Lindzen libeled by Nuccitelli

Guest essay by Christopher Monckton of Brenchley Dana Nuccitelli of Unskeptical Science has written a characteristically spiteful piece in the Guardian about Professor Lindzen.

Lindzen: Understanding The IPCC AR5 Climate Assessment

Guest essay by Dr. Richard Lindzen Each IPCC report seems to be required to conclude that the case for an international agreement to curb carbon dioxide has grown stronger.

Lindzen on climate science advocacy and modeling – “at this point, the models seem to be failing”

This is a letter professor Richard Lindzen of MIT sent to the Boston Globe and was published today. It is well worth the read. KERRY EMANUEL’S Feb. 15 op-ed “Climate changes are proven fact’’ is more advocacy than assessment. Vague terms such as “consistent with,’’ “probably,’’ and “potentially’’ hardly change this. Certainly climate change is…
