    I ask those who think it's a scam to forget climate change.  Do we really want to continue to pollute our air by burning lots of coal and gasoline?  We're going to run out of oil eventually, so we might as well try to stop using it.  It's a much easier argument to make than trying to step him/her through the scientific literature and trying to explain radiation absorption.  (N.B.: I'm a meteorology grad student, and while my specialty is not climate, I have read much of the literature.)
