() “The UN IPCC wisely avoided making the claim that 51% of a small change in temperature constitutes a problem.They left this to the politicians and anyone who took the bait,” he said.— is that we are talking about something tiny (temperature changes) and that is the crucial point.” Lindzen also challenged the oft-repeated UN IPCC claim that most of warming over past 50 years was due to mankind. The uncertainty here is tenths of a degree,” he noted. “And the proof that the uncertainty is tenths of a degree are the adjustments that are being made.“When someone points to this and says this is the warmest temperature on record. If you can adjust temperatures to 2/10ths of a degree, it means it wasn’t certain to 2/10ths of a degree,” he said.
In the 4th century BC, the Greek philosopher Plato somewhat flippantly defined "man" as an erect and featherless biped.Al Gore’s dire predictions of the melting of polar ice on a massive scale have proved to be completely false.In fact, in 2014 – a year that was touted as being “the hottest ever” in the Earth’s history – there were record amounts of ice reported in Antarctica, an increase in Arctic ice, and record snowfalls across the globe.Lindzen singled out Secretary of State John Kerry for his ‘ignorance’ on science. “Kerry expresses his ignorance of what science is,” he added.
Lindzen also criticized EPA Chief Gina Mc Carthy’s education: “I don’t want to be snobbish, but U Mass Boston is not a very good school,” he said to laughter.
Debunking the “97 percent” lie On top of those “inconvenient truths,” the White House’s assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely debunked.
