In this excellent talk given by Peter Ellerton (winner of the 2008 Australian Skeptics prize for Critical Thinking) on the Climate Change debate, the viewer is encouraged to examine the way in which the debate is being run and scrutinise their own convictions as to why they may have taken the position they have about Global Warming. Peter provides some very useful thinking tools for navigating this complex terrain.
