Discussing the recent report by Sir Nicholas Stern on the economics of climate change, Lindzen says:
"The central theme of it is that there is a near universal consensus of opinion within the scientific community about the dangers of climate change. But this is not true.
There is no such unanimity among scientists."
Lindzen goes on to concisely debunk the current AGW hysteria, concluding that it is "completely divorced from scientific reality" and that "Like a religion, environmentalism is suffused with hatred for the material world and again, like religion, it requires devotion rather than intellectual rigour from its adherents."
Of course, Lindzen, a Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is no match for the warmies of Palo Alto, some of whom get their information directly from such irrefutable sources as Newsweek or even the Goracle himself.
