Praise Mao, and may the green party expropriate your entire paycheck to save the polar bears.
The Daily Mail reports:
Environmental scientist James Lovelock, renowned for his terrifying predictions of climate change’s deadly impact on the planet, has gone back on his previous claims, admitting they were ‘alarmist’.
The 92-year-old Briton, who also developed the Gaia theory of the Earth as a single organism, has said climate change is still happening – just not as quickly as he once warned.
He added that other environmental commentators, such as former vice president Al Gore, are also guilty of exaggerating their arguments.
The admission comes as a devastating blow to proponents of climate change who regard Lovelock as a powerful figurehead.
Five years ago, he had claimed: ‘Before this century is over billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.’
But in an interview with msnbc.com, he admitted: ‘I made a mistake.’
He said: ‘The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing,’ he told ‘We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear cut, but it hasn’t happened.
‘The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world.
‘[The temperature] has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising – carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that.’
One more scientist joins the growing ranks of the skeptics. Presently over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition that condemns the man-made global warming hypothesis. Signers include such luminaries as Edward Teller, the physicist (now deceased), who invented the hydrogen bomb.
Anyone who isn’t a reactionary alarmist that has taken the time to read through the Climategate emails and source code comments knows the entire thing is a gigantic farce, with scientists leaving out conflicting data from their models because it doesn’t support their hypothesis.
If you are still on the fence, read through the source code comments for yourself. Don’t believe the bullshit excuses put out by the CRU to explain away these comments. The code is explicit in its function. Conflicting data was left out of the models because it was contrary to alarmist views.
The Telegraph recently published a piece which highlights a litany of failure in alarmist theories about man made global warming that is worth reading as well. It notes the debunking of several alarmist propaganda papers that manipulated data to suit their agenda.
- The Earth is not getting warmer.
- The Sun dominates climate on Earth.
- Historical rises in temperature preceded rises in CO2.
- Computer models claiming to show CO2’s influence on climate have all been demonstrated to be flawed.
- Scientists have been caught red handed on numerous occasions leaving conflicting data out of models on purpose to skew results.
- CO2 has been steadily rising since it has been directly measured, yet temperatures have not risen.
- Tens of thousands of scientists reject the alarmist propaganda, there is no consensus.
