Ooops, he was wrong
, April 24, 2012
This review is from: The Revenge of Gaia: Earth's Climate Crisis & The Fate of Humanity (Paperback)
At least he can admit being wrong:
"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."
"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."
"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."
- James Lovelock, 2012
"All right, I made a mistake." He claimed a university or government scientist might fear an admission of a mistake would lead to the loss of funding.
But not to worry - "He said he still thought that climate change was happening, but that its effects would be felt farther in the future than he previously thought."
His alarmism has caused billions to be wasted on useless spending, while millions go hungry. Of course, this fits in with alarmist goals of reducing human population.
