2012 SkS Weekly Digest #12

SkS Highlights

Kate's poignant, An Open Letter to the Future, drew rave reviews and is worth reading again. Peter Hadfield Letter to Chris Monckton by Rob Honeycutt not only contains the text of Hadfield's letter, but also Hadfield's video of his response to Monckton. As to be expected, John Cook's Skeptical Science hacked, private user details publicly posted online, generated the most comments this week.

Issue of the Week

From your perpspective, does SkS publish too many, just the right amount of, or too few, articles per week? Do you typically read each article that is posted? Do you typically read the comment threads? Do you typically post comments?

    The Center for Media and Democracy publishes SourceWatch, this collaborative resource for citizens and journalists looking for documented information about the corporations, industries, and people trying to influence public policy and public opinion. We believe in telling the truth about the most powerful interests in society—not just relating their self-serving press releases or letting real facts be bleached away by spin. With the help of volunteer editors, SourceWatch focuses on the for-profit corporations, non-profit corporate front groups, PR teams, and so-called "experts" trying to influence public opinion on behalf of global corporations and the government agencies they have captured.
