Richard Lindzen: Key Points Climate Alarmists Get Wrong
American Thought Leaders
“The minute you hear the science is settled, you know something is wrong. Science is never settled,” says Richard Lindzen, professor emeritus of atmospheric science at MIT. “Climate is one of the earliest examples of cancel culture … I don't think the public is quite aware of the pressures that were brought to bear to get rid of opposition to this,” Mr. Lindzen says. In this episode, he breaks down key mistaken assumptions he sees fueling the climate extremism we see today, and explains why many climate policies, from the push to reduce cattle to bans on synthetic fertilizers, have been counterproductive and harmful. “And you see these policies have had no impact on CO2. So they have done nothing to prevent this alleged existential threat, except make people poorer, make society less stable, less resilient. And you can only account for that with either ignorance or sadism,” Mr. Lindzen says.
