I have often been surprised when people are very adamant about something that they probably do not know much about.  It usually works to my detriment because I typically do not know much about it either so I have historically had a hard time phrasing my disagreement.  After all it's a little rude to say, "hey, bullshit smells, and right now, so do you."  Lots of these folks are perfectly nice, they're just, well, wrong. 

This video brings it up because I've often talked to people who inflated the uncertainty in reconstructions of temperature trends.  Now I realize they were just parroting denialist talking points.

How would you rephrase: "hey, bullshit smells, and right now, so do you." (?)
