I am working on a summary post of the new batch of climategate emails, but this is perhaps my favorite. It is written to Andy Revkin, nominally a reporter for the NY Times but revealed by the new emails to be pretty much the unpaid PR agent of Michael Mann and company. Over and over, emails from Mann and his cohorts get Revkin to write the articles they want, drop quotes from skeptics from articles, and in general coordinate communications policy.
I think the notion of telling the public to prepare for both global warming and an ice age at the same [time] creates a real public relations problem for us.
Amazing that this actually had to be said.
Update: Revkin is currently an opinion blogger but at the time of the emails he was supposed to be a news reporter at the NYT.
