- To fight skeptics they created a website, which accuses that there is a big conspiracy of well funded skeptics denying science.
- Thus is of cvourse total projection , cos the alarmists dogma was falling apart under skeptics scientific critism, they decided to use dirty PR tricks to smear them.
- Start with the name it's an ambush name desigbned to deceie people and hijack science's good name. Not Skeptical, nor science : The site is not pro-skeptic, nor is it pro-science as it's just about pushing Green Dogma.
- Based in Australia and centred around it's founder cartoonist John Cook, it became popukal in the cool left wing circuit. It isclosely associated with a well financed climate alarmist propaganda website is the US called Desmog blog. SkS became heavily partneredby a passionate Green acadaemic called Lewendowsky a pychilgy prof based in UWA, Pert. After a confrontation with skeptics about a dubious paper he made, he came up with a plan to make an acadaemic paper smearing the skeptics as conspiracy nutcases.
- Not being a proper acadaemic exercise the paper was flawed from the start, put Lew pushed and hyped his paper in the medfia, before it was published. The flawed papet drew criticism from skeptics due to it's flaws
and was not actually published as it's publisher sent it back.
- Unfortunately instead of denouncing the paperfor the crap it was, the whole alarmist sdide and media decided to circle the wagons, which is a cgaracteristic the have, which has continually discredited their side as untrustworthy as they refuse to ever acknowledge any mistakes. aThey did the same for Climategate and 28 gate either ignoring propblems or whitewashing them.
- Over the next year it was still not published and projecting again Lew and the SkS team kept coming up with conspiracy nutcase theories as to why. Eventually the publishers announced formeky the rtraction of the paper. This was an incredible problem for alarmists as after so many whitewases they would have to face up to a big error. So as damage limitation exercise they made it widely known, that the paper was fine, but actually,as huge legal pressure from skeptics of threats to sue for libel, the publisher had been afraid to publish. "Lie" said skeptics
