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.

This is a letter professor Richard Lindzen of MIT sent to the Boston Globe and was published today. It is well worth the read.
