Or, Science By Rhetoric As Opposed To Science By Evidence and Learning.
Based on the YouTube video short "Lindzen - Why you should not worry"
After watching this video, I went through the comments and discovered that Dr. Lindzen and the fiction writer Michael Crichton were pals. What an interesting insight, the cynical scientist and the master of science fiction story telling. Given Lindzen's performance in this video, and every other one I've watched, I can see how the pupil learned his lessons well.
Look at this, or any other, YouTube performance of Dr. Lindzen mocking climatologists and you will see echoes of rhetoric over evidence reinforced by drama substituting for substance. Hallmarks of the successful science fiction fantasist.
But, Dr. Lindzen, what does that have to do with understanding what is happening within our atmosphere and the greater global heat distribution engine?
I wish I could ask Dr. Lindzen a few questions such as, please explain why he ignores so much important Earth observation information in his various performances?
