Update: Another Prominent Scientist Dissents! Fmr. NASA Scientist Dr. Les Woodcock ‘Laughs’ at Global Warming – ‘Global warming is nonsense’ Top Prof. Declares – Asserts ‘professional misconduct by Government advisors around the world’ ]

Green Guru James Lovelock laments modern green movement: ‘We never intended a fundamentalist Green movement that rejected all energy sources other than renewable’

Green guru and geophysicist James Lovelock, considered one of the pioneering scientists of the 20th century, has officially turned his back on man-made global warming claims and the green movement’s focus on renewable energy. Lovelock conceived the Gaia theory back in the 1970s, describing the Earth’s biosphere as “an active, adaptive control system able to maintain the earth in homeostasis.”

In an April 2, 2014 BBC TV interview, Lovelock has come out swinging at his fellow environmentalists, accusing the new UN IPCC global warming report of plagiarizing his now retracted climate claims from his 2006 book ‘The Revenge of Gaia.’

“The last IPCC report is very similar to the (now retracted) statements I made in my book about 8 years ago, called The Revenge of Gaia. It’s almost as if they’ve copied it,” Lovelock told BBC Newsnight television program on April 3.

BBC interviewer Jeremy Paxman noted to Lovelock during the April 2 program:  “Sure. But you then, after publishing these apocalyptic predictions, you then retracted them.”

The newly skeptical Lovelock responded: “Well, that’s my privilege. You see, I’m an independent scientist. I’m not funded by some government department or commercial body or anything like that. If I make a mistake, then I can go public with it. And you have to, because it is only by making mistakes that you can move ahead.”

Lovelock dismissed the entire basis for global warming concerns in his BBC television interview. “Take this climate matter everybody is thinking about. They all talk, they pass laws, they do things, as if they knew what was happening. I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess. And a whole group of them meet together and encourage each other’s guesses,” Lovelock explained.

A UN Lead Author, Dr. Richard Tol, joined Lovelock this week in slamming the UN and had his name removed from the IPCC report. See: UN IPCC LEAD AUTHOR Dr. Richard Tol rips IPCC: ‘The idea that climate change poses an existential threat to humankind is laughable’

Other reactions to the UN report echoed Tol. See: Pre-Determined ‘Science’: Round Up of New UN IPCC Report: Human Extinction? IPCC at ‘beck and call’ of Govts – UN Officials Predicted Alarming Report Years Ago

Another prominent scientist also dissented this week: Freeman Dyson — the world-renowned mathematical physicist: ‘I have strong views about climate because I think the majority is badly wrong’

Just last week, Lovelock compared believe in man-made climate alarm to “‘religion.” See: Gaia inventor James Lovelock: ‘Environmentalism has become a religion, and religions don’t worry too much about facts’ – March 31, 2014

Back in 2006, Lovelock was a committed man-made global warmnig activist, promoting scary climate scenarios. See: Climate Shocker: Lovelock Predicted Global Warming Doom: ‘Billions of us will die; few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in Arctic where the climate remains tolerable & Gaia scientist Lovelock: ‘I was WRONG and alarmist on climate: a scientist: ‘I swore Earth should be frying by now’ – ‘In 2006 Dr. Lovelock predicted the Earth ‘would catch a morbid fever’ that would destroy six billion people – ‘the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable’

Lovelock has since reversed himself and now serves a vocal critic of the man-made global warming movement. – Flashback April 2012: ‘Gaia’ scientist James Lovelock reverses himself: I was ‘alarmist’ about climate change & so was Gore! ‘The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago’

Lovelock: ‘We haven’t got the physics worked out yet…I think the public are right. That’s why I’m soft on the sceptics. Science has got overblown’ & 2010: Green Guru Lovelock Says Warmists ‘Scared Stiff’: ‘The great climate science centers around the world are more than well aware how weak their science is’

Lovelock has been very critical of the UN IPCC. In 2012, he slammed the UN climate panel as “a mess” and accused it of being “too politicised and too internalized.” See: 2012: Green Guru Lovelock Slams UN IPCC & Greens: ‘Whenever UN puts its finger in it seems to become a mess’ — ‘The green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion’ — James Lovelock: ”IPCC is too politicised & too internalized’ — On Green religion: ‘I don’t think people have noticed that, but it’s got all the sort of terms that religions use. The greens use guilt. You can’t win people round by saying they are guilty for putting CO2 in the air’

Lovelock also spared no criticism of the Climategate scnadal. See: Lovelock on Climategate: Scandal left him feeling ‘utterly disgusted’ — ‘Fudging the data in any way whatsoever is quite literally a sin against the holy ghost of science. I’m not religious, but I put it that way because I feel so strongly. It’s the one thing you do not ever do. You’ve got to have standards.’

Lovelock has questioned the entire scientific basis for man-made climate change alarm. Climate Depot began reporting on Lovelock’s conversion away from climate fears in 2010 as he began reconsidering the alleged ‘settled science.” See below for Climate Depot’s reporting on the evolution of James Lovelock’s climate views.

Lovelock on climate change science: 

Inquisitr News, 2 April 2014: Influential scientist, inventor, and environmentalist James Lovelock is having some second thoughts about the whole climate change thing. In the context of a doom-and-gloom United Nations climate science report, Lovelock, 94, described the environmental movement as becoming “a religion, and religions don’t worry too much about facts.”

