The seething anger directed at Andy Revkin (and the NYT) from climate scientists and climate advocates continues to amaze me. On Saturday, Eric Steig at Real Climate vented through gritted teeth. On Sunday, Joe Romm got back in touch with his old self and let it rip. That same day, we saw the, ahem, unauthorized disclosure of an email from Michael Schlesinger, who warned Revkin that he was in danger of being shunned by climate scientists for his "gutter reportage." One of Andy's supposed transgressions is that he's been quoting too much from Pielke Sr. and Pielke Jr. of late. So if that's really it, which is quite an incredible charge, then I can only imagine the paroxysms triggered by today's NYT story co-authored by Andy. The piece not only dares to again reference a Pielke, but it also dares to suggest that "climateagate" may complicate the Copenhagen talks. I have a feeling that this story will gall some especially for its timing--it comes on the summit's opening day.
