But Greg Laden has a primer on how skeptics can learn “what to believe.” A skeptic should question, but one doesn’t want to become a 9/11 conspiracy theorist, a crazy anti-vaccine person, or the kind of moron who denies global warming (caution: clicking any of the three previous links could actually cause you to become dumber).  So, how does a skeptic learn enough about a scientific issue to figure out whether or not to believe something?  Again, Greg Laden has the post that will help you.
