High Priest of Global Warming Hysteria Cult Recants

James Lovelock, one of the high priests of the Global Warming Hysteria Cult has recanted!

Here, I offer a series of quotes from the MSNBC link (above). After each quote, I add my reaction/rebuttal. Remember, this is MSNBC. So, expect that -- even in the face of this latest recantation -- that they will still push the Global Warming party line.
“James Lovelock, the maverick scientist who became a guru to the environmental movement with his ‘Gaia’ theory of the Earth as a single organism, has admitted to being ‘alarmist’ about climate change and says other environmental commentators, such as Al Gore, were too.”
Click here for an overview of climate change science demonstrating why human activity is not a threat (and never will be).
“The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time… it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising -- carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that”
Actually, the majority of the major datasets
show over 10 years of global cooling.

“He said human-caused carbon dioxide emissions were driving an increase in the global temperature, but added that the effect of the oceans was not well enough understood and could have a key role.”
Click here and see that all of the temperature fluctuations of the last century can be entirely explained by two factors -- The Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) and the very slight, very consistent warming of 0.5C per century ever since the planet emerged from the Little Ice Age.

Click here for a more general explanation of the impact of the AMO.
“As ‘an independent and a loner,’ he said he did not mind saying ‘All right, I made a mistake.’ He claimed a university or government scientist might fear an admission of a mistake would lead to the loss of funding.”
Nice to hear a recovering alarmist finally admit the obvious (follow the money).

Click here and here and see what I mean.
“the rate of warming in recent years had been less than expected by the climate models”
Actually, the very core of the alarmist cabal has (unwittingly) demonstrated (at a 95% confidence level) that ALL of the IPCC computer models have been (by the standards established by NOAA) invalidated.

In the previous link, some quibbled over the significance of “statistically significant” vs. an absolutely flat (or down) trend line. Fine, we now have the most reliable dataset of all (the RSS satellite data) showing a cooling trend in excess of the NOAA standard of 15 years:
