Denier blogs are in the doldrums and have been for quite some time. I wrote about Judith Curry, who actively agitates for no mitigation of global warming, complaining about scientists warning US Congress about the dangers of climate change. Seriously! Is that all she's got?
Jo Nova has been focused on politics. She likes One Nation's climate conspiracy theories and in one article she urged her readers to vote for a Senate candidate from an ultra-conservative populist party that stands on climate science denial, homophobia, islamophobia, and against almost all the values that decent Australians cherish. That is the Christian Democrat Party, which is the creature of Fred Nile. Joanne is a proud deluded conservative (DelCon) who regards centrist conservatives as socialist. She paints everyone to the left of Ghengis Kahn as subversive commies.
Anthony Watts has been posting a lot of political articles too. He hasn't been around much except to put up some very silly articles from his band of freeby contributors. His latest contribution is another wacky article by one of his favourite uber-conspiracy theorists Timothy Ball (archived here).
Tim Ball (and by default Anthony Watts) rejects the science that shows the Arctic ice melt is declining rapidly. When Tim claims that the Arctic sea ice behaviour is "natural", it's his way of saying that he rejects human-caused global warming. (Tim is also a greenhouse effect denier and author of the SkyDragon slayer book.) This is what has been happening to sea ice in the Arctic since 1953.

As you can see, Timothy Ball and Anthony Watts are only interested in spreading lies about what is happening with climate change, and to make it worse, Tim wrote:
It is another example of alarmists and uninformed media reporting a natural situation as unnatural. It is a lie of omission because they only presented facts that suited their story, but lying and deception are now standard and condoned practice for some people. Apparently for them the end justifies the means.
After a string of conspiratorial fibs about science and scientists, Timothy moved on to lies about the hole in the ozone layer. Anthony Watts is an ozone hole denier as well as a climate science denier. He has published numerous articles denying the ozone hole and its causes. Anthony Watts and his mob at WUWT can only be described as utter nutters of the illiterati kind. Tim misrepresented a recent report that the ozone hole is, maybe, just starting to show the first signs of recovery as being "almost back to “normal” ".
Tim lays out his conspiracy theory, which is the same old anti-semitic New World Order conspiracy theory dressed up as ozone hole and climate science denial. The more he talks about deceit and lying, the more you see that's all he and Anthony Watts have got left.
Anthony Watts and Judith Curry and Jo Nova can lash out at science and scientists and renewable energy all they want. They are too late. The weather around the world hasn't been kind to these climate science disinformers. Record heat, simultaneous disastrous floods all over the world, drought, wildfire, and more.
And yet, you still get WUWT promoting ice age cometh articles and wacky conspiracy theories. These people are seriously deluded.
From the WUWT comments
The uber-conspiracy theorists go for it hell for leather. They just love a nefarious plot and can't help themselves. Have you ever come across a sorrier lot of dimwits?

The ‘Ozone hole’ and its ‘solution’ was a forerunner of AGW. It was a test, to see how susceptible the world population could be to control by a despotic few in the UN (etc). Not to mention how many refrigeration manufacturers cleaned up because of the need to switch to non-CFC coolants.
Ziiex Zeburz doesn't know about the science denier parties (UKIP, Republicans, One Nation)

If we only had ONE 1 “sophisticated ” politician (1 that could understand facts and figures )
BallBounces is a Y2k denier as well

During the ramp-up to the year 2000, there were two voices: Y2K alarmists and moderates. The alarmists made lots of money; the moderates did not. Running a scare racket can be very lucrative.

Thanks to Dr. Tim Ball for another great and detailed expose of the Machiavellian processes of Global Climate manipulations by the Alarmists.
GeologyJim is a misogynist as well as a science denier. No surprises there.

It’s always intrigued me that three of the biggest scientific frauds of the 20th century were committed by women who, by the way, are now lionized by leftists and progressives.
The WUWT comments are a sad indictment on the human race. I can't be bothered reading any more.
