    Geez Wolram, where did you find that one? Meanwhile be assured that the author, Prof Richard Lindzen will be lynched for his boldness withstanding political correctness.

    Lindzen had a cameo in the documentary The Great Global Warming Swindle

    I think I will move this to the social sciences forum.

    Isn't it interesting that Climate Science debate doesn't seem to be Science.
    I thought the Enlightenment was the start of the separation of Scientific pursuits of knowledge and the separation of Politics and Religion out of hard Science. Or not.

    Anyway, looks like we're in retrograde motion in this discipline/thread.

    Right, I think that Richard Lindzen was a bit premature, exposing the 'motives' for climate scaremongering before reality has proven long enough for everybody to feel that's it's not warming at all. This way it resembles the skeptics oil company bribe myth.

    Anyway, we can only hope to learn from it next time that we cannot afford biased science for decision making.