Green Guru James Lovelock says ‘we don’t know what the climate is doing’ and ‘The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet’ – But warmist Michael Mann says ‘frankly I see [Lovelock] largely as just coming back into the fold of mainstream thinking’

Lovelock On science:’Science is going down the drain terribly fast. It keeps dividing itself up into expertises and these expertises probably don’t know much about the others’ – ‘I think in order to be a fully rounded person you have to learn to be a pro at one thing, but then you can become a generalist’ — ‘I think the most outrageous example of climate scientists getting it wrong and not admitting it was the 2007 IPPC report. They happily accepted the Nobel prize, but their sea-level rise estimates, according to that very important Science paper by Rahmstorf, were 100% wrong’

Lovelock on climate models: ‘But they [climate scientists] still don’t put any of the living parts of the planet into the climate models’

Lovelock on Sea Level: ‘He & his wife Sandy downsized & moved to an old lifeguard’s cottage by beach. ‘I’m not worried about sea-level rises,’ he laughs. ‘At worst, I think it will be 2ft a century’

SHOCK: UK Green Guru James Lovelock Reconsiders Warming Views?!: Lovelock: Man-made Carbon Emissions ‘Have Saved Us from A New Ice Age’ – Lovelock: ‘I hate all this business about feeling guilty about what we’re doing. We’re not guilty’ — ‘We haven’t learned the lessons of the ozone-hole debate. It’s important to know just how much you have got to be careful’ — ‘According to Dr Lovelock’s Gaia theory, the earth is capable of curing itself. ‘A planet that is effectively alive can regulate itself and its composition and climate,” he said’

James Lovelock on Ozone hole science: ‘We should have been warned by the CFC/ozone affair because the corruption of science in that was so bad…’ ‘Something like 80% of the measurements being made during that time were either faked, or incompetently done’

Global warming guru admits he was wrong about climate change: ‘He admits that speaking in more reasonable terms ‘would have spoilt the book.’

2010 Shock: Green Guru Lovelock warms to skeptics! ‘The skeptics have kept us sane…They have kept us from regarding climate science as a religion. It had gone too far that way’

Enviro Guru James Lovelock Admits Obvious: ‘Peer-review process can be exceedingly prejudiced and exert censorship even’

Green Guru James Lovelock Admits the Obvious: ‘Everybody might be wrong. Climate change may not happen as fast as we thought, and we may have 1,000 years to sort it out’

MSNBC April 23, 2012: ‘Gaia’ scientist James Lovelock reverses himself: I was ‘alarmist’ about climate change & so was Gore! ‘The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago’ – More MSNBC article excerptsLovelock pointed to Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and Tim Flannery’s “The Weather Makers” as other examples of “alarmist” forecasts of the future…”The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened,” Lovelock said. “The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now,” he said. “The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time… it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising — carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that,” he added…Asked if he was now a climate skeptic, Lovelock told msnbc.com: “It depends what you mean by a skeptic. I’m not a denier.” He said human-caused carbon dioxide emissions were driving an increase in the global temperature, but added that the effect of the oceans was not well enough understood and could have a key role. “It (the sea) could make all the difference between a hot age and an ice age,” he said. ‘I made a mistake’ As “an independent and a loner,” he said he did not mind saying “All right, I made a mistake.” He claimed a university or government scientist might fear an admission of a mistake would lead to the loss of funding.”

Even more surprising is the fact that Lovelock is now actively campaining against renewable energy sources such as wind power and is very pro-nuclear  calling them “silly.”

Lovelock on Energy: 

Green Guru James Lovelock laments modern green movement: ‘We never intended a fundamentalist Green movement that rejected all energy sources other than renewable’ – Feb. 2013 — Lovelock: ‘I am an environmentalist & founder member of the Greens but I bow my head in shame at the thought that our original good intentions should have been so misunderstood & misapplied. We never intended…nor did we expect the Greens to cast aside our priceless ecological heritage because of their failure to understand that the needs of the Earth are not separable from human needs’

Green ‘drivel’: The godfather of global warming James Lovelock lowers the boom on climate change hysteria — Lovelock: ‘So-called ‘sustainable development’ … is meaningless drivel … We rushed into renewable energy without any thought. The schemes are largely hopelessly inefficient and unpleasant. I personally can’t stand windmills at any price.’

James Lovelock on shale gas and the problem with ‘greens’: ‘Lovelock on “fracking”: Gas is almost a give-away in the US at the moment. They’ve gone for fracking in a big way’ — ‘This is what makes me very cross with the greens for trying to knock it: the amount of CO2 produced by burning gas in a good turbine gives you 60% efficiency. In a coal-fired power station, it is 30% per unit of fuel. So you get a two-to-one gain there straight away’

Green Guru Lovelock: ‘Europe’s massive use of wind as a supplement to baseload electricity will probably be remembered as one of great follies of 21st century’

Lovelock on Nuclear Energy: ‘It’s almost probably pointless to support nuclear now. The opposition to it now is just too powerful. It’s not rational opposition. It’s religious opposition’

Germany’s decision ‘to shut down all its nuclear power plants by 2022 – particularly infuriates Lovelock: Germany has ‘this fatal flaw that they always fall for an ideologue…’‘…and Europe has suffered intensely from the last two episodes of that. It looks to me as if the green ideas they have picked up now could be just as damaging’

Lovelock has ‘hatred of wind power (he has a picture of a wind turbine on the wall of his study to remind him how ‘ugly and useless they are’) — ‘He argues that, while not perfect, it produces far less CO2 than burning coal: ‘Gas is almost a give-away in the US at the moment. They’ve gone for fracking in a big way. Let’s be pragmatic and sensible and get Britain to switch everything to methane. We should be going mad on it’

UK Guardian: ‘Scientist James Lovelock is the man behind Gaia theory, and once predicted doom for our climate’ — Lovelock ‘discusses nuclear (good), wind power (bad) and why fracking is the future Lovelock is relaxed about how this reversal might be perceived. He says being allowed to change your mind and follow the evidence is one of the liberating marvels of being an independent scientist’

James Lovelock: ‘We rushed into renewable energy without any thought. The schemes are largely hopelessly inefficient and unpleasant’ — ‘I personally can’t stand windmills at any price. Hydro, biomass, solar, etc, have all got great promise, but they’re not available tomorrow, or even in 10 years’

The global warming movement continues to lose scientists, many formerly with the UN IPCC.

