Climate Skeptics Forget the Obvious Intent of the Website SkepticalScience

The website SkepticalScience is intended to be comical—a joke. It was founded by John Cook, who was, at one time, self-described on his website as:

I’m not a climatologist or a scientist but a self employed cartoonist…

That explains everything.

When SkepticalScience revises the content of a post and changes the SkepticalScience comments on the thread, after the fact, without noting the changes, with the intent of making comments by other bloggers look foolish

When they purge all comments on every thread written by a blogger with an opposing view, after the fact

…it’s their idea of comedy.

Now it’s time to go back to writing posts about natural global warming caused by the long-term effects of El Niño and La Niña events.

    Initially I think Cook was sincere in his efforts to provide honest information about climate science. All indications are that that is not the case anymore.

    Sundance-
    Initially I thought SS was going to provide honest information about policy-based evidence-making in climate science.
    After a few visits, I realized I was right.

    Bob-

    Bob Tisdale,

    Thank you for fun post!

    It is great news that The people laughing at his site do have an almost inexhaustible amount of John Cook comedy material to laugh at.  

    The duplicity in his site’s title alone does appropriately set its histerically comedic tone.  That comedic tone  (not surprisingly) derives  from the site’s uncritical (therefore unscientific) endorsement of the pseudo-scientific ideological that fatally biases the writing of the dominate core of authors of the IPCC Assessment Reports.

    Ahh yes – i’ve been interested in finding my next fiction to read – thanks for the suggestion!

    rw: The only fictional parts of my book are the myths about ENSO created by AGW proponents in failed attempts to neutralize it. But I bust the myths with data.

    @rw it’s plain to see that you have a fixed mind and not a skerrick of thoughfulness.
    You want fiction? I suggest you go and read Michael Manns book…..

    But don’t go away – please hang about here you will learn something worthwhile if you are willing to open up your intellect.
