Some weekend reading from Professor Richard Lindzen, a long-time critic of IPCC climate assertions.


By Paul Homewood


London, 23 September – A prominent climate scientist has warned that the picture of climate change presented in the IPCC’s narrative is simplistic, ill-conceived, and undermined by observational evidence.
In a new
discussion paper, Professor Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) points out that the official picture, focusing narrowly on carbon dioxide as a warming agent, becomes implausible when applied to the details of the climate system.
According to Lindzen,
“If you are going to blame everything on carbon dioxide, you have to explain why, on all timescales, temperatures in the tropics are extremely stable while those in high latitudes are much more variable. The IPCC’s story is that small amounts of greenhouse warming near the equator are ‘amplified’ at high latitudes. But neither theory nor data support the idea of amplification.”
Instead, says Lindzen, this pattern – of stable tropical temperatures and…

    For years the ‘experts’ have been telling us that the Arctic would soon be ice-free in summer.

    Their theories are as weak as their predictions.

    Met Office: Who discovered the QBO?

    A change in wind direction in the equatorial stratosphere was first spotted by Met Office meteorologists analysing weather balloon data in the 1950s. The mechanism behind the QBO was only understood many years later thanks to American scientists James Holton and Richard Lindzen. [bold added]
