Tim Lambert over at Deltoid has a great illustration of how denialists play the telephone game.

It basically goes like this:

  • NASA: “New study confirms greenhouse gases, not the sun, are causing the current climate change”
  • Denialist 1: “NASA confirms that the sun is causing the current climate change”
  • Denialist 2: “NASA confirms that the sun is causing the current climate change and Al Gore is fat”

And then we get to read the cut and paste in the comments here and elsewhere around the blogosphere. But do go read a few more details at Deltoid, it is why the label “skeptic” is just about the least appropriate thing possible for those who traffic this crap.
