“Yet another indicator that interest in climate has fallen by the wayside – climate doesn’t make it into the top ten science press releases for 2014” (2014-12-25). This is the kind of post from Anthony Watts that lays bare his real purpose. Public ignorance serves him better than public interest.
Given Anthony’s deep commitment to (muddying) the climate debate, you’d think he’d be upset that a climate topic isn’t among EurekaAlert’s 2014 most popular press releases. (No link to the source in Anthony’s post.) Shouldn’t he want more chances to fool the public, to spread confusion, to smear “bureaucrats”?
No, Anthony’s happy that climate issues seem to be losing attention. He does his best work in the shadows and under rocks.
His job is clearly done. Nothing left for him now but to move onto another discipline where the establishment is trying to pull the wool over all our eyes…. astrophysics. Everyone needs to know the sun shines from his arse and he is also the centre of the universe.
