From Dr. Richard Lindzen:
To a significant extent, the issue of climate change revolves around the elevation of the commonplace to the ancient level of ominous omen. In a world where climate change has always been the norm, climate change is now taken as punishment for sinful levels of consumption. In a world where we experience temperature changes of tens of degrees in a single day, we treat changes of a few tenths of a degree in some statistical residue, known as the global mean temperature anomaly (GATA), as portents of disaster.
One correction: it is not “we” who treat changes of a few tenths of a degree as portents of disaster, it is the Left who treats changes of a few tenths of a degree as portents of disaster.
