appendices of your humble correspondent will share AUD $240,000 for his climate propaganda:John Cook, a prolific hardcore crackpot and one of the numerous tiny Internet-based stalking
This guy has no clue about the climate science or atmospheric physics but he has gained some notoriety for his mass production of talking points meant to spread the climate panic and produce doubts about well-established scientific insights that show that there is no reason to be worried about climate change.
His newest list of the talking points claims that 166 independent quantities describing the climate have the uniformly right sign that suggest that the catastrophe is coming and worse than previously thought. The probability that 166 independent signs agree is 1/2^165 but Cook still claims that this coincidence does hold in the real world. ;-)
Everyone who fails to see that Cook is full of **it must be a complete idiot.
Well, his apparent bigotry is no longer based on any idealism. The article I mentioned reveals that despite his complete incompetence when it comes to science, he is actually being paid by the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland - an obvious counterpart of the Czech Globe which pays unhinged Slovak alarmist Alexander Ač - for producing the lies and obfuscations he is producing every day.
