On Global Hot Air: Why So Gloomy?
“Recently many people have said that the earth is facing a crisis requiring urgent action. This statement has nothing to do with science.

“Lindzen is the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research has always been funded exclusively by the U.S. government. He receives no funding from any energy companies.”
…because people love to accuse scientists who deny the global warming hysteria of being Evil Oil Company shills.
