Interesting find - the 'father' of global warming recants!
Jun 26, 2013

It's odd how this was over a year ago.. but the ACC myth makers still bleat on their rubbish!

James Lovelock , the guy generally acknowledged as the "grandfather of global warming", recanted his activism and stance on global warming.


"James Lovelock admitted on MSNBC in April that he had overstated the case for man-made global warming and conceded that "we don't know what the climate is doing."

The 92-year-old Lovelock said: "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 explained that "the world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time" for the warming to occur.
Yet the temperature "has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising" as carbon dioxide was rising."


"Two months ago, James Lovelock, the godfather of global warming, gave a startling interview to msnbc.com in which he acknowledged he had been unduly “alarmist” about climate change.

The implications were extraordinary.

Lovelock is a world-renowned scientist and environmentalist. Unlike many “environmentalists,” who have degrees in political science, Lovelock, until his recent retirement at age 92, was a much-honoured working scientist and academic.

His inventions have been used by NASA, among many other scientific organizations.

Lovelock’s invention of the electron capture detector in 1957 first enabled scientists to measure CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) and other pollutants in the atmosphere, leading, in many ways, to the birth of the modern environmental movement.

Having observed that global temperatures since the turn of the millennium have not gone up in the way computer-based climate models predicted, Lovelock acknowledged, “the problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago.”

And the most telling points??


"He responds to attacks on his revised views by noting that, unlike many climate scientists who fear a loss of government funding if they admit error, as a freelance scientist, he’s never been afraid to revise his theories in the face of new evidence. Indeed, that’s how science advances."

"That's how science advances".. but ACC is a stagnant 'science' - it admits to no possible conclusions but it's own.. scam science.

Taken from multiple links.. if you're interested just google search "James Lovelock recants"
(I doubt that many of the devout ACC brethren will do it)
