Global warming skeptic Freeman Dyson speaks out

This interview of Freeman Dyson in Yale Environment 360 is pretty interesting. He explains why he doesn't think global warming is a big deal. He has been studying the problem for longer than the rest of us have been hearing about "global warming." He echoes my reservations: distrust of the motives, methods, and methodology of the global warming "experts" and other people who inflate the "crisis," and disbelief that humans can actually engineer or manage the "fix" that global warming proponents are aiming for (in my book that is called gross and wishfully unrealistic, anthropomorphic, human-centric hubris). Also, he likes change. Now that's what a real scientist sounds like. Are we raising any more like him these days?

Hat tip to my Dreamboat.

    It never ceases to amaze how the simple mention of global warming in a news story sets off a tsunami of rhetoric. It generally comes from a very vocal minority that would go to its grave swearing that the sum total of climate science is a liberal plot to enrich Al Gore. Alternately, we are told the Martian ice caps are melting, proof that solar radiation and sunspot cycles — and not greenhouse gases — are the cause of planetary warmups.

    It never fails to amaze me how the hordes of environmental cultists MUST comment negatively on anybody who dares question their religious beliefs.

    And the comment must be made quickly... quickly... quickly...
