Top MIT scientist: Newest UN climate report is ‘hilariously’ flawed

The Daily Caller

Not all scientists are panicking about global warming — one of them finds the alarmism “hilarious.”

A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UN’s climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years.

“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot....

Have a heart, but have a brain too

You don't have a heart if you don't care about the impact on ourselves and our natural environment of trash, smoke from combustion (coal, petroleum, etc), ionizing radiation, toxic chemicals, noise, electromagnetic radiation.

But you don't have a brain if you think a global government - with unlimited power to control the behavior of every human being on the planet - will wisely manage the life support systems of our little blue marble in space. The actions of Monsanto are merely previews of what is being attempted.

Take a hint from the fact that a long-standing and prominent goal of globally-minded people is extra terrestrial travel and colonization. Their motivation is not "To boldly go ... ", it is to ensure the survival of the human race, well, their part of the human race, for eternity, because they are convinced the earth is doomed.

If any development has the potential to completely alter and destabilize the natural environment of our planet, it is a few power-mad lunatics in charge of everything on earth.

The only hope of salvation for the natural environment is that the globalists' schemes will implode now, taking down the fledgling global power structures before they have to chance to eradicate all local governance and self-rule.

Highly decentralized societies could thrive with a robust global peer-to-peer network, but that is a subject for another thread.

Patterns, patterns...

I am really not a big fan of argument by authority, but in the case of Lindzen, one has to admit his credentials and the scope of his research works, along with him being bravely outspoken for a good while in the politically incorrect direction makes you wonder:

By analogy, I know of someone who hasn't been afraid to scream, pretty much alone in the wilderness since 1971, that good chances are in fact the really opaque affairs of the Federal Reserve would be nothing but all about a gigantic Ponzi scheme of worldwide scale - no matter what the mainstream Keynesian academia would "teach" the populace about otherwise.

Ah, patterns, patterns of human awareness in history...

Remember also, sciences VERY rarely progress with only the opinion of the majority ANYWAY, to say the least...

Just ask Ptolemee, or Copernic, or Newton, or Einstein, or... etc.

"Just sayin'."

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I do not care about the

I do not care about the argument.

However, I do care about the environment. I want to live in a place with trees and without pollution. If someone is going to impose that externality on me - and on other people - they should ask us first or pay for it.

It goes against my liberty and other people's liberty if someone decides to start polluting a day regardless of the argument. It is the same as if somebody put a bunch of trash in my backyard. So, global warming or not, polluters are infringing upon my and other people's liberties.

And BTW, I fully agree with another comment down below:
"the collapse of local and national governance and the rise of a strong global state would be the most profound and harmful man made change in history."

Of Course

... Well said. Centralized political 'solutions' promote distortions and rackets. The answer is personal property rights and enforceable private remedies.

We will scratch this man-made

We will scratch this man-made climate change scam off the list of manufactured blame man for everything this coming winter. Freezing conditions will kill thousands in the northern hemisphere and the body bag count will be huge.

I'm not concerned about the facts of climate change

Whatever they are, I don't care about the facts of climate change, even if they are caused by human activity. If the climate changes I will adapt, as will every person living on earth. We are human, that's what we do.

What I object to is the second part of the climate debate:

Part 1) The earth is getting warmer! Oh, no, it's getting colder! Oh, whatever the climate is CHANGING and people are causing it!

Part 2) Because the climate is changing, global control over human activities must be established and given the power to force compliance.

Like I said; Part 1 is simply the next chapter in a history that has seen dramatic changes. Part 2 is a tactic in the ongoing effort to reduce or eliminate local or national governance and centralize and empower global control.

If the problem is man made changes to the environment in which we live, the collapse of local and national governance and the rise of a strong global state would be the most profound and harmful man made change in history.

I can't do anything about climate change but I can and do oppose globalization.
