James Lovelock Then and Now

As icy waters pour over the gunwales of the sinking global warming hoax, rats begin to abandon ship. Here[1]‘s environmental scientist James Lovelock in 2007, well before the climate crisis was widely known to be a swindle:

Before this century is over, billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic.

In 2009, Lovelock admitted[2],

Most of the “green” stuff is verging on a gigantic scam.

But even then, the human race had only one chance to save “up to 90 per cent” of the population from perishing from global warming:

There is one way we could save ourselves and that is through the massive burial of charcoal. It would mean farmers turning all their agricultural waste — which contains carbon that the plants have spent the summer sequestering — into non-biodegradable charcoal, and burying it in the soil. Then you can start shifting really hefty quantities of carbon out of the system and pull the CO2 down quite fast.

Sounds like an expensive project; good thing it won’t be necessary. In light of the climate’s failure to get any warmer, Lovelock now says that C02 is preventing[3] a climate crisis:

It is worth thinking that what we are doing in creating all these carbon emissions, far from being something frightful, is stopping the onset of a new ice age. If we hadn’t appeared on the earth, it would be due to go through another ice age and we can look at our part as holding that up.

Or maybe not, because as even casual observers have noticed,

…all the theoretical stuff … tends to be very dodgy and I think they are seeing this with climate change.

Let’s hope these clowns make the most of all the grant money showered upon them at taxpayer expense. The credibility they sold for it will take a generation to regain.

Lovelock: C02 will kill us all, or save us all, or maybe…