More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims – Challenge UN IPCC & Gore

Top Swedish Climate Scientist Says Warming Not Noticeable: ‘The warming we have had last a 100 years is so small that if we didn’t have climatologists to measure it we wouldn’t have noticed it at all’ – Award-Winning Dr. Lennart Bengtsson, formerly of UN IPCC: ‘We Are Creating Great Anxiety Without It Being Justified’

‘High Priestess of Global Warming’ No More! Former Warmist Climate Scientist Judith Curry Admits To Being ‘Duped Into Supporting IPCC’ – ‘If the IPCC is dogma, then count me in as a heretic’

German Meteorologist reverses belief in man-made global warming: Now calls idea that CO2 Can Regulate Climate ‘Sheer Absurdity’ — ‘Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us’

UN Scientists Who Have Turned on the UN IPCC & Man-Made Climate Fears — A Climate Depot Flashback Report - Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” – UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

‘Some of the most formidable opponents of climate hysteria include politically liberal physics Nobel laureate, Ivar Giaever; Freeman Dyson; father of the Gaia Hypothesis, James Lovelock — ‘Left-center chemist, Fritz Vahrenholt, one of the fathers of the German environmental movement’

Flashback: Left-wing Env. Scientist Bails Out Of Global Warming Movement: Declares it a ‘corrupt social phenomenon…strictly an imaginary problem of the 1st World middleclass’

Watch Now: Climate Depot’s Morano on Canadian TV with Charles Adler: ‘Warmist James Lovelock recants — Warmist movement cooling — Morano: ‘This is a man, a premier guru of the Left. He joins a long list of people who used to be believers and no longer are…The left is getting the message that global warming is doing them [political] harm’

UK Daily Mail on Lovelock’s climate recant: ‘The admission comes as a devastating blow to proponents of climate change who regard Lovelock as a powerful figurehead’

The global warming campaigner are not happy with Lovelock. See: Warmists’ throwing Lovelock under the bus! Alarmists Now Trying To Disown Their High Priest James Lovelock — Warmist caught trying to have it both ways on Lovelock: ‘The usual attempt to rewrite history. Three years ago the same author was worshiping at the alter of Gaia’

James Lovelock on BBC Newsnight: ‘I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening’

[...] James Lovelock: Take this climate matter everybody is thinking about. They all talk, they pass laws, they do things, as if they knew what was happening. I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess. And a whole group of them meet together and encourage each other’s guesses.

Jeremy Paxman: That latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change did suggest that there was something inevitable about climate change, that it had already begun and that we had to adjust to it. All of these things are true, are they not, as far as we know?

James Lovelock: Absolutely, that is true, the last [IPCC] report is very similar to the statements I made in my book about 8 years ago, called The Revenge of Gaia. It’s almost as if they’ve copied it.

Jeremy Paxman: Sure. But you then, after publishing these apocalyptic predictions, you then retracted them.

If I make a mistake, then I can go public with it. And you have to, because it is only by making mistakes that you can move ahead.

Jeremy Paxman: It follows from that, does it not, that this panel on climate change which has, as you point out, vested interests involved, may be just as likely or even more likely to make mistakes?

James Lovelock: That would be a lot of hubris on my part to say that, but it is possible.

    I hope Dr. Lovelock is prepared to be ostracized and berated then silenced by the leftists who use this movement as their right to power.

            he hasn’t “fallen for it”, no, he’s deliberately and calculatedly taken it up as one more tool to bring us down and subject us to the one world government control system promoted by his darling, the United Nations. Yes, I did say deliberate and wilful….. and I’ll add with full knowledge.

        • LandoftheLost

          What’s really pathetic about all these global warming scammers is that if they hadn’t so damaged the economies of so many countries with their controlfreak manipulative scams, there would have been much more capital available for research into alternative fuels.
          By lying, they put their own cause behind by at least a decade.

        We must stop blaming AMERICA or the U.S. in all this evil…because it’s not. The world judeomasonic cabal has corrupted everything and are doing this. They who are doing it are truly, agents of the banker elite’s conspiracy Kennedy called just that. “A MONONLITHIC INTERNATIONAL RUTHLESS CONSPIRACY” Then they murdered him and their agents moved in even deeper if that was possible. The media is their most dangerous weapon. THEY ARE TOTALLY INSANE AND YOU NEED TO STOP SAYING IT’S AMERICA DOING IT. IT’S THE USURPERS GUIDING, FORCING YOU. THE BAILOUT WAS 1000 TO 1 PHONE CALLS AGAINST IT. THEY PUT IN A CLAUSE THE LAST DAY THAT SAID, “YOU CANNOT PROSECUTE US FOR ANY REASON.” Now tell me we’re not enslaved. Cornwallis told Washington that “…..within the next 200 years the Christian teachings will be supplanted by the Jewish teachings. You’ve been programmed by media and Hollywood to call it conspiracy theory, or the chosen ones, or the persecuted ones. Oh brother. Now that we know we’ve been had. Are you going to face it. Research it. Look at Protocols of zion. If you don’t at least read it, you’re a fool. You are a fool. Many many famous people have been ruined for uttering those words. You can’t be this blind folks.

            I’ve never seen any “anti-racist” complain that any place is too brown and it has to become LESS brown to combat racism.

Consider it’s the WHITE DEMOCRATS that push so hard for abortions world-wide (paid for by you and I) so there will be FEWER “colored” folk around the planet. Isn’t working though. Instead of that, we should just populate places like other groups do if it concerns you so much. Don’t’ complain, compete. MAKE THOSE BABIES. And then RAISE THEM and SUPPORT THEM and GET THEM THROUGH COLLEGE. And, to level the “playing field” we’ll get rid of ALL social services and payments.

            Especially since Masons won’t ADMIT A JEW to membership.

        • Perso Nasplit

          blaming jewish people for controlling the entire world is only slightly less idiotic than the fact that one or two governments can tax its citizens to stop a global event, caused by a combination of natural processes and sources. The only reason its less idiotic, is jewish people are absolute idiots. They are usually fairly smart. ya know, like Einstein.

          • bcmugger

            Actually jews do control about everything.

