2GB have continued their practice of never talking to mainstream climate scientists with an interview with Richard Lindzen. It’s hard to pick Lindzen’s biggest whopper. Richard Littlemore thinks it is Lindzen’s untruth that there is no evidence for any change in polar ice sheets. Skeptical Science points to Lindzen’s untruth that the Earth has warmed much less than the models predicted. But then there’s also Lindzen’s untruth that all scientists agree that climate sensitivity is just 1 degree for a doubling of CO2.
Richard Littlemore thinks that Lindzen is showing an “increasing willingness to say things that are simply and demonstrably not true”., but I’m not so sure — in my very first post on climate change, way back in 2004 I concluded:
I find Lindzen’s systematic misrepresentation of the report that he helped author completely inexcusable.
Lindzen is displaying the same disregard for truth as always.
