UK HOUSE OF LORDS PEER TELLS WHY HE CHANGED TO BECOMING A MILD CLIMATE SKEPTIC

Posted 20 January 2015

Viscount Matt Ridley sits in the UK's House of Lords. He also writes about science, environment and economics. His books on a wide range of topics have won various awards and sold a million copies.  In the article below just printed in The Times of London, he explains how he started out believing in claims of man-made "global warming" but as he got deeper into its study, he became a "lukewarm" skeptic, a change that made him the target of warmist propaganda. The paywalled op-ed is reproduced below.

Climate models say temperatures should climb right along with the rise in CO2 emissions, yet emissions rose from the 1940s through the 1970s, when scientists were warning of a coming ice age. And for the past two decades, CO2 emissions have continued to rise while temperatures have been in a holding pattern for the past 18 years. - US researcher Sterling Burnett.
