone. |
No, don't use firefox for our SkS posts. I have a special database map for that.
UPDATE: have added a new feature to Skeptics Admin and posted instructions above on how to assign SkS blog posts to a skeptic.
