"Your resident dummy reviewer... [referring to himself]"
- Peter Miesler, Skeptical Science Forums
Peter Miesler ("Pete the Carpenter") is a brain-dead stoner / framing carpenter with a high school diploma who likes to spam emotional and unsubstantiated nonsense around the Internet under the username 'citizenschallenge'.
Pete was born in Münster, Germany on July 1, 1955, moved to Burlingame, California in 1968, graduated from Burlingame high school in 1973, had a "spiritual re-birth" at Yosemite National Park in 1974 and moved to Colorado in 1979 where he spent two decades honing his "scientific" knowledge working at restaurants before moving to the scientific big leagues as a day laborer, yet wound up filing for divorce in 2012.
When Pete is not contributing to deforestation, he spews a horrendously formatted troll blog named "What'sUpWithThatWatts, et al." that was originally created to stalk and harass skeptical meteorologist Anthony Watts but is now used to smear anyone who disagrees with his alarmist ideology. Pete's scientific "credentials" include learning about global warming in a 1970's high school science class and being a registered Democrat.
Unfortunately, Pete's limited education and intellect prevents him from being able to defend the lies, misinformation and strawman arguments he spams on his blog. His debating skills amount to copying and pasting results from amateur Google searches without reading them, fabricating conspiratorial delusions that support his emotional positions and then censoring fact-based comments that refute all of the nonsense he spams.
Pete is incapable of debating anyone where they can actually reply without being censored or having their comments hacked up and edited. When he does respond it often includes incoherent gibberish, which is a telltale sign of marijuana induced brain damage, making any such interaction futile.
While other alarmists try and smear skeptics as "Holocaust deniers", ironically Pete's late father Dieter Werner Miesler actually fought for the Nazis - something cartoonist John Cook at Skeptical Science can only dream of.
