Stranger than fiction: A little background on the cartooning and cricket blogging of John Cook of Skeptical Science, Al Gore’s Climate “Reality” drop partner.
From this Wikipedia Entry
On February 17, 2010, Cook made the decision to virtually shut down the Sev site for good, aside from the occasional A Time to Laugh cartoon.  This decision was not unexpected, since the site had been floundering for the previous year and a half, with updates being late and missed. Cook originally was caught up working on Cricket Blog, a cricket website, but his interests turned towards Skeptical Science, a site about information on global warming. This site was said to “take over [his] life so dramatically” that all other projects, including Sev, Cricket Blog, and a site dedicated to web programming, are now “sorely neglected.” The decision was preceded by fans complaining on the Discussion Board about Cook’s “hobby” taking over, and it rose to the level of “personal attacks” on Cook. Cook denies any of the accusations in these attacks. Cook apologizes to all who enjoyed his cartoons over the years that they won’t be getting any more. Cook’s critics are disappointed in his decision, as shown by the following quote:
It’s very sad to me that he seems to be abandoning a decade long project to bring humor to the world in order to set up a website that filters global warming articles for people. In a few clicks I can get really scientific articles from very credentialed people on both sides of the issue, so I don’t know why we need another web site that says one side is totally right and the other side is totally wrong.
