    "For decades, his advocacy of nuclear power appalled fellow environmentalists - but recently increasing numbers of them have come around to his way of thinking. His latest book, The Revenge of Gaia, predicts that by 2020 extreme weather will be the norm, causing global devastation; that by 2040 much of Europe will be Saharan; and parts of London will be underwater. The most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report deploys less dramatic language - but its calculations aren't a million miles away from his."

    Lovelock is an absolute attention whore...right up there with Hansen, Mann and Al Gore Whore.

    Here he is in 2012 saying all the dire predictions are overblown...

    http://news.yahoo.com/gaia-scientist...BSRFVTMDFfMQ--

    A scientist and author, James Lovelock, who once predicted doomsdaylike fallout from climate change has backtracked, calling his own projections and those of others "alarmist." Even so, climate scientists stress Lovelock's backtracking doesn't negate the reality of climate change, and in fact, his past predictions highlight some overall misunderstanding about planetary warming.

    Go James go...

    In a conversation with MSNBC's Ian Johnston, Lovelock agreed that the level of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is rising, but contended that temperature has not increased as expected since 2000.

    This is a significant reversal for Lovelock. In a column written for the U.K. newspaper The Independent in 2006, he wrote, "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."

    Lovelock's views were not in line with mainstream climate science to begin with, Michael Mann, a Pennsylvania State University climate scientist Michael Mann

    Here's the reality...

    The fucking asshole (Lovelock) needed funding monies.

    How do you get it in today's "climate"?

    That's right you fucking smartass Wake Forest boys...you just run to the nearest roof top and shout cataclysm - just like the fucking hack and his contemporaries did when they all screamed "No arctic ice caps by 2010!!!"

    These mfuckers are the Worst

    These folks should just join up with the 7th Day Adventists... They can join them in consistently making wild claims for the"END Times" and then move the goal posts when the Predictions turn into the bogus horseshit they always were.

    http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2...te-change?lite

    James Lovelock, the maverick scientist who became a guru to the environmental movement with his “Gaia” theory of the Earth as a single organism, has admitted to being “alarmist” about climate change and says other environmental commentators, such as Al Gore, were too.
    Lovelock, 92, is writing a new book in which he will say climate change is still happening, but not as quickly as he once feared.

    And look, the motherfucker is 94 years old today.what kind of derision he'd be greeted with if he were a "Denier"...

    Good job Lovelock, your legacy is secure as a certifiable fucking NUT.

    Lectro loves it when elderly scientists say stuff.

    I love it when jerk off Wake Forest kids get all assed up over ageism, sexism, racism etc., but only when it suits their "Uncle Thomas-ness"

    I don't think you do. I think it actually touches a nerve because you're stupid. And no matter how hard you try and how late you stay up reading bogus articles on the Internet, you know deep down inside that you're a clown, always will be, and always will be regarded as such by a bunch of strangers.

    ...and here I thought science had disproven the myth of the 'miniature pissant'

    I'm glad we found you, double aught.

    Yeah, we're not glad you found these boards. You're a joke.

    This shows why the US can't have a sensible energy policy. 24 House Republicans, who are on the Energy Committee deny the existence of Climate Change http://thinkprogress.org/climate/201...limate-change/

    97% of Scientists say there is. House yahoos say there isn't.

    Richard Lindzen, Prof. of Meteorology @ MIT, Atmospheric Pysicist and LEAD AUTHOR of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC 3)

    One of literally thousands of noted scientists who regard the actual statistical changes as much ado about nothing.

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=uu9fprxnkEI

    The alarmist position is equivalent to taking exceptionally small statistical changes -- with all manner of fudging factors (aerosols) and extrapolating distant scenarios.

    A return to a "belief" in omens.

    This is not true. A simple google search shows it false.

    Lindzen is total fraud and whore. He testified to Congress on behalf of the tobacco industry that second hand smoke was not harmful, because they paid him to say so.

    No kidding...here is Prof Lindzen's Wiki entry:

    Richard Siegmund Lindzen (born February 8, 1940) is an American atmospheric physicist, known for his work in the dynamics of the middle atmosphere, atmospheric tides and ozone photochemistry. He has published more than 200 scientific papers and books. From 1983,[1] until he retired in 2013, he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[2] He was a lead author of Chapter 7, 'Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,' of the IPCC Third Assessment Report on climate change. He has criticized the scientific consensus about climate change[3] and what he states are political pressures on climate scientists to conform to what he has called climate alarmism.[4]

    Here's a recent article about Lindzen:

    http://www.theguardian.com/environme...nge-scepticism

    "In the end, the Weekly Standard piece revisits comparisons between Lindzen and Galileo. There's one major difference between the two: Galileo was right. His positions were based on and supported by scientific evidence, and they withstood scientific scrutiny and the test of time. Other scientists at the time also recognized that Galileo was right. On the contrary, Lindzen is an outlier whose arguments have been disproved time and time again, including about the link between smoking and lung cancer."

    What a load of shit. I invite anybody out here to investigate Richard Lindzen and see for themselves. Or, you can rely on RJR's word that this guy is an "Uncle Thomas" for the tobacco industry.

    Simple as that.
