    great lecture. it points to all the holes in CAGW theory that have NOT been filled in during the last 20 years even though billions have been spent to figure it out.

    Lindzen also testified before Congress as to the harmlessness of tobacco. He also proposed the 'Iris' hypothesis which has been completely falsified.

    Whatever his hypothesis are, the evidence is already in that the consequences of the warming that we are seeing are far more serious than even the 'Alarmists' predicted. From the Arctic Ice, East Arctic Shelf Clathrates, to the increase in severity and number of extreme weather events, we are seeing consequences we were not expecting for another 40 to 80 years.

    do you have atranscipt of Lindzen saying tobacco was harmless? no, I thought not. I can easily believe that he stated that the actual evidence against tobacco is much weaker than people think it is, especially second hand smoke. or that many of the hyperbolic conclusions against tobacco are wildly overstated and unsupported by what evidence there is. I dont think presenting the actual science instead of the propaganda can be twisted into saying that he said tobacco was harmless.

    in much the same fashion Lindzen has pointed out the weak case CAGW alarmists have presented (which is getting weaker daily) and why the actual science of 1C/doubling of CO2 should be separated from the fiction of 3X feedbacks. etc

    Oh noes, the whole world except American Republicans has been pwned! By the irrefutable Richard Lindzen!

    What do we do? Rhett, to whom shall we turn?

    your logic is backasswards. it is not that Lindzen is irrefutable, but that CAGW is refutable.

    According to the global waming sycophants, our scientists are frauds and their scientists are true professionals. Even though their scientists were caught altering data, supressing opposing views, and planningthe supression of evidence contrary to the AGW religion.

    the ice sheets flow (slowly) into the sea. sooner or later the tongue of ice breaks off, and that is when we get these tales of doom. even though the ice has always broken off. West Antarctica peninsula has warmed up somewhat while the main continent has not. this has probably been caused by the change in ocean currents.

    U.N. Warns ‘Door’ is ‘About to Close’ on Halting 2-degree Celsius Rise in Global Temperature
    May 25, 2012 – A two-week United Nations gathering in Bonn, Germany focusing on climate change ended on Friday with a warning that global warming will continue to be a threat without a legally binding international treaty to cut greenhouse gas emissions -- and unless rich nations donate billions of dollars to the cause.
