I suppose you know the difference between 5ºC and 5ºF?
5ºC = 9ºF.

That'll be a 'novel' experience.

It always pays to have money.

So what?

I'm getting the feeling I've heard these predictions before.

Nuclear war becomes increasingly unlikely as the decades pass.

We are very lucky to live in a world where we can retire in style. I only hope that it continues for those who follow. Carbon taxes, geo-engineering and all the rest of the left-wing global warming bullshit doesn't fit very well in that outlook.

Some Lovelock quotes:
“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,”
"I was 'alarmist' about climate change & so was Gore!'The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing."

Who? About 95% of the world's climate scientists.

But not conservatives since they don't believe in science.

That's fine, I don't know any deniers, do you?

Thanks for posting this link.
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.
“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,” he added.
He pointed to Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and Tim Flannery’s “The Weather Makers” as other examples of “alarmist” forecasts of the future...

'I made a mistake'
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.

CO2 is the culprit. CO2 'drove end to last ice age.'

P.S. I already posted the research paper. CO2 leads the temperature rise as it did in the past.

I wonder how many more of the big dogs are going to come to their senses.

I am reminded of the Lt. Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) Charcter in "The Bridge on the River Kwai" Not exactly the same situation, but I would think some of them are getting nervous. Not because of prosecution, that's not going to happen but of losing face last. Throwing in the towel early is more credible.

Funny. Consider that he is predicting that the earth is going to expereince an increase in temperatures of five degrees and yet he also predicted a nuclear winter where the temperatures will if anything be colder. Of course if you have a world wide nucelar war then of course civilization will collaspe for a period of time before restarting.

More like humorous. I have heard the predictions for worse hurricanes for seveal years in a row. The last hurricane that hit where I lived was more like a bad rain storm than anything else.

I sure there will be others predicting a dismal future. After all that sells while predicting the future is going to be better than now does not. If Orrell wants to sell his books then he will give the audience (you) what they want.
