“The godfather of global warming lowers the boom on climate change” says the subtitle of an article in the Canadian paper, the TORONTO SUN.
Two months back, James Lovelock who was an original global warming “alarmist” gave an interview; he has changed his mind and his tune about global warming.
Lovelock is not a scientist (like so many global warming alarmists) but had a degree in political science. He is an academic person.
A paragraph from the TORONTO SUN article says…
“Having observed that global temperatures since the turn of the millenium have not gone up as climate models predicted they would, Lovelock acknowledged the changes in global warming patterns over nearly 20 years….not warming as fast as the alarmists thought it would. ”
Lovelock gave an interview to the UK GUARDIAN newspaper and delivered some bombshells that are sure to anger the global warming alarmists and the global “green movemement”. The Apopocalyptic view that mankind would die from global warming and climate change by the end of the century is not favored any more by James Lovelock who has seen the error of his ways re. global warming.
He acknowledges that “antropogenic” global warming is occurring….as it has through many cycles over the earth’s long history. He now says that doomsday predictions like he made are not valid…he was as alarmist as Al Gore at one point in the past.
Lovelock is a long time advocate for using natural gas as a fuel; he is now in favor of natural gas “fracking” to get more of it out of the earth….a method that drives the hard – core environmentalists crazy.
Some thoughts from Lovelock revealed in the GUARDIAN Interview:
1. Lovelock is a long time supporter of nuclear power as a way to lower greenhouse gas emissions which is not the way the radical Green Environmentalists would go. Lovelock advocates fracking for natural gas now.
2.Lovelock blasted “greens” for treating global warming like a religion.
3. Lovelock mocks the idea that modern economies can be powered by wind turbines. As Lovelock puts it, “so called sustainable developement —-is meaningless drivel. We rushed into it without any thought. The schemes are largely inefficient and unpleasant…”
4. The claim that the science is settled on global warming : “one thing about being a scientist is that you can never be certain about anything. You never know the truth. ….you interate toward the truth. You don’t know it.”
This interview with James Lovelock a former global warming alarmist warmed my heart…I have been a doubter of the hysterical alarmist view on climate change/ global warming from the beginning and the finding out of how global warming alarmists at a university in England (East Anglia University) falsified their findings to support their theories ended my trust in any information from the Alarmists.
Yes—- the earth is probably in a warming cycle but doing the sort of things the Hystericans want to do won’t stop the cycle nor will it affect global warming much at all. These cycles of warming and cooling occur naturally in long natural cycles as records from the past show. Activity or lack of it—- on the sun’s surface has much more to do with the climate cycles than any other factor.
The warmest cycle yet in history came in the Medieval ages when there were no carbon emissions on earth.
