The Heroic Richard Lindzen on Global Warming (note: about Lindzen, not written by him)

URL: http://blog.mises.org/archives/007256.asp#128865
Date: 5 October 2007

Arguments by Lindzen vs What the Science Says
"Al Gore got it wrong"

Al Gore's book is quite accurate, and far more accurate than contrarian books.

"Climate's changed before" Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing.
"Human CO2 is a tiny % of CO2 emissions" The natural cycle adds and removes CO2 to keep a balance; humans add extra CO2 without removing any.
"Increasing CO2 has little to no effect" The strong CO2 effect has been observed by many different measurements.
"It's a 1500 year cycle"

Ancient natural cycles are irrelevant for attributing recent global warming to humans.
