I'm beginning to feel sorry for Andrew "Andy" Revkin, Senior Climate Alarmist at The New York Times. He does not emerge well from his chummy e-mails with the Settled Science enforcers ("You took the words right out of my mouth"), and evidently he resents the notion that he was merely a willing dupe: ...
So the other day he makes the briefest of references to the news that during the upcoming Copenhagen shakindownen the city's prostitutes will be offering their services free to "climate campaigners". He eschewed the cheap jests - nothing in there about what to do if you're a climate scientist and it's not just the temperature rising; no jokes about letting you sample her tree rings. Nonetheless, even the mere mention of this story from the Euro-press prompted Professor Michael Schlesinger, Head of Warm-Mongering at the University of Illinois, to take the metaphorical tire-iron to Revkin's legs:
Shame on you for this gutter reportage.
This is the second time this week I have written you thereon, the first about giving space in your blog to the Pielkes.
The vibe that I am getting from here, there and everywhere is that your reportage is very worrisome to most climate scientists... I sense that you are about to experience the 'Big Cutoff' from those of us who believe we can no longer trust you, me included.
Unbelievable and unacceptable.
And then, as an exit ...
Another Case of PTSD?
...and this time the poor guy's not even in the military! From Channel 12 WBNG:
A Binghamton University professor is dead tonight after being stabbed by an anthropology student.
That's one way of putting it. Another is that Abdulsalam Al-Zahrani killed Richard T Antoun, author of Understanding Fundamentalism: Christian, Islamic and Jewish Movements.
