Threatening Reporters with the “Big Cutoff”

University of Illinois climate scientist Michael Schlesinger threatens the NYT‘s Andrew Revkin with “the Big Cutoff” because he quotes and interviews the wrong people.  According to Schlesinger, this makes Revkin’s reporting “very worrisome to most climate scientists.”  Revkin’s offenses?  Noting that some Copenhagen prostitutes promised to give freebies to climate conference delegates (“gutter reportage”) and “giving space in [his] blog to the Pielke” [climatologist Roger Pielke Sr. and environmental studies professor Roger Pielke Jr.]  Pielke Jr. comments:

You’d think that after the actions of certain activist scientists to suppress certain perspectives was revealed in the CRU emails that there would be a little bit more self-awareness in this community.
