Description: Debunking pseudoscience requires painstaking dismantling of misconceptions and falsehoods. This presentation accompanied a talk that addressed climate skeptics and a misleading narrative about carbon dioxide:

“If CO2 is a greenhouse gas, and both Venus and Mars have atmospheres of about 95% CO2, then why is Venus so hot and Mars is not?”

There are lots of reasons, actually, and the answer is more complex than the question.

An update to the presentation called for infographics that summarized some of the major points, such as the vast difference in volume of the planets’ atmospheres.