          • TheSunDidIt

            If you missed it as a student of American history, it was a handful of rich JEWISH GUYS that pretty much bankrolled the nation through the Revolutionary War and the initial start-up of the nation. There may be Jewish folks that don’t believe in God trying to “control the world” but, there are also idiot people of EVERY race and political persuasion that want to do the same. Take Obama, PLEASE. Or Soros who sent his OWN PEOPLE to the gas chambers in Germany KNOWING they would be killed; to save his own rotten skin. How about Bush and his Illuminati brothers? And don’t forget Bill and Hillary (Hillbilly) Clinton and the murder of Vince Foster in a park in broad daylight in DC (and Whitewater). Let’s not forget Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Kim Junk Whateverhisnameis in North Korea, the warlords of Japan pre-WWII, Napoleon, the Czar of Russia, Andrew Jackson (think Native Americans and the trail of tears), and the list of butchers goes ON AND ON AND ON. Stop focusing on the lies and focus on reality.

      Quote by Ottmar Edenhoffer, high level UN-IPCC official: “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy…Basically it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization…One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore.”

      Quote by Timoth Wirth, U.S./UN functionary, former elected Democrat Senator: “We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”

      Quote by Kevin Trenberth, a lead author of 2001 and 2007 IPCC report chapters: “None of the models used by the IPCC are initialized to the observed state and none of the climate states in the models correspond even remotely to the current observed state”.

      Quote by Richard Benedik, former U.S./UN bureaucrat: “A global climate treaty must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the greenhouse effect.”

    I tend to agree i am sure we have an affect on our planet but they are playing a game in global warming for power and money and while what they say may have some truth its all part of their money making scheme in the green sector because our technology is not advanced enough to end global pollution so they use it as a front to further their goals. Now should we allow the pollution of the planet? NO because we are not the only inhabitants of this planet. And i mean come on who wants to breathe polluted air….Point is what can we do about it? Nothing Absolutely nothing unless we invent clean long term Sustainable energy. And what are they doing about that? Stealing the money and putting it in their pockets while telling us wind and solar energy are sustainable.

  • greg

    why cant we just cut down on polluting our air because having dirty air is uncomfortable? why does it have to be a “we must save the world” issue….these climate scientists just seem like kids with messiah complex’s that didnt get into medical school

    • Ray Tort

      The answer to your question may be as follows. The CAGW movement was adopted when a careless scientist noticed that both global temperatures and CO2 were increasing at the same time. He didn’t bother looking farther to see that CO2 also increased in the prior decades while global temperatures were dropping. Ideologues saw this as a crutch to denigrate the public into adopting their greatest passions – population control, redistribution of wealth, one world government, and social justice. Many admitted that they didn’t care whether CAGW was real or not, their goal was too important. Maurice Strong, IPCC cofounder, state that the goal was to destroy industrialized civilization. The IPCC charter restricted the commission to study ONLY MAN’S effect on global climate.

      • kauboy

        The IPCC puts good ol’ crony “science” on full display.

      • spyeatte

        You are right on the mark. Maurice Strong has long stated the goal was to destroy industrialized civilization, globally. Look at the Deep Green Resistance or Deep Ecology groups. Their ideal is reflected in Glen Beck’s book, Agenda 21. Scary stuff. We must never give in to these Morlocks.

    • Jim Sweet

      Because this won’t get you government grants to fight global warming. It won’t pay government officials who are paid to give out government grants to fight global warming. It won’t cause people to contribute to campaigns of politicians who want to hire government officials to give out grants to scientists to fight global warming. Do you see the theme emerging…?

      Pollution is a BIG problem, and the desecration of the Earth by coal mining, oil exploration, and now fracking just makes me want to cry. But, I’m a big believer that nuclear power, in the medium term, can prevent even more destruction and pollution, and could if need be, by the world wide installation of 700 AP1000 type reactors, suck all the excess CO2 out of the air, or seawater, and convert it to a net zero-emission form of liquid hydrocarbon fuel. It is calculated it would take 100 years to do so with that number of reactors. Then anti-nukes talk about the waste from nuclear energy, but really there is no waste, all by-products are usable, if it weren’t for the irrational fear of all types of radiation.

  • Ray Tort

    Lovelock says, “I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening.”
    Lovelock sounds just as stupid now as he did before.

    Why does he not do a few minutes research? Start with Nicola Scafetta’s “Testing an astronomically based decadal-scale empirical harmonic climate model versus the IPCC (2007) general circulation climate models http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/reprint/astronomical_harmonics.pdf

    Where Scafetta states:
    “The most prominent cycles that can be detected in the global
    surface temperature records have periods of about 9.1 year, 10-11 years, about
    20 year and about 60 years. The 9.1 year cycle appears to be linked to a
    Soli/Lunar tidal cycles, as I also show in the paper, while the other three
    cycles appear to be solar/planetary cycles ultimately related to the orbits of
    Jupiter and Saturn.”

    Graphs of these cycles are at the end of:
    http://www.appinsys.com/globalwarming/SixtyYearCycle.htm
    following a discussion and graphs of several global effects of astronomical cycles.

    Others have also reached the same conclusion years ago and successfully
    forecasted global temperatures years in advance that we have experienced for decades. But they have been ignored.

      To believe it’s because of man is to flat out not believe in Dinosaurs. Their species lived during eras of Global Warming. Each and every time Climate Change reversed itself some of the Dinosaur Species became extinct. Then came the ultimate blow, the ice age, and as a whole they ceased to exist. Nowadays alarmists say it’s fossil fuels at the root of “Global Warming”. Reality and history say without preexisting Global Warming there would be no Dinosaurs and in todays world “fossil fuels”.

      To believe Global Warming is man made or induced action is to believe Dinosaurs never existed. Don’t be a “Dinosaur Denier” ;-)

      As per NASA, here’s a newsflash, if they want funds they have to stay in tow. They are an arm of the same wing of our government that wants to control as much of our lives as possible. If they were in opposition to “manmade” climate change I’d literately be shocked.

    • Littleredtop

      Proof that the warming which earth has experienced has been caused by activity on the sun, NOT man. We all know what happens to stars over time and our sun (star) is no different.

      • larrybud

        All due respect, correlation doesn’t equate to causation. It’s the same mistakes the global warmers used that you’re now using.

