This is a link to my ‘letter to the editor’ in my hometown newspaper the Montgomery Advertiser. Many people have left comments in regard to my critique of global warming deniers, and some of them contain good examples of logical fallacies.
Many bring up Al Gore in an attempt to discredit the scientific consensus, but this argument would qualify as an: Ad Hominem and Non-Sequitur.

1. Ad Hominem  Attacking the arguer instead of the arguement 

2. Non-Sequitur  Arguing a point that has no relevance to proving ones position

* Can anyone point out other logical fallacies?
