One of the most odious individuals to exist on the Internet is Anthony Watts, climate science denier and all round ass.
But you knew that.
What you may not have been thinking when you woke up this morning, and you are forgiven since there are some other important things going on in this world, is that this is the approximate tenth anniversary of the end of Watt’s credibility, which also coincides with the end of Roger Pielke Sr’s credibility, and a few other related casualties of ill intentioned fake science.
I’m reminded of this fact by my friend Victor Venema, who woke up this morning with a blog post: The 10th anniversary of the still unpublished Watts et al. (2012) manuscript .
The object lesson from this anniversary: Science marches on while pesudoscience withers and dies.
