Climategate 2.0: Revkin works for the alarmists

New York Times climate reporter Andy Revkin fooled a lot of skeptics into thinking he was open-minded — not us.

From the Climategate 2.0 collection, Revkin writes to MIT’s Ronald Prinn,

some blogging and my responses below, related to the ‘climate middle’ story (huffington and grist essentially same. huffington response had to be abridged for space). something for everyone.. a key take-home point, please, is that this story was written mainly for the benefit of the 10s of millions of disengaged or doubtful or simply under-edcuated Americans out there for whom it is NEWS that the only discourse now is among folks who believe human-forced climate change is a huge problem. (as jim hansen said in my story, exclamation point included!) the ‘hotter’ voices are doing their job well. i’m doing mine.

There are those stupid Americans again.

Revkin’s full e-mail is below.
