Climate Alarmism is Dying

James Lovelock has been one of the foremost advocates of Climate Alarmism for many years.  Those on the skeptical side of the isle would say he is a High Priest in the Green Religion.  Not that one person makes a huge difference, but his comments show a general trend in the true believers of Climate Alarmism.  First, from 2007:

“Before this century is over, billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic.”

Now, from May 2010:

“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.” …”The skeptics have kept us sane…They have kept us from regarding climate science as a religion.  It had gone too far that way.”

These comments were included in a report with 1,000 scientists against Climate Alarmism.  See: http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/papers/reprint/1000_scientists_dissent.pdf

To make one correction to his comments, he should have said that everybody in the Climate Establishment might be wrong.  There have always been those who looked at the data and the science and the math and stood up against the Alarmists.  Richard Lindzen, Steve McIntyre, Ross McKitrick, and Christopher Monckton all quickly come to mind.  Now there is a huge chorus joining them. 

Finally, this is great news for those who love freedom.  See http://www.stateofmankind.com/tragedy-and-hope-review/vi-climate-change/ for a rundown on the science, and http://www.stateofmankind.com/tragedy-and-hope-review/84-2/ to understand the agenda that Climate Alarmism fuels.  To be sure, we still need to hold governments accountable and watch these people closely.  They will move ahead with or without the science, but at least they are now exposed.
