Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Thankyou fluffy, you also dim wittedly make dr Lindzens point about the attempted demonization of him by the high priests of the global warming church, just like Mr Cook and his little blog

"The Cato Institute is an American libertarian think tank", Guess who your Dr Lindzen works for? Others have a different view of your Dr. "Climate misinformer: Richard Lindzen - Skeptical Science" ! Hmmmmmmmmmm you seem to have great faith in a person who obviously knows who butters his bread ! So the shoe is now on the other foot eh ?

Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.

Richard Lindzen

And right in cue Harry tries to assasinate the motives of Dr Lindzen with opinion pieces

Odd you see an agenda in tjose who dispute your religion yet none in thoses funded by govt seeking control. That makes you a bit of a fraud, but you know that

So Lindzen studies whether “public funding” of research has biased the science.

Maybe, but consider some private organizations who have researched global warming and who have the most to lose if we move away from fossil fuels. That would be the multinational oil giants like Shell, Exxon-Mobile, and BP.

The oil giants have concluded that CO2-induced climate change is a problem.

Let’s examine Lindzen’s function at the Cato Institute. Does he do scientific research there? No. Cato isn’t a scientific organization. It calls itself a “a public policy research organization.”

“At Cato, Dr. Lindzen focuses on the interaction between science and policymakers. He studies whether the move from largely private funding to public support has introduced biases into science and the public policies informed by science.”

Lindzen is retired from scientific research. He gets paid to espouse his political views. What could be more of a “political agenda” than that.

“When an issue becomes a vital part of a political agenda, as is the case with climate, then the politically desired position becomes a goal rather than a consequence of scientific research.”

And does Lindzen have a political agenda?

According to the Weekly Standard, yes.

“One frustrating feature of the climate debate is that people’s outlook on global warming usually correlates with their political views. So if a person wants low taxes and restrictions on abortion, he probably isn’t worried about climate change. And if a person supports gay marriage and raising the minimum wage, he most likely thinks the threat from global warming warrants costly public-policy remedies. And of course, even though Lindzen is an accomplished climate scientist, he has his own political outlook—a conservative one.”

"And I trust Lindzen’s word on the science more than I trust his word on the politics. He’s a scientist, not a politician."

GOOD. Glad you trust Dr Lindzen as a scientist, because only a scientists could accuratly claim the science is faulty and being manipulated.

Global Warming has become a religion,” writes Lindzen. “A surprisingly large number of people seem to have concluded that all that gives meaning to their lives is the belief that they are saving the planet by paying attention to their carbon footprint.” as Harry says. BINGO
