I believe I have shown
that John Cook, lead author of the
article commonly cited for the claim that 97% of climate scientists support
AGW, has lied in print about his own work. My argument assumed that Cook et.
al. 2013 was itself honest, but other people have offered good evidence
that it is
It is not surprising if there are some dishonest people on
one side, or the other, or both of the climate controversy. A more interesting question
is whether there are any honest people. Can anyone point at a prominent
supporter of action to prevent warming who has publicly rejected Cook et. al.
2013 or its author?
The same question can be asked of the other side. Are there prominent
articles criticizing the campaign to prevent warming that are clearly
dishonest, clearly enough so that someone with no commitment to either side of
the controversy would recognize them as such? If so, have they been publicly
rejected by anyone on that side?
