Lights Off Upstairs At Skeptical Science

That’s the only explanation for SkS to tweet about “Doonesbury cartoon on climate deniers http://bit.ly/xNSUsx“.

Here’s the strip:

Obviously, John Cook and friends are completely unaware of a few things about their own site:

  • It’s built to reach out to climate newbies
  • It’s where believers in (catastrophic) anthropogenic climate change go in desperate search of “evidence” to “support their position”
  • It’s the one site sporting the belief “everyone is entitled” to read a single set of “facts” as determined by John Cook and friends
  • It sports thousands of “facts”

It all looks like a heroic case of irony failure. Unless Doonesbury is so clever as to subtly indicate where the denial of science actually is…at Skeptical Science, of course.

    Robert – dozens of comments are routinely deleted at SkS on a daily basis almost. Not one has ever been deleted here at Omniclimate. Where the facts are, and where the “facts” are, is self-evident.

    diogenes :
    are you waiting for Dana to leave some “fact”-filled response?

    It would probably be deleted. Weren’t you aware? This is the no-fact zone as is evidenced by Maurizio’s work.

    Oh, you mean the peer-reviewed papers? The actual data? I can see why you might find that disturbing…

      KR – what I find disturbing is to see so many peer-reviewed papers’ conclusions twisted and turned by SkS for the sake of The One Truth.

    Adam – John Cook is evidently not evil. He just doesn’t reach high enough.

    There was one recent post, where John Cook claimed that there were virtually no scientific critiques of SkS.
    In the comments I linked to numerous scientific critiques of SkS, yet my comment was removed 10 minutes after being posted.
    I copied it out here

    Perfect title. They are in the dark when it comes to their own propaganda efforts.

    Diogenes – I understand he’s busy on the phone 🙂
