When last we left Seth “Full Disclosure” Borenstein, the AP reporter was “investigating” those Climategate emails — messages written by scientists Seth seems pretty chummy with.

Alas, being on a first name basis with the “experts” responsible for pulling off the fraud of the century doesn’t even get you a cup of coffee these days. And Seth could have used one in Copenhagen.

The organizers of that global warming conference believe they’re smart enough to run the planet. But evidently, they couldn’t “even figure out that 45,000 people won’t into a 15,000 person building.”

So Seth was left — wait for it — out in the cold:

With U.N. security letting in only those cleared last week, hundreds of accredited delegates, journalists and NGO representatives were left to stand for hours in near-freezing temperatures before being let through. “It was crazy,” AP’s Seth Borenstein said. “You couldn’t leave the line. You couldn’t go to the bathroom, you couldn’t eat. (…)

Seth himself stepped into the line at 7:55 a.m. and was through at 3:15 p.m., but only after another AP reporter, John Heilprin, “saved my bacon” by persuading a U.N. security guard to go out and fetch him.

It looks like the New York Times chief “global warming” cheerleader, “Andy” Revkin, didn’t have any trouble getting into the conference, even though he was dressed down by one of his close personal friends a major “global warming” scientist last week for daring to make a joke about it.

As I asked last week:

[H]ow stupid do you have to be, if you’re a “global warming” scientist who now needs all the allies he can get, to pick that reason, at this moment, to “cut off” your most loyal supporter at the biggest (and still, for some reason, most influential) newspaper in the world?

Ooops. Turns out that, for reasons that remain unclear, Revkin’s decided to take a buyout and will be leaving the New York Times as of Monday.  So the warmers have lost one their biggest MSM supporters.

Once he gets the feeling back in his extremities, I’ll bet Seth will be polishing up his resume. Revkin’s departure affords Borenstein a once in a lifetime chance to become the Walter Duranty of Weather.

PS: I’ve been saying all along throughout Climaquiddick — it’s not the emails, it’s the data. Now a global warming believer has checked out the code used to calculate those doomsday climate change projections and…
