A leading climate change figure has come out against the governments continued and ridiculous climate change hysteria.
Speaking in regards to Massachusetts new $50 million climate change proposal, MIT Professor Richard Lindzen, a leading figure in the climate change movement, pointed out the absurdity of blaming every weather event on global warming and climate change.
The changes that have occurred due to global warning are too small to account for, Lindzen told WBZ-TV. It has nothing to do with global warming, it has to do with where we live.
Although supporting the theory of man-made global warming, Lindzen admitted that rhetoric from the political class and green movement has been nothing more than over-the-top catastrophism.
Even many of the people who are supportive of sounding the global warning alarm, back off from catastrophism, Lindzen said. Its the politicians and the green movement that like to portray catastrophe.
Even more surprising, Lindzen goes on to point out the governments obvious use of climate change alarmism to push greater state control, even warning over politicians use of crony capitalism.
Global warming, climate change, all these things are just a dream come true for politicians. The opportunities for taxation, for policies, for control, for crony capitalism are just immense, you can see their eyes bulge, Lindzen said.
Lindzen has frequently been attacked by climate alarmists for refusing to give into political pressures regarding climate sThe growing number of failed predictions from the global warming crowd has only cooled the publics belief in recent years.
From 2007 to 2009, Al Gore hysterically warned that the North Pole would be completely ice-free by 2013. Instead, 2013 experienced record breaking cold and major growth in Arctic ice.
Similarly, Gore made desperate warnings over the danger of increased hurricanes during the same time period. Soon after, climate scientists had trouble explaining the record low hurricanes that soon followed.
In his 1992 book Earth in the Balance, Gore went on to claim that global warming would soon wipe coastal areas of Florida off the map in as little as a few decades. Sea level statistics taken 18 years later revealed Gores predictions to be completely inaccurate.
White House Science Adviser John P. Holdren, who made failed predictions of global cooling in his 1977 book Ecoscience, attempted to blame the recent polar vortex on global warming. Researchers soon uncovered a 1974 Time Magazine article that blamed a cold polar vortex on global cooling instead.
Climate change alarmists have become so crazed in their beliefs that some have attempted to equate skepticism with racism, claiming any denial of global warming is a sickness in need of treatment.
Unsurprisingly, major environmental issues such as the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster seem to be completely ignored by Gore and company. Given the massive amount of money Al Gore has continued to make from generating climate fear, it seems unlikely that any real disaster unable to generate cash will receive proper attention.
Hope he has tenure.
Hubby just told me about a publisher, Copernicus, that published a peer reviewed journal called "Patterns in Physics". 15 or so scientists contributed to an article in that journal that expressed skepticism in the IPCC report on AGW, and Copernicus shut the journal down! The publisher said it would not be associated with people who held those ideas! I'm surprised they didn't use the term, 'deniers'.
Sad, what has happened to REAL science; it has devolved into doing what you have to do to get research grants.
The tide is turning. As promised by Obama. Oceans have stopped rising.
I started college in 72 then it was all about a new ice age on the way. I wish they would just shut the hell up. Course there is more money in scaring the crap out of folks. Doesn’t it seem amazing how easy it is to generate fear of anything in the American people? Maybe Holder was right, we are a nation of cowards.
” - - - Maybe Holder was right, we are a nation of cowards. - - - “
A coward is anyone who will not stand up and fight a bully.
Boehner is a coward.
BTW, “Climate Change is sooooooooo 2013!
All the rage now is “Weather Change!”
Sometimes the weather changes a couple times an hour!
Climate Change—Global Warming—the Alar of the 21st Century—was a con from the get go. It was a way to make lots of money. Just look at Al Gore’s house and jets?
There’s no doubt that man’s activities have some sort of effect on climate. Man-made climate change is fact. However, this doesn’t mean that man’s activities are the predominate or even a significant cause for climate change. Regardless, I absolutely refuse to fundamentally change the quality of my life—reduced to living in an Agenda 21 eco-cube in a tightly packed mega-city and using mass transit or a car so small as to be little more than a plastic enclosed tricycle—on the mere chance that the global mean temperature might rise a couple degrees over the next century.
In the same speech in which he warned of the military-industrial complex, Eisenhower also warned of the combination of Big Government and Big Science. Here we see why.
1. Where are the scientific equipment calibration certification documents for each and every sensor used to derive said numbers over the time span of the collection sampling?
2. Are all the calibration certifications verifiable and not possible to be altered by any source once the certifications are sealed?
3. For the data from these calibrated sensors, demonstrate the chain of custody that is unalterable from the sensor, its time and date, to the output final documents (charts, graphs, tables). The data must be verifiable as unchanged, accurate and true by any and all that investigate the data. This includes surprise inspections.
If workers are required to work under these condition inside a nuke plant (and they are) why should data that supposedly affects the entire Earth in one way or another not be held to the same scrutiny?
Yes, I do believe people will lie, cheat, steal do whatever they can to advance their religion. It is normal human nature to resort to hysterics, exaggeration, embellishments if they sense opposition to their god or ego feeding trough.
Our stupid/insane government make billions of $$$$$ in grants available to scientists to study climate change. I venture to guess that there are numerous “experts” who have been receiving very large grants for many, many years. As long as it is in people’s personal financial interest to continue the promotion of climate change, they will continue to do so. Admitting that they were wrong means losing income, big income!
Next week the Messiah will part the oceans. With any luck he’ll walk in and then they’ll collapse on him.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
We need a wall of separation between science and state. Most “scientists “ do nothing involving the scientific method.
“Course there is more money in scaring the crap out of folks.”
But much worse is the indoctrination into the enviro-nazis cult of our children in not only public, but most private schools. They foist their bleak doctrine of the distraction of planet earth onto the children beginning in preschool, telling them they are responsible for the impending death of poor defenseless animals around the world. No wonder so many children are suffering depression and many are suicidal by the time they reach their teenage years. This psychological terrorism inflicted on children for the financial gain of the enviro-cultists should be outlawed.
That should be “destruction” of planet earth....Apple just thinks it knows what I want to type.
My favorite line...