      A little more clarity….hypothesize, gather data, manipulate data to fit original hypothesis, publish paper, refuse requests for original data, smear skeptics.
      Years later when real data contradicts your hypothesis, change the title from global warming to climate change and then make argument that too much or too little snow, too much or too little rain, too many or too few tornadoes/hurricanes, too many or too few droughts are all caused by man made climate change.

  • El Segundo

    I for one am grateful to the Lovelocks and Gores of the world. There is no denying that there has been some warming and there is no denying that CO2 is increasing in the atmosphere. Alarmists convinced the general population that we are destroying the planet but we could redeem ourselves by being a bit less materialistic. Now no one can dare dispute the “facts” of global warming without being a pariah even if there is a pause in warming and sea levels haven’t risen in accordance with predictions. The President of the United States and the United Nations are pursuing policies that will ultimately cause the developed world to consume less resources and reduce their standard of living. Regardless of how we get there, that is a laudable achievement. And isn’t this kind of achievement a benefit of any good science? Even if it may have been a lie or even if the data is currently being falsified, it is a beautiful lie.

    • kavukahn

      “it is a beautiful lie.” Great. You belong to the “the ends justifies the means” club. And you don’t even realize what’s wrong with that.

    • Ray Tort

      There is no denying that there has been some cooling since 2002. A look at any of the six global temperature databases tracing monthly global temperatures since 1850 shows that. Those databases also who that global temperatures varies from cooling to warming in 60 year cycles. We are on schedule with the current 30 year cooling phase. More research shows that global temperatures have been decreasing fro 8,000 years while CO2 has been increasing for 7,200 years as CO2 is released from the ocean.

      Unfortunately people like you are too lazy to do the research to verify your hysterical opinion. As a result nations are spending $1 Billion a day fighting a
      non-existent problem and have spent over $1 trillion so far. YOU are the problem!

  • Brian Sciullo

    “It depends what you mean by a skeptic. I’m
    not a denier.” He said human-caused carbon dioxide emissions were
    driving an increase in the global temperature, but added that the effect
    of the oceans was not well enough understood and could have a key role.
    “It (the sea) could make all the difference between a hot age and an
    ice age,” he said.

    I hope everyone who posts see’s this. It is clear he believes in man made global warming and carbon dioxide emissions. He sees it clearly. He is argueing the degree of change not that change is happenings.

    • Ray Tort

      Apparently, he’s lazy. He should research Scafetta’s papers and others who point to the correspondence between celestial mechanics and global temperatures of the inner planets. Global temperature is independent of the amount of atmospheric CO2. There is thousands of years of evidence.
      Compare the graphs of Mauna Loa CO2 and Hilo ocean temperatures. CO2 increases after the ocean warm in September, and decreases after the ocean cools.

      • Brian Sciullo

        You are wrong and mixing two different issues. Activity of the sun does have an effect but not the only issue! CO2 is a green house gas every scientist recognizes it! The degree is the only issue not that CO2 is a green house gas.

        • Ray Tort

          Addressing your points. CO2 is a GHG. But while it has been increasing since 1880 global temperature decreased from 1880 to 1910 and from 1940 to 1980 as can be seen in the link I gave. These temperature changes correspond to celestial mechanics, not CO2 concentration.

          The topic of degree of affect was addressed years ago.
          The extent to which CO2 affects global temperature is known as Global Warming Potential (GWP). This can be computed from a formula used by the IPCC and the DoE. The GWPs of the major GHGs are water vapor – 95%, man-made CO2 – 0.117% and man-made methane – 0.066%. Of an IPCC projected 4C increase in global temperature by the year 2100, man-made CO2 will contribute 0.0468 C and man-made Methane will contribute 0.00264. Nations have spent $1 Trillion so far to reduce CO2 by 30%. They are now spending $1 Billion a day so that man will not contribute 0.002196 C to Earth’s temperature by the year 2100. Are you in favor of this waste of money?

          • Brian Sciullo

            You are incorrect with many items! The effects of CO2 are cumulative! Once in the upper atmosphere they stay for an estimated 100 years. Of course there were not effects in the earliest years. The levels much reach a critical state before they act as a heat trapping barrier. We are entering that state now and we have seen higher temperatures. Because it is cumulative the percentage contribution of both CO2 and Methane are growing at an exponential rate with the development in India and China. You are quote best case numbers not worse case. It will be somewhere in between. Last 1 trillion was not spent for global warming. Most of it was spend to clean up the smoke stack emissions from energy industry for air quality issues not Global warming.

      No real scientist dismisses the fact that CO2 levels are increasing, and that they will lead to some warming, it’s all about what the climate sensitivity to that CO2 is.
      Everyone agrees, both skeptics, and alarmists, that a doubling of the CO2 from it’s preindustrial levels will directly trap enough radiation to increase the temperature about 1 degree. That is simple math. The difference of opinion between the two groups is what happens AFTER that 1 degree increase. Alarmists believe that that 1 degree increase will lead to a positive feedback in the climate where more, and more water vapor (another green house gas) will be pumped into the atmosphere, and the temperature will climb up to 6 degrees. Most skeptics believe that that one degree increase in temperature resulting from a doubling of CO2 will lead to a slight negative feedback, and will end up with an overall warming of 0.6 degrees.
      Why the difference? Alarmists have based their models on the belief that nearly all of the warming that occured in the 80′s and 90′s was the result of increasing CO2 levels. They believe that nothing else could have caused the warming. But the problem with that is that CO2 levels have continued to rise, and we have had no additional warming in the last 15+ years. Skeptics believe that only a small amount of the warming that took place in the 80′s and 90′s was because of CO2, and the vast majority was from natural cycles that we currently are not familiar with. That is what he was talking about when he was talking about the effect of the oceans.
      Besides the oceans, there is the effect of the Sun that is also ignored by the warmists. It’s becoming clear that there Sun plays a much larger role in the climate than it is given credit for by the alarmists. If you go back to last summer, those who believe in CO2 based climate change were once again calling for a mild winter, but the almanac was calling for a VERY brutal winter. Why? The almanc uses sunspots as one of the main factors in it’s calculations. People have been watching the Sun for sunspots for hundreds of years. Why? Because they realized that the number of sunspots was a direct harbinger of future harvests. It’s now becoming clearer that galactic cosmic rays play a major role in cloud formation, and the Earth’s albedo. When there are more sunspots, that indicates greater solar magnetic activity, and a larger Heliosphere. A larger Heliospere, means fewer galactic cosmic rays reach the Earth, and therefore there are less clouds, and a smaller albedo. Smaller albedo means more warming.
      Increased CO2 will have an effect on climate, both alarmists, and skeptics agree with that, wether it’s harmless (or even benificial with increased crop production), or dangerous, that is where the difference of opinion comes in.

