Hilarious “gotcha” by @junkscience: Journalist focused on climate “acknowledged” contact with climate scientists. Steve Milloy says this is ”evidence of Revkin’s special status within the group.” I say it’s evidence of my 25-year focus on climate science, even as other journalists snored.
Update: Milloy doubles down, looking back at “climategate 2.0”..
Anthony @Wattsupwiththat asks if my self description as climate activist in @drgrist tweet undercuts my cred:
When you tweeted this to David Roberts…
“I’m totally hopeful actually, and I consider myself a climate activist.”…don’t you think your role as a self proclaimed climate activist compromises your objectivity as a reporter for climate issues? - Anthony Watts
Here’s my reply:
Nope. See this post. My activism is directed at revealing reality.
