Tomorrow Newsweek will publish an op-ed by well-known climate-change contrarian Richard Lindzen, in which he argues that global warming is nothing to worry about and may even be a good thing.
"Why So Gloomy?" he wonders, adding "a warmer climate could be more beneficial than the one we have now." Reminds me of Voltaire’s famous idiot Pangloss, who insisted that "It is proved that things cannot be other than they are, for since everything is made for a purpose, it follows that everything is made for the best purpose."
But enough philosophizing. For more–and a truly first rate discussion exposing this guy in detail–please see my post on Grist.
And thanks David, for the tip!
