Left foot forward, a blog for communists I guess, has a new thread which discusses the Air Vent. Apparently they commissioned a research group to discuss the release of climategate emails. You can see the little tiny ball they gave the Air Vent as a link to other blogs. Of course they labeled the links all wrong and placed tAV at the farthest reaches.
This is how they describe us Air Vent bloggers.
Tracing the online paper trail back to its source, the researchers concluded that:
• The ‘Climategate’ story was first aired on climate denier blog The Air Vent, before wending its way onto more popular sceptic sites Climate Audit and Watts Up With That, and then featured by James Delingpole in his Daily Telegraph blog – whose followers propagated it further;
Again with the denialist name calling, TAV DOES NOT DENY GLOBAL WARMING!! Jackasses, but look at the links. They rightly linked to the blackboard, oddly linked to nofrakkingconsensus or noconsensus.org , which I believe started after tAV and actually I’ve had very little contact with. Oddly there are no links whatsoever to CA or WUWT, whomever released the climategate files was very familiar with the odd position this blog took in the pile, better than these internet pro’s. Prior to climategate, most of the traffic here was the CA crowd. More CA readers came than even WUWT readers despite being in both blogrolls. Now WUWT leads the pack. No link to Bishop Hill either, despite that being one of the first links on the blogroll.
Anyway, it’s interesting how they try to define the history for the benefit of others. It’s odd that they wouldn’t send an email to ask a question but I suspect it’s my political posts which have changed me (and you) from a reasonable skeptic crowd to evil denialists. Sorryish for that readers.
If you feel like helping them get their story straight, here is the link. I couldn’t leave a comment there myself because the comment link wouldn’t work.
