I like the term "climate cranks" used (or even coined?) in the article. That sums up what they are pretty nicely.

Yeah, but it isn't any more acceptable than "denialists", although with different associations. It's still an ad hominem.

The snappiest thing I've been able to think of is "anti-anti-AGWers". (Because we are the real "anti-AGWers": we're against AGW.)
