NYT still quoting denialist Christy

In "Weather Runs Hot and Cold, So Scientists Look to the Ice" the NYT reaches into their old files and includes rhetoric of climate denialist John Christy to provide some (false) "balance" to this story. Back in 2005 I submitted two open letters to the NYT ombudsman requesting this paper stop quoting Christy - whose controversial work had been overturned (Christy was also featured in my paper "Climate of Scepticism"). There have been many recent stories on extreme weather around the globe - compare this NYT story with Reuters "Link builds between weather extremes and warming."