      • Brian Sciullo

        You have one problem the alarmist say 6 degrees, the skeptics say less than one degree. Both are worst or best case scenarios. It is very unusual that either min or max is correct and it will fall somewhere in the middle. What would 3 degrees mean. The almanac is not based on science and your interpretation is not correct. The weather in the US alone does not predict or even represent the total temperature. The weather was only brutal in certain sections of the US other areas were milder than usual. I like that you at least want to look at the data. The problem I have with skeptics is the assertion that they just made it up to make money. CO2 will effect the temperature. Anyone that refuses to see this is putting their head in the sand. Nobody can assert that dumping CO2 into the atmosphere is a good thing. If we have the ability to change the way we do things we should!

    .

    FACT: Global warming STOPPED 17+ years ago!

    FACT: CO2 has steadily increased, leading to a measurable GREENING of the planet

    FACT: There is NO scientific evidence showing ANY global harm from the rise in CO2

    THEREFORE: CO2 is ‘harmless’. It is also beneficial to the biosphere. More is better.

    The ‘carbon’ alarmists started out with a wrong premise, therefore they have arrived at a wrong conclusion. They believe that a rise in the tiny trace gas CO2 will cause runaway global warming and climate catastrophe. But it has not. Global temperatures are now at the same level that they were at in 1997. If CO2 has any effect on temperature, it is far too small to measure.

    The only honest scientist is a skeptic. If there had been a long-term correlation between the rise in CO2 and global temperature, skeptics would accept that. But the alarmist crowd is different. Alarmists are motivated by religious belief. That is why they make easy pickins’ for the witch doctors at the UN.

    The “carbon” scare has run it’s course. That is because it was a false alarm.

    The key point here is that Lovelock is a scientist able to maintain his intellectual independence and practice of the scientific method. Most of these “environmentalists” are some sort of lobbyists or or politicians, typically with political science degrees or some similar connection. It is the most bitter irony that they are stuck to their status quo precisely as they accuse their opponents of doing — like coal proponents being unable to change their minds because coal and its resultant bad effects are what they make a living off of. So the environmentalists can’t change their minds because it’s their livelihood on the line, so they continue with their BS because it’s too late to go back.

    As of today the gas prices here in So. California are $4.50 a gallon! That’s insanity, as we sit on one of the largest oil fields on the planet, buying oil from countries that hate us??? And if you do look at the “footprint”of the U.S.A. compared to the rest of the planet, even if ever man, woman & child went 100% green, it wouldn’t matter because the rest of the countries are doing their own thing. No, I think the whole “green” thing is a religion. Just follow the money trail to find the people who are in charge of this scam. Funny how they have the big-gas sucking vehicles, private planes, and no windmills on THEIR property. But they ARE rolling in all that “green” money.

    The Navier Stokes equations describe fluid flow with changes in temperature and density. They are nonlinear, chaotic, with sensitive dependence on initial conditions. That means no finite set of data on past states is sufficient to predict a distant future state. If anyone attempts to predict distant future states using a finite set of past data, they are either incompetent or a fraud. This has been known since the 1963 paper “Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow” by Edward Lorenz. Perhaps you have heard of the Lorenz Butterfly?

    Fact is, the United States is cleaner than ever. These kooks need to admit it is more tax collection, more government control, and more social engineering /outcome based leftist crap. I grew up long ago, and believe me, it was way dirtier. Way more carbon. The fact is also that we have had the coldest winter in about a 100 years.
    But the left will continue with: Gay/homosexuality, global warming, racism, income equality, and the destruction of Christianity. It is all they are about.

    Good God Almighty! Al Gore may have to find a real job. The Environmentalist may have to do something beside protest. George Soros may have to find something else to destroy besides the United States. The real crazies may have to leave their parents basements. This will throw the Democratic Party into a tizzy, Leftist all over the world may be forced to stop worshiping at the altar of Extreme Environmentalism, Oh the Humanity!

  • joecool1

    When Al Bore ends up profiting by selling energy credits, which allow polluters to buy permission to pollute, something stinks, most likely Al. Then, when you follow the money, the whole rotten thing stinks, and they’re out to ruin anyone who disagrees.

  • Paul Roth

    The people making money are the same people spreading apocalyptic fear about the effects of increased global warming. As with anything, you just need to follow the money trail. It leads straight into the arms of the most corrupt, all looking out for you (and your money).

    In 50 years when there is plenty of polar ice for the abundant polar bears to run on there will be quite a few loony liberals that will look quite silly.

  • ELCID

    Interesting to note that the big money necessary to fund all these “Global Warming Scare Conventions,” all over the world is coming from US Wall Street Bankers. Who are selling Carbon Credits.
    Follow the money bribers and bribe takers to where they are leading the world with their own importance and cash receipts. It’s all Liars Poker, where the taxpayers are the big losers.

    you came back from the dark side. the guy who actually got this started in the 60′s at harvard with al gore as a student changed his mind also in the 70′s. instead of calling him a traitor gore ranted about his senility! as more and more come over to the light of reason. the more they will demonize you. this is not science anymore it’s a political grab for wealth to be distributed to the dirt holes of the world!

    One observation I have made about life and people, is that in the absence of “RULES”, people will fill the vacuum with their opinions. Such is Global Warming.

    I am heartened to see a scientist that is still looking for the truth… instead of bending over backwards for funding. It’s always good to see that someone can admit his mistake, instead of trying to hide it.

