After UK journalist George Monbiot responded to Australian geologist Ian Plimer's set of counter-questions with "you're asking the wrong person," various scientists and others on science weblogs made note of the questions/problems and problems with them, but not in a systematic way.
The person creating this page wrote to Monbiot as follows:

This is the activist/campaign part of the page. It could well advance the actual debate as well as recording it.
