Cook's Crook Rooks

Like most languages, the Australian language has some unique slang phrases. After reading the following linked piece, two come to mind.
Crook - bad, inferior;(link);Rooks – Know it all (link) (“He thinks he’s a bit of a Rooks, but he couldn’t tip the winner to save himself”)
So the title above refers to (John) Cook's bad, inferior know it all misinformation.

A piece in the Australian: (link)

Climate change like atom bomb: scientists

THE planet has been building up temperatures at the rate of four Hiroshima bombs of heat every second, and it's all our fault, say climate scientists.     
Ole Humlum's Climate4You May 2013
The 5 major global  temperature sources averaged.
Does that look like 4 atom bomb/second?

Can it be true? Has science told us that the global temperature has been statistically level for - from17 to 23 years? (link) and (link) and (Link)
Humans are emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than any other time in history, says John Cook, Climate Communication Fellow from the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland.
Well, John, where is the proof that CO2 causes warming. Science has established that temperature rise causes warming and not the other way around.
"All these heat-trapping greenhouse gases in our atmosphere mean ... our planet has been building up heat at the rate of about four Hiroshima bombs every second - consider that going continuously for several decades."
Several decades? IS that 20 years, John? Read that last link above, Two extracts:
The Met Office, one of the top cheerleaders for the man-made climate change camp, said global temperatures are likely to be lower than it forecast in December 2011.
Dr Benny Peiser said: “These figures show that in all likelihood we will have had no warming in the past 20 years.
Twenty Years, Cookie. Is that close to two decades?

Mr Cook said:
Warmer air holds more water, so Australia will experience heavier rainfall in wetter areas, while dry regions are becoming drier. 
Hang on there, Cookie, didn't Australia's $180,000 part time Panasonic Climate Commissioner Tim Flannery say that global warming was draining our dams?
"Even the rain that falls isn't actually going to fill our dams and river systems," (link)
Is that one of Flannery's Crook Rooks?  Or is all your talk at the Climate Action Summit in fact Cook's Crook Rooks?

John, I am NOT a climate scientist, but then again, neither are you:

The (UN)SkepticalScience website itself has a bio of Cook which includes this line: “He is not a climate scientist.”
Did you get your "atom bomb" idiocy from Stanford? (Link) Because that was all shot down in flames HERE.

(Shooting down an atom bomb in flames? Sorry for the mixed metaphors!)
