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.

“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.

The growing number of failed predictions from alleged global warming experts has only cooled the public’s belief in recent months.

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.

The one thing to know is, they don't have any facts to support their socialist dogma. That is why they are so nasty

"Who makes money with the lies? Easy, easy, easy. The climate changers who are making movies and TV shows,writing books, selling stuff (even t shirts)."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!

Reeeeeeallllly?

LOL!

You say that while the little fact that those who run the campaigns and other forms of support for rightwing politicians and policies take your money and run with it. Which is provable by their very own tax forms. The vast majority of money they raise goes into expenses with less the 10% in a lot of cases going toward the actual cause.

Whats funny is that they know exactly what to say and what fears to coddle to get you to toss your money at them.

LOL!

Stillhere, I didn't say he had a "conservative political outlook." That was the Weekly Standard.

Useful idiots on full display.

There is a preponderance of evidence that states just the opposite of your opinion , so why should I believe some right-wing whacko over research that is credible ?

Ohwiseone

I'm sorry thinkie but that's not really an answer !So you think people will make millions selling books or giving speeches ? There are speeches given everyday by a multitude of people , even the idiot dubya , so why does this one issue bother you and your overseers so much ?

Ohwiseone

You righties still haven't answered this question !Who is going to make money and how are they earning it ,by warning folks that we need to take care of our planet and the Arctic has lost about 70% of its total volume of sea ice over the past three decades. ?

I KNOW you are a slave to science right Harry?

Ok Harry, he is worthy when he agrees with you lol ok he's the one with the agenda sure,

You should answer your own ideotic question. No warning is going on. It is fraud and lies.

Who makes money with the lies? Easy, easy, easy. The climate changers who are making movies and TV shows,writing books, selling stuff (even t shirts).

The radical warmers who get enormous fees for speaking at colleges and money making tours. Lawyers like Bobby Kennedy Jr.The wacky college professors and pseudo scientists who get huge grants for fake studies and programs. The green businesses that rake in billions of our dollars before they go belly up..

And we can't forget the politcians who scare people to get elected and rich.

Second problem: Lindzen’s confident predictions that global warming will cause no harm. The Weekly Standard reports:

“Lindzen also disputes the accuracy of the computer models that climate scientists rely on to project future temperatures. He contends that they oversimplify the vast complexity of the Earth’s climate and, moreover, that it’s impossible to untangle man’s effect on the climate from natural variability.”

The climate IS complex, but here’s Lindzen’s problem: If it’s “impossible to untangle man’s effect on the climate from natural variability,” how can Lindzen predict that global warming will result in no harm?

Lindzen contradicts himself.

If predictions are impossible, why are Lindzen’s own predictions any better than the predictions of the majority of other climate scientists? Again, Lindzen behaves like those he criticizes.

First problem: The Weekly Standard shows Lindzen’s political bias.

“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. “

So, while Lindzen accuses others of having a political agenda, he has one himself. He’s behaving like those he criticizes.

Dr. Lindzen is worthy of serious consideration. For example,

“Lindzen doesn’t deny that the climate has changed or that the planet has warmed. ‘We all agree that temperature has increased since 1800,’ he tells me. There’s a caveat, though: It’s increased by ‘a very small amount. We’re talking about tenths of a degree [Celsius]. We all agree that CO2 is a greenhouse gas. All other things kept equal, [there has been] some warming. As a result, there’s hardly anyone serious who says that man has no role. And in many ways, those have never been the questions. The questions have always been, as they ought to be in science, how much?’”

But I have two problems with Lindzen: I think he lets his political agenda color his thinking and I wonder about his predictions. In both of these areas, Lindzen behaves a lot like those whom he criticizes.
