Global Warming Skepticism

Dr. Michael Edelstein emails:

Dr. Richard Lindzen, M.I.T. climate scientist, says any recent changes in global temperature are so small they suggest “a low and inconsequential climate sensitivity – meaning no problem at all.” http://bit.ly/1MrroyG 
Dr. Will Happer, Princeton University physicist, says policies to slow CO2 emissions are based on “computer models that do not work” and are therefore “nonsense.” http://bit.ly/1MrroyG 
Government scientists may be “juicing” evidence for catastrophic climate change, including (most recently) manipulating data to show a hotter-than-normal October 2015. http://bit.ly/1X32GwQ The very timing of their report, rushed to publication without appropriate review on the eve of COP21, raises concerns. http://bit.ly/1I1ElRa 


  1. Have Happer and Lindzen been executed yet?

  2. There is a huge amount of crony money on the line, so global warming has to be true, even if it isn't.

  3. In my opinion it is helpful in many ways to understand all sides of an issue. This YouTube of a 2011 debate on climate change between two gentlemen with PhD’s and obvious respect for each other is solid.

    The amount of climate sensitivity and feedback, specifically to CO2, seems to be the main issue of the debate.