  • Floyd Howard Jr

    We need to put an emissions tax on any intestinal flatulence
    based on the decibel level of the escaping gasses! Monitoring stations could be
    created that would contain high amp microphones that would pinpoint any abrupt
    animal discharges of methane gas. NSA could oversee the technical operations
    and Homeland Defense could then arrest the miscreants and round up the animals.
    Studies have shown that most of the methane flatulence comes from Washington
    DC! We need to tax the government first until they cannot print anymore money
    and then every living thing that breaks wind.

    It’s strictly a shakedown. These corrupt politicians only know one thing..how to stick their greedy hands inside hard working people’s pockets. Notice they don’t pressure .India. . CHINA OR Russia to comply with their phony claims. They know that it will do them no good. But they love the defenseless taxpayer who doesn’t have a choice but to comply with their crap. If global warming happens? ? There’s nothing we can do.. Nothing!! Bankrupting the world is absurd!!

  • geo

    So what would these crooked global warming nuts do to stop the earth from heating up??

    They would have to spend billions upon billions of dollars I suppose, to put an umbrella over the real problem…The Sun!!

    I think climate Guru is a more apt term for them than climate scientist. It seems to be a religion with them of belief rather than facts. Their followers have faith in them and flock to & bow down at the alter of environment/ecology. Skeptics are treated as heretics and outcasts.

  • ratedrnightwing

    Duh?

  • vando1

    The average 80 year old geologist new more about climate change 10 years ago than Lovelock ever did, but nobody listened. The sceptics have beaten the snot out of the fear mongers from day one, but nobody wanted to listen. We’re down to Obama and Kerry campaigning on it in 2014 because they have nothing else left.

    • Justin Case

      Have you not figured out that is the plan?

  • the great kazoo

    The ones pushing this hooey is the globalist bankers. They are getting ready to pitch one of their periodic wealth harvests, and they figure this is a useful swindle. They are also fomenting war (cold or hot – either one works for them) with Russia, and also have the middle east situation suitably unstable.
    Follow the money and notice the affiliations between university researchers and rich “philanthropists”.
    They are merely paying for a ruse.
    Expect tough economic times to continue while they steal our equity.

  • BaseballBill

    The Emperor’s New Clothes : He has finally seen that he was naked as a Jay Bird with his opinions of dome and gloom pertaining to Global Warming. The King is dead, long live the King. Now if we can get all the Al Gore Zombies to open their eyes and see that Global Warming is a scam, a fraud, and Al Gore is only in it for the money. When Al Gore entered the White House his net worth was under a million dollars when he left he was worth tens of millions and now after his Global Warming scam he is now worth hundreds of millions. You do the math When John (I served in Vietnam!) Kerry said that Global Warming or Climate Change was as big a threat to America as terrorism. That proved to me without a doubt that him as well as all the others in the Obama admiration are not even qualified to be Community Organizes much less be in such important rolls of our government. The out and out stupidity coming from the Democratic Party and other socialist organizations are breath taking to say the least. IT IS AN ABSOLUTELY 14 CARROT GOLD SCAM! QED

  • Fred Doe

    Sure! Why not collapse the economies are huge nations on what is basically a whim of the AGW crowd, even though every prediction they have made has either not come true, or the complete opposite has!

  • Solymar

    This global warming/climate change or whatever you want to call it was bogus from day one. The sky is not falling, it just keeps spinning around.

  • Fred Doe

    Doesn’t the AGW crowd calling the skeptics who demand some sort of proof “deniers” smack of a religious movement? Now they want imprison skeptics! What’s next, the iron lady or being thrown into a holy frozen arctic sea to see if Al Gore saves you?

  • Reason8200

    Global warming is just a game to limit the use of fossil fuels and grow government. Cheap and abundant energy fuels freedom, liberal central planners don’t like that. So global warming was born in an attempt to destroy capitalism. No one can know what the normal temperature of the earth should be, we don’t have the data. The earth being thousands or millions of years old.

  • Justin Case

    Teach your children the truth and that is green energy is usually more harmful than current fossil fuels. The alarmists want us to use things like nuclear power which is fine till we have an oops moment. The current battery technology uses some very expensive, very hazardous materials. Do you really want to be forced to trust most American drivers with a battery that can explode and poison everyone around on your way to pick up the kids? The electricity comes from coal power plants…. Yep, how the heck does that help the situation? Perhaps we should use wind power. Sounds great till you hear how many Bald Eagles and other rare birds that are killed because of those things. By UK environmental estimates the average wind turbine is about 20% efficient and extremely expensive to repair.

    Ok, what about solar? Sounds great except what do you do when there is no sun. We could always store the excess power in lead acid batteries. Lead acid batteries have an life expectancy of anywhere between 5 to 10 years max. How many people do you think would just toss those things out with the trash.

    If you want to know what the enviornmental movement is all about then look no further than the light bulb. We use to have very very cheap light bulbs known as incondescent bulbs. Philips came out with an LED bulb that did cost $60.00 and no one wanted it so they had the government phase out the .69 cent bulbs and force us to go with florescent and LED bulbs. Florescent bulbs contain mercury and lead, lots of it. LED bulbs also contain lead as well. Both types are loaded with carcinogens. The environmental movement is about fleecing the people of money and power.

      Irony (e.g., this is what life is all about):

      God grant me the
      serenity

      to accept the things I cannot change;

      courage to change the things I can;

      and wisdom to know the difference.

      Living one day
      at a time;

      Enjoying one moment at a time;

      Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;

      Taking, as He did, this sinful world

      as it is, not as I would have it;

      Trusting that He will make all things right

      if I surrender to His Will;

      That I may be reasonably happy in this life

      and supremely happy with Him

      Forever in the next.

      Amen.

  • trebron

    I actually know the real cause of climate change . And can prove it. Unfortunately No one will publish it

  • Peter Ness

    Whole thing has been a sham for years perpetuated by ‘climate change’ journalists who have to keep themselves in a job, scientists who ‘sold out’ just to get funding and governments using it as another mechanism to both control the masses through fear and then tax you for it. They just have to understand geological stratigraphy……look at the rock record….that provides evidence of real and naturally driven climate change! Anything recent is mere ‘weather’ as we know, even compared to the Little Ice Age in the 17 and 18 centuries, it is feck all.

