I find it quite helpful to see public talks by deniers - it gives you a clear picture of their main talking points (which is helpful if you're ever going to engage them in debate). Here are Jo Nova and David Evans at a denier rally in Perth:
Ugh, I managed to stomach the whole thing, but I was sure tempted to stop watching every 30 seconds or so! That was a whole lot of conspiracy theories with about half of the myths in our database peppered in for good measure. I like how she described those signing the Oregon Petition as "conservative scientists". And right after she got done talking about how climate scientists are biased, she referenced a peer-reviewed paper. She's a decent speaker though. Certainly knows how to rile up a denier crowd. "And we're the deniers?!" Haha, yes, you are.
Great description of the talk on that denier blog, too. "Scathing satire meets intelligent investigative analysis." Riiiiiiight.
