“A lot of investment in green technology has been a giant scam, if well intentioned.”

“A lot of investment in green technology has been a giant scam, if well intentioned.”

The quote, and entire interview, are significant for two reasons. First, the interview is seeped with many skeptical opinions about human caused global warming, is very critical of that movement’s effort to politicize science, and the person being interviewed is James Lovelock, the founder of of the concept of Gaia, a former strong advocate of global warming but now a skeptic.

Most significant however is where the interview is published. It is in Nature, one of the most important and influential science journals, which previously has been aggressively pushing global warming politics for years. That they allowed these politically incorrect opinions within their walls and then broadcast them to their readers signals a major cultural shift within the science community. It is beginning to be acceptable to be a skeptic again!

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!

 

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

 
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.

 

“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

 

All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.

 

Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    To the leftist, he’s just another idiot to be discarded now that he is no longer useful. Still, it is a surprise from Nature. Obviously, someone was asleep at the switch.

    “The thing we’ve all forgotten is the heat storage of the ocean — it’s a thousand times greater than the atmosphere and the surface. You can’t change that very rapidly.”

    He suggests that the expected heat is “hiding” in the oceans. That has become a standard argument, lately. But why don’t climatologists and the public suspect that the recent heating may have been due to the ocean giving up some of its heat, rather than human activity being the cause? The oceans cannot keep heating up forever, at some point they must give up that heat, otherwise they would have boiled away billions of years ago.

    The ocean hypothesis is a two edged sword. If it is possible that the oceans are the reason that the Earth isn’t heating right now, it could be just as possible that they are the reason (not man) that the Earth was heating between the years ~1970 and ~2000.

    I wonder if there will be fallout on Nature for publishing this.
    Anyway good to see cracks in the wall put up by the GW faithful.
    (Maybe there are still some journal editors with more common sense than school administrators!)

    Agree that the big story is that Nature would even publish it. Its perhaps a hopeful sign that the millennium has come. ;)
