2006 Opinions

Writing in the British newspaper The Independent in January 2006, Lovelock argued that, as a result of global warming, “billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable” by the end of the 21st century.

2012 Opinions

“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened;” he continues
“The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now,” he said
The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time … it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising – carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that”, he added.
Climate Change=Religion

He criticizes environmentalists for treating global warming like a religion.[33]

“It just so happens that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion,” Lovelock observed
“I don’t think people have noticed that, but it’s got all the sort of terms that religions use … The greens use guilt. That just shows how religious greens are. You can’t win people round by saying they are guilty for putting (carbon dioxide) in the air.”[33]
Other Opinions
In a follow up interview Lovelock stated his support for natural gas; he now favors fracking (which environmentalists oppose), as a low-polluting alternative to coal.[33][13] He opposes the concept of ‘sustainable development’, where modern economies might be powered by wind turbines, calling it meaningless drivel. [33] He keeps a poster of a wind turbine to remind himself how much he detests them.[13]
Words of Wisdom
“One thing that being a scientist has taught me is that you can never be certain about anything. You never know the truth. You can only approach it and hope to get a bit nearer to it each time. You iterate towards the truth. You don’t know it.”

NASA simply can`t turn off the BS. Here is the actual satellite photo from July 12 – no indication of melt in the interior

Here is the same photo from July 7 – looks identical

Below is the Summit webcam on July 9, at -19C  This was supposed to be right in the middle of the NASA big melt.

Where is the big melt, NASA? temperatures got barely above freezing for a few hours, and NASA declares a meltdown

Climate Change: U.S. Heat Waves, Wildfires And Flooding Are ‘What Global Warming Looks Like’

It turns out that they were actually talking about the 1930s.

Galileo

  • Believed the Earth revolved around the Sun
  • Most people, including the Catholic Church believed the Earth was the center of the universe
  • There was pretty much a consensus that the Earth was the center of the universe. People like Galileo where minorities, in this situation.
  • Galileo had the evidence that the Earth revolved around the Sun, but it was ignored because it was a new idea, and the people at the Catholic Church didn’t like that it was going against their idea.
  • Galileo was put under house arrest in 1633, just for his beliefs

Climate Change Skeptics

  • Believe Climate Change is natural, and is not caused by man
  • A majority of people believe in Climate Change. Some even thing there is a consensus between scientists.
  • Have evidence against Climate Change, but new ideas are simply ignored

Here’s The Evidence
