"This is a blatant attempt to stop journalists doing journalism and asking hard questions."

UN Security Stops Journalist’s Questions About ClimateGate
A Stanford Professor has used United Nation security officers to silence a journalist asking him “inconvenient questions” during a press briefing at the climate change conference in Copenhagen.

Professor Stephen Schneider’s assistant requested armed UN security officers who held film maker Phelim McAleer, ordered him to stop filming and prevented further questioning after the press conference where the Stanford academic was launching a book.
These guys can't even answer a few tough questions from the media, is it any wonder that they get apoplectic at the thought of legitimate scrutiny of their work by critical scientists?
