John Cook and his award

Following all the questions raised about his blog John Cook has managed to respond. Or not.

Cook says that people complain about his penguin pictures and creative logos. Please visit Head Asploder Joe Romm where he calls Richard Lindzen, William Happer, Roger Pielke Sr, John Christy and a host of others, ‘fools’. Who does he turn to for support? John Cook of course.  You can see this page where Cook has rounded up pictures of sceptical scientists and has them displayed as though they were a bunch of common criminals, with their mugshots in a gallery.

Cook thinks that the ‘attacks’ on his website have increased after he won an award. Unfortunately, he has the chronology in reverse.

In reality Cook was ‘attacked’ before he won anything (for e.g). And the ‘attacks’ were directed at the ‘science’ he presented. Only he deleted them, tampered with them, or ignored them.

And then he won his award.

    I posted the following comment at Skeptical science

    “Firstly, the level of criticism and scrutiny that Skeptical Science receives from those that reject anthropogenic global warming has increased an order of magnitude. Almost without exception, the criticisms neatly avoid the science presented at SkS and instead focus on big issues like the buttons in our margin, comment moderation and the fact that our header graphic is photoshopped”

    John Cook the following are all the criticisms of Skeptical Science which you and your moderators have not repsonded to, and almost all of them focus on the science:

    (I then link to numerous scientific critiques, which are too many to post in one comment on this blog)

    Will you acknowledge there are numerous scientific critiques of SkS and could you please explain why you have not responded to them? ‘

    Which was then deleted 10-15 minutes later.
