John Cook wins Eureka Prize, Archimedes screwed

Establishment science apologist and propagandist John Cook has been awarded the Eureka Prize by the Government of New South Wales supposedly “for communication that motivates action to reduce the impacts of climate change.” And , they might well have added, for promoting a one-world government and a return to the stone age.

Luboš Motl, the articulate and compassionate science blogger —cruelly dubbed NSF or even the Irredeemable Czech by his many jealous detractors—has said it better than FoGT ever could: Instead of congratulating someone which would be truly inappropriate, cynical, and unethical, let me express my deep condolences to Archimedes and all his fans (and all fans of science) – because his famous trademark has just been brutally humiliated and desecrated. And Cook, now you're not just a regular crackpot but a corrupt one. A few years in prison have been added to my Excel table next to your name. Standing up for the reputation of a dead Greek scientist is the kind of magnanimous and principled statement that we have come to expect to read on Mr Motl’s elegant website. Yet, Luboš , arguably the most intelligent man in all of Pilzen, manages to see a silver lining in all this (note, especially, the devastating use of Schadenfreude emoticons): Papertiger made a good point that his award for the kook could make his fellow alarmist kooks jealous and upset which could be a very good thing: division in the ranks. smiley_wink How do you feel, all Lamberts, to be a third league now? smiley_smile Break out the popcorn! Let’s all sit back and enjoy the spectacle of a cat fight among those vain, alarmist bloggers in the antipodes. Starting any minute now….Establishment science apologist and propagandist John Cook has been awarded the Eureka Prize by the Government of New South Wales supposedly “for communication that motivates action to reduce the impacts of climate change.” And , they might well have added, for promoting a one-world government and a return to the stone age.
