Anthony Watts is green with envy. Uh oh. Not green by a long shot, but he is so envious. Why? Well, President Obama has tweeted about SkepticalScience 97 hours!
Anthony Watts, denier blogger at WUWT, is so jealous that he wrote an article (archived here) mentioning the tweet, but didn't highlight the fact that it was about John Cook and Skeptical Science's 97 hours campaign. Instead he linked it to a zombie photo and an article about civil disobedience. Not the article that the President linked to.
Just how desperate must Anthony be to sink to such low propaganda tactics of deception.
Here's the tweet:
"'There’s no debate': 97 experts explain the scientific consensus on climate change" More from @Salon: http://t.co/dER5LipEKy #ActOnClimate
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) September 9, 2014
That's the second time that there's been a President Obama tweet about a SkepticalScience initiative. The last one only went to 31 million plus followers. This one went to 46.3 million followers.
It is tearing Anthony apart. No US President has ever tweeted about the world's biggest anti-science blog WUWT.
Anthony is so torn apart and twisted that he didn't embed the tweet. Instead he copied it into a photoshopped image from some zombie film, which had been altered to insert placards for Obama and climate. Anthony or one of his denier mates photoshopped the image below except for the arrow and the bit that says "photoshopped by Anthony Watts".

Not only that, but in the same article, Anthony disappeared the warming after 1995. That means he's even got rid of the 97-98 El Nino so beloved of deniers. He wrote:
Meanwhile, Earth hasn’t gotten any warmer at the surface since 1995, or in the lower troposphere for a similar amount of time.
Let's see - at the surface it's got quite a bit warmer since 1995, which at the time was itself a record hot year:
In the lower troposphere - yep, there've been hardly any years colder than 1995 since then - and again, 1995was a record hot year for RSS:
Anthony Watts has become barking mad of late. He's losing his marbles. He's in such a state that he resorts to photoshopping, cherry picking and generally making up stuff that's too ridiculous for anyone but hard core deniers to swallow.
From the WUWT comments
I'm running late - got to rush. Maybe later I'll show how much his bottom of the barrel followers just love this new Anthony Watts. Finally, he's one of "them".
