    climate denial propaganda are the ones who are holding on to the profits they are making from wrecking the planet.
    No wonder there aren't more whistle blowers..wrath from both sides...geez.

    Gleick has legal and probably physical dangers now. I'm sure his attorneys are in agreement with the apology and may have advised it.

    •  we don't know that, do we? (0+ / 0-)

      It's not as if he prefaced that remark with "....my lawyers have advised me...."

      Now what happens is that the enemy gets to make HIM the issue.  

      That's called snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

      As for physical danger, if that's the issue he shouldn't have come out and claimed responsibility for the leak.  

      Sorry, but I think we have the right to expect more from the presidents of well-funded nonprofits, for example leadership rather than duck-and-cover.

      •  we know that he has legal counsel...it stands to (0+ / 0-)

        reason that if you have legal counsel you use their advice.  It's doubtful he would go against their advise...they wouldn't represent him.   The enemy gets to make it an issue if we don't have his back.   We become our own enemy.   I think he handled it perfectly.  

        •  so here's what I did. (0+ / 0-)

          I just wrote to Michael Mann, he of the hockey-stick curve, asking him to please tell Gleick to go into warrior mode and pull his apology.

          I also asked Mann to tell me in blunt language if I'm "not even wrong" about this.  Presumably he of all people would be in a position to know if there was something more at work here than an ill-considered retreat.  

          So we'll see what happens, and the outcome will be reflected in my further posts about this.