  • Bill Gradwohl

    I’ve always held that there are no Climate Scientists. There are climate data gatherers, climate modelers, climate priests, but no Climate Scientists.

    The university degrees these so called experts have are fraudulent. These folks are the modern day equivalent of Phrenologists.

    Ask yourself a simple question. How do these experts determine the earths temperature from just 1000 years ago. There were no thermometers back then, and there are no historical temperature readings. They use “proxies” to arrive at what they THINK the temperature was. Then they use the same techniques to guess at what the temps were millions of years ago. These are guesses. This is not science.

    Then they compound the problem. They take guesses on temperature along with guesses of sea level and even guesses of time based on carbon 14 testing that is known to be easily falsified. What they proclaim loudly as being accurate is in fact their guess.

    This is not science. These folks should have their Doctorates invalidated as their entire field of study is as yet an area devoid of any reasonable certainty and not deserving of being labeled as a legitimate science.

  • For What Its Worth

    Mr. Lovelock confirmed what most reasonable people already suspected. There are many of us (and now Mr. Lovelock and others who are speaking “Power to the Truth” on the subject) who have rejected the Global Warming hype and hyperbole (now, with the left running from that moniker “Global Warming” by calling it “Climate Change”) from the get-go. We understood the value and integrity of using the empirical method and knew that the “Climate Change” hucksters had abandoned doing real science in exchange for selling their souls for grant money or subsidies from Crony capitalists (like Al Gore) who will make billions off of the UN scam.

    Simple rule: Always follow the money because that is what drives these types of “populist” movements. All of the “Climate Change” herd with few exceptions, get their funding from these “suspect” sources including government and the crony capitalists in the “Green” energy industry who will without a doubt, greedily benefit.

    One has to be a real moron to believe that man caused CO2 can actually change climate. CO2 makes up only .04% (400 ppm) of the atmosphere. Even if man contributed 10% of that number, it would not have an impact on Earth’s climate. It’s amazing to me that people buy into this foolishness, nobody seems to have a sense of proportion. At least one ‘scientist’ finally wised up.

    Gore and the Democrats’ Green Graft Machine
    “With the Solyndra, First Solar, Sunpower, Fisker, and related Obama administration Department of Energy scandals, President Obama is following a trail blazed by Vice President Al Gore in the mid-1990s. Similar scandals failed (or failing) green technology companies intertwined with Democratic Party fundraising — will continue to arise until we understand their genesis….”

    Good to see another glo-bull warmist’s self induced blood clot has dissolved and his
    cerebral ischaemia is clearing up.
    A diet of fresh air and reality, along with staying away from fatheads, should keep him from developing another one.

    ‘Man-made global warming/climate change’ is about manufacturing an excuse for global elites to impose taxes on earth’s population. It is a farce designed to give legitimacy to an international body attempting the transition to global governance. The U.N. has no legitimacy as a governing body because it was created and exists without the participation and consent of the people. The earth’s climate has always been in transition. The difference now is that there are shysters attempting use this fact of nature as leverage to usurp the sovereignty of nations and the freedom of those inhabitants.

  • stevenlehar

    Marc Morano, please stop calling it “Climate Change” and call it what it really is, “Global Warming”. Don’t let them change the terms of the debate half way through the game when it becomes obvious that it was a BIG FAT LIE all along! Flaunt the LIE — Global WARMING! Hit them over the head with their own hockey stick!

    Energy control

    If you look closely every attempt by the left to control society eventually reverts to the control of the production and allocation of energy sources.

    Fascism:

    A system of government marked by centralization of authority
    under a dictator (Or wanna be dictator), stringent socioeconomic controls,
    suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship and massive
    regulation of private business.

    If you attain the complete control over the production and
    allocation of energy you control EVERYTHING and EVERYONE.

    If you think that statement is too harsh; try to think of
    one single thing you do that does not require some input of energy you do not
    supply yourself. Hard to identify something? Now take it one step further. Try
    to identify who controls the energy you do use daily. In almost every case the
    government is gaining more and more control over the sources and allocation of
    energy in every respect.

    The whole “climate change” indoctrination program is to
    enable ideologues to control energy.

    Remember this Obama quote:

    “On issues that are important to us, we’re going to punish
    our enemies and reward our friends”

    You can bet the Obama administration’s out of control EPA
    will be actively rewarding the allocation of energy on the bases of identifying
    enemies and friends.

    The greatest scientific hoax in history.

    Connecticut Senators Murphy and Blumenthal are just two of the scientific illiterates in Congress who promote this idiocy.

    It’s not just about climate change, it’s about resource depletion too. Tarsands and shale oil have very low EROIs and consume lots of water. When animals expend more energy foraging than they obtain from plant food sources, they die. We are also dealing with developing countries like China and India starting to consume at North American levels, with only so much oil, gas, etc. I agree, that the communication has been alarmist on climate change, but can you really blame everyone involved as if it’s part of some conspiracy? If the models really were true, wouldn’t you be communicating with a sense of urgency. The bottom line, is there are other reasons besides climate change, to move to renewable energy systems. For one, they are decentralized energy. So all the people saying, climate change is really about control, I don’t see it. Germany has largely been inspired to move to renewable’s, because of climate change, and all that has happened is over 40& of the countries energy is now produced by citizen-owned co-ops and everyday Joe’s, away from government and corporations.

    We can each solve Climategate and the New World Order for ourself by

    a.) Studying reliable observations of the Sun – Earth’s heat source – and
    b.) Putting together this 69-year old puzzle:

    It is my understanding that our planet is in an elliptical orbit around our source of heat, the Sun. An elliptical orbit may not be precise from year to year. Only God knows for certain and He is in full charge. If the orbit changes, even slightly, there will be measurable changes. Such changes do not constitute predictable change. Weather is a changeable phenomenon, predictable to an inexact degree. Therefore, be prepared and tell Al Gore to clean up his energy goggling home and go out and weed the garden during the heat of the day, without a hat.
