I hope some of your were able to tune in for Professor Richard Lindzen’s zoom lecture and Q&A on Wednesday. The sponsors, Clintel Foundation in Dublin, said they will re-record the lecture. If you want the link to the lecture, let me know and I will send you a link when I receive it.
As usual with his lectures, there are many take away quotes. This is one that will be immediately useful:
“Stop treating it [i.e. AGW…human-caused global warming/climate change] as a worthy opponent. Do not ascribe reasonableness to the other side. It is not reasonable, not true, not even plausible.”
~ Richard Lindzen, Professor Emeritus, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (31 March 2021. Zoom call Clintel Foundation)
