"The Big Cutoff:" Another Climate Email Exposed

This one not hacked, but sent to a hostile party. Who promptly published it.

Andrew Revkin is so beloved by the CRU warmists they fondly call him "Andy" in their emails. He's also the guy who refused to publish these disgusting hacked emails on his... um, climate blog, which you'd think could at least print a few so that his readers would understand the hottest climate story in the world.

So he's on the team. Bought and paid for, but not bought and paid for; just owned, by personal choice.

But in a blog post, he mentioned Copenhagen prostitutes offering "green" conference-goers free sex (once again, the dime drops that maybe we're on the wrong team here: nothin' but fondue and sodomy over on that side), and also mentioned a bit of the ClimateGate controversy, including the "tribalism" some of the CRU crew stand accused of.

So: This guy is on the team. He'd basically offer Al Gore a free hand release himself, except that he doesn't want to be sweated on by a husky hick. But he mentioned ClimateGate.

And for that, he gets this blistering rebuke and threat from cultist professor Michael Schlesinger of the University of Illinois.

Copenhagen prostitutes?
Climate prostitutes?
Shame on you for this gutter reportage. [Emphasis added.]
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.
Of course, your blog is your blog.
But, 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. [Emphasis added.]
Copenhagen prostitutes?
Unbelievable and unacceptable.
What are you doing and why?

What is he doing? He's reporting facts. Professor Schlesinger ought to give it a try and see if it suits him.

"The Big Cutoff" refers, of course, to an end of the tips, free quotes, free background stuff, etc., that the climate-mongers have been offering Revkin. In other words, they're threatening to blacklist him from their rolodexes and no longer return his calls, leaving him a reporter without sources in the field he's supposed to be covering. (And doing a poor job of it even with those sources, note.)

Glad to see there's none of that "tribalism" among this claque! Good to put that particular false rumor to bed!

Meanwhile, this article at American Thinker by Marc Sheppard explains the "hide the decline" and the Medieval Warm Period and why thew warmists are so determined to kill it, and, well, lots of stuff. Another must-read piece.

The piece LauraW. linked earlier exposes a whole new area of shenanigans, too.

Update: Via Hot Air, Hmmmm...: Did Russian spies hack and leak the HARRY_READ_ME file to sabotage Copenhagen?

Note: I originally wrote the email was "leaked" but realize now that is inaccurate and misleading: Steven Hayward is on the circulation list, and published it on his blog, stating that he was doing so. This doesn't seem to be a "leak," as that implies a stealthy, anonymous revealer, so that word seems wrong.
