Cook’s Trick

In today’s post, I’m going to present a narrative of Richard Tol’s efforts to obtain rater ID and timestamps from the University of Queensland. See pdf here. While there have been a number of references to these efforts, few readers and commenters will (or can reasonably) spend the time to pull the threads together. Tol […]

Cook’s Fake Ethics Approval

For over a year, John Cook and the University of Queensland have repeatedly refused Richard Tol’s requests for information on rater ID and timestamps for the SKS ratings for Cook et al 2013. Recently there have been two events that shed new light on the dispute. First, in mid-May Brandon Shollenberger located the requested information […]

SKS and Mann’s Doctored Quote

Shub Niggurath has spotted the probable source of the doctored quotation in the Mann pleadings (h/t Mosher). Shub located the doctored phrase at Skeptical Science here. Check out Shub’s post. The SKS webpage lists the same nine committees as listed in paragraph 21 of Mann’s pleadings. See here for a detailed discussion of a baldfaced […]

Behind the SKS Curtain

As a preamble and reprise, I think that it is reasonable for Cowtan and Way to take exception with HadCRU’s failure to estimate temperature in Arctic gridcells and to propose methods for estimating this temperature. At a time when the climate community argued that differences between the major indices and accessibility to CRU data didn’t […]

A New Climate Costumed Vigilante

A trivia question today for CA readers.

UnderCooked Statistics

Yet another propaganda essay masquerading as a scientific paper has been published (SI here) in the journal, Environmental Research Letters.   The latest entry, Quantifying the Consensus on Anthropogenic Global Warming in the Scientific Literature, written by a team of activist bloggers led by John Cook of the antithetically named Skeptical Science blog,  attempts to further […]

Cook’s Survey

John Cook, whose crush on Lewandowsky continues unabated, asked various blogs, including Climat Audit, to direct readers to another online survey. Lucia has discussed the survey here. The links to the survey from SKS here is http://survey.gci.uq.edu.au/survey.php?c=1R9YT8YMZTWF and from Rabett hereis http://survey.gci.uq.edu.au/survey.php?c=II7WP4R4VRU7. More IDs are available at Lucia’s. It is easy enough to access both […]

Tom Curtis Writes

While CA readers may disagree with Tom Curtis, we’ve also noticed that he is straightforward. Recently, in comments responding to my recent post on misrepresentations by Lewandowsky and Cook, Curtis agreed that “Lewandowsky’s new addition to his paper is silly beyond belief”, but argued that “the FOI data does not show Cook to have lied […]

Lewandowsky Doubles Down

Last fall, Geoff Chambers and Barry Woods established beyond a shadow of a doubt that no blog post linking to the Lewandowsky survey had ever been published at the Skeptical Science (SKS) blog. Chambers reasonably suggested at the time that the authors correct the claim in the article to reflect the lack of any link […]

The SkS “Link” to the Lewandowsky Survey

Lewandowsky et al stated that “links were posted on 8 blogs (with a pro-science science stance but with a diverse audience”. Lewandowsky identified the eight blogs (in an email to Barry Woods) as: Skeptical Science, Tamino, Bickmore, the UU-UNO Clmate Change Task Force (trunity), Ill Considered, Mandia, Deltoid and Hot Topic. The relevant posts at […]
