I never heard of pseudoskeptics.
Thats a new one.
I think those who believe global warming is a hoax, just don't want to accept the evidence.

The only evidence that will satisfy you, if you could have a beer with one of the Grays.
The video evidence is bullsh*t, the pictures is bullsh*t, the millions of witnesses is bullsh*t, the governments lying and contradictions for explanations is all bullsh*t, right?

And this is a comment that reveals that you either have some testable evidence that you keep private (unlikely) or you're simply credulous.
Skeptic: someone who habitually doubts accepted beliefs.
But I believe a skeptic doubts everything, that they don't experience with all their 5 senses.
But then if that is satisfied, they will probably still question it.
