Richard Lindzen, an atmospheric scientist, was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, MIT from 1983 until his retirement in 2013. Currently he is a Distinguished Senior Fellow in Cato Institute's Center for the Study of Science.
This talk is a brilliant takedown of the alarmists' bogus arguments. It is extracted from his 2018 Global Warming Policy Foundation lecture (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2q9BT2LIUA).
He provides both the political and scientific reasons why the climate scare is unwarranted and that additional CO2 is to be welcomed as plant food. (The fuller talk, for those interested, also outlines the way the climate actually works.)
Pseudo science and pretend pride of the fool intellectuals that they also "know" and "respect" science (he cites CP Snow's brilliant insights into this tendency, which I've edited out of the talk to keep it short) keeps this nonsensical and harmful alarm going.
But as he rightly notes, the middle classes are not fooled. The middle class have universally (except possibly in India, yet) rejected climate alarm. That is the only saving grace in this evolving socialist nightmare. Our only hope is the common sense of the middle class.
