"Anti-science website on verge of being named Best Science Blog"
Okay, this is not as big a deal as, say, the election of John McCain and Sarah Palin would have been. But, Watts Up With That is currently leading the online (i.e. non-scientific) Weblog Awards voting for Best Science Blog, as feared (see “Weblog Awards duped by deniers — again!“).
Watts is a major global warming denier and sufferer of anti-science syndrome, as evidenced by his reprinting and endorsing a broad-based attack on the integrity of the entire scientific community [see “Diagnosing a victim of anti-science syndrome (ASS)“].
If this annoys you in the least or if you are just feeling bored today, you should vote here for Watts’ closest competitor, Pharyngula. Vote soon, though. The “polls” close today, Tuesday, at 5 pm EST.
