Inventor of Gaia Hypothesis Now Says Global Warming is a “Religion”

Posted by Tina

His name is James Lovelock and his Gaia hypothesis became launch pad for the modern environmental movement:

What has changed dramatically, however, is his position on climate change. He now says: “Anyone who tries to predict more than five to 10 years is a bit of an idiot, because so many things can change unexpectedly.” But isn’t that exactly what he did last time we met? “I know,” he grins teasingly. “But I’ve grown up a bit since then.”

Lovelock now believes that “CO2 is going up, but nowhere near as fast as they thought it would. The computer models just weren’t reliable. In fact,” he goes on breezily, “I’m not sure the whole thing isn’t crazy, this climate change. You’ve only got to look at Singapore. It’s two-and-a-half times higher than the worst-case scenario for climate change, and it’s one of the most desirable cities in the world to live in.”

But there is a third explanation for why he has shifted his position again, and nowadays feels “laid back about climate change”. All things being equal – “and it’s only got to take one sizable volcano to erupt and all the models, everything else, is right off the board”

Lovelock maintains that, unlike most environmentalists, he is a rigorous empiricist, but it is manifestly clear that he enjoys maddening the green movement. “Well, it’s a religion, really, you see. It’s totally unscientific.”

    If we could somehow trap all of the hot air expounded about the global warming hoax, we could fuel several cities!

  2. Dewster says:

    lol that dude has always been looney…….

    Fracking? Who will pay for all the cancer patients?

  3. Pie Guevara says:

    Yes, it is a religion. A religion the IPCC, Nasa climate, Hadly CRU, and the many various and sundry scientific frauds such as Michael Mann depend on to survive.

    For just exactly how much longer are you all going to be pathetic about this? … slobbering after crackpots for vindication of your unwillingness to take responsibility for the mess? … bent over (figuratively speaking) for big energy, which is using your gullibility to gum up the works?

    • Pie Guevara says:

      Sometimes even a “crackpot” empiricist whose work underpins modern environmentalism can get it right, Libby. Unlike you, a crackpot who never gets it right and is always full of hate and anger.

      Chill, resume your medication, calm down and take a break from the mindless, blinding, foaming-at-the-mouth hate before you burst an artery.

    I’ll consider the global warming issue when all grants to “scientist” and researchers have their grant fundings cut off and are not dependent on the money to pay their salaries and equip their labs.

    For the usual nitwits (Libby) who do not understand James Lovelock and his Gaia hypothesis (which is NOT the silly crap religio-environmentalists, New Age pinheads, and Wiccans misinterpret it as) here is an interesting article from Watts Up With That —

    How Gaia and Coral Reefs Regulate Ocean pH

    Yeah, I know Libby won’t read it. It is far above her pay grade and intellectual capacity. But other may find it a fascinating as I did.
