The UK Inquiry Into UNIPCC “Science”

A video of the UK parliamentary Inquiry into “the science”. Picking over the bones of the stillborn UNIPCC AR5.

A very long video – 3 hours – the sceptics (Professor Richard Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Nicholas Lewis, Climate researcher, and Donna Laframboise, Author ) seem to start at 1:39:30  – 11:07:40am GMT

You’ve had your chance to sell your book,” he told Donna Laframboise who had flown over from Canada especially to testify); and the wearied patience teetering on the brink of Olympian contempt of Dr Richard Lindzen, professor of atmospheric physics at MIT.

Lindzen, you rather felt, has really had quite enough of trying explain to idiots why it’s perfectly possible to “believe” in the existence of  anthropogenic global warming without feeling the urge to bomb the global economy back to the dark ages in order to mitigate it…. “
