Richard Lindzen on Climate Change

What historians will definitely wonder about in future centuries is how deeply flawed logic, obscured by shrewd and unrelenting propaganda, actually enabled a coalition of powerful special interests to convince nearly everyone in the world that CO2 from human industry was a dangerous, planet-destroying toxin. It will be remembered as the greatest mass delusion in the history of the world – that CO2, the life of plants, was considered for a time to be a deadly poison.

Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century’s developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age.

  1. Thank you Richard. Hopefully this delusion will be discovered in this generation but I wouldn’t hold my Breath!
    As you probably know, the reason for this scam began a long time ago, but more recently lying “scientists” – I believe they were actually only geographers masquerading as scientists – devised an illusional model of the earth without greenhouse gasses. It is a weightless shell with neither soil nor air. On its sunny side, it re-radiates immediately all of the sun’s energy which it receives and on the other side its surface temperature is zero, 0.0 Kelvin (K) and thus -273 Celcius (C). From this spurious model, the IPCC’s EFFECTIVE EMISSION TEMPERATURE (EET) of 303 K is determined, being that uniform temperature (which the earth never has!!) that exactly and immediately re-radiates all sunlight.

    They then spread a new EET over the whole model which itself re-radiates the whole energy (which is only falling on the sunny side, would you believe) this EET being only 255 K (-18 C) because it is
    now magically occurring over twice the area for the same radiation!
    Thus to obtain the earth’s MEAN temperature of 288 K (15 C), they add an extra 33 C, assumed to be from CO2 and resultant extra water vapor feed back which, as green house gases, just manage to increase the temperature from 255 K to 288 K as measured. Marvellous stuff. But they have got away with it for nearly 100 years!!!!! John Nicol
