This is an interesting paper that examines the techniques of climate denial.
It identifies three main features of climate denial - three legs of a stool, if you will. One of those legs is "evidence is weak" which otherwise is expressed as "there is no consensus". Hence they assert that "the science is growing more uncertain", aka "the consensus is crumbling". Showing that the consensus/evidence is actually strengthening will remove one leg from the stool.
