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.

"Lindzen is far more Learned that you will ever be."

In climate science, for sure. In political thought, I seriously doubt it. In fact, his sweeping generalizations show unsophisticated political thinking.

It's nice you can pick and choose what science you chose to believe, I call that fraudulent

Your failing is not seeing the bias in the studies you cite, of course you won't, it's a religion

And a very large majority of climate scientists, according to several studies, have analyzed the data and predicted anthropogenic global climate change will threaten infrastructure and crop yields in the future.

Every time you claim 97% agreement, you cite Mann's political lie

And if Michael Mann has a political outlook, that doesn't mean anything to me, either. I'd never quote Michael Mann the political commentator because I don't care about his political leanings.

Climate scientists aren't there to provide public policy prescriptions, which involves other areas of expertise like economics. Climate scientists are there to analyze physical data and make predictions about future warming.

I'd rather see Richard Lindzen be right than Michael Mann.

So Dr. Lindzen ventures into the political realm, as is his right in a free society, but we need to remember that expertise in one area doesn’t mean expertise in another.

I said earlier that Dr. Lindzen’s opinions merit serious consideration. I should make it clear that his scientific opinions merit consideration because he’s has the education and background to speak authoritatively.

However, I don’t factor Dr. Lindzen’s political leanings into my decision on whether to accept the conclusions of the large majority of climate scientists. He’s not credible in this area.
