Thanks for replying.
Of course, when doing my homework, I spent a meaningful time at the skeptical science website. I did not address them directly, because in my understanding the problem is with politics and money. The big money guys make the most profit on lending money to governments. In the past, governments borrowed money mostly for wars. Now wars are not in fashion. After about trillion dollars (no one knows for sure, but that number is mentioned by many) sunk in Afghanistan and Iraq, Americans have no taste for new wars. Climate change scare came handy. Advocates as you and Dr. Cook are being manipulated by money much bigger than the fossil fuels interests.
