James Lovelock, the Gaia scientist, once proclaimed that humanity would soon end due to global warming from CO2. Yet over the last 15 years the lack of global warming has been significant and robust. And what did Lovelock do?
"James Lovelock, the maverick scientist who became a guru to the environmental movement with his “Gaia” theory of the Earth as a single organism, has admitted to being “alarmist” about climate change and says other environmental commentators, such as Al Gore, were too...“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,” Lovelock said."
As an objective scientist, he reviewed the actual empirical evidence and realized he had been wrong - catastrophic global warming was not happening and likely not to take place. The man has courage.
A real extreme climate change, so-to-speak, from a real scientist - accolades to James Lovelock, it's well deserved.
