“The judge identified nine aspects of An Inconvenient Truth, nine core errors, where Al Gore either misstated the IPCC or prejudicially exaggerated what they found.” John Day is the lawyer for a British parent who sued the British Department
of Education when they tried to distribute An Inconvenient Truth to schools.
"Denier is closer then skeptic. Realist also works." - Prof. Richard Lindzen

lindzenProfessor Richard Lindzen is an American atmospheric physicist, is currently an Afred P. Sloan Professor at MIT, and was the lead author of Chapter 7, 'Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,' of the IPCC Third Assessment Report on climate change. He is a well-known skeptic in the climate community, saying that he refuses to succumb to political pressure on climate scientists to conform to climate alarmism. The latter might explain why Michael Williams, the host of BBC's "One Planet", broadcast on public radio in US this week, aggressively questioned Prof Lindzen about his "belief" in man-made Global Warming. Williams even hand picked loaded questions from the audience, asking about Lindzen's funding and if he worried about letting down for future generations.

Prof. Lindzen responded during the interview with calm, collected answers. His funding comes from the US government. The reason he won't change his mind is that years of scientific research have lead him to the conclusion that the human impact on climate change is negligible.

And no, "he doesn't worry that he's letting down future generations," because in his own words:
"I would if any of the suggested policies would have an impact. If you look at suggested policies, if not all of them, and they are great pain for no gain even if you believe in catastrophic global warming," said Prof. Lindzen.
Prof. Lindzen kept it cool under pressure of hot air. That is another thing to learn from him.

Prof. Lindzen also contributed to Not Evil Just Wrong, and we hope you'll listen to the entire interview here.
