Winds of Change
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.
“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened,” Lovelock said.
“The climate is doing its usual tricks. There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now,” he said.
“Supposed to. ” Don’t you just hate it when nature doesn’t cooperate with the narrative? Unfortunately, we’re left living with 40 years of really bad legislation and regulations – chock-a-block full of good intentions though they may be – and an EPA concerned with protecting their own jobs and entitlements more than anything else.
