Former Warming Alarmist – “This Meaningless Green Drivel”
Posted by Tory Aardvark
James Lovelock, was once a green guru and an exponent of the junk science of Anthropogenic Global Warming, now Lovelock admits he was alarmist and
extrapolated too far made scary predictions of Environmental Armageddon.
Lovelock has admitted he was wrong and turned his back on the Green ecomentalists and their meaningless green drivel.
He was once a guru to environmentalists, claiming climate change would kill billions of humans by the end of this century. But it seems James Lovelock has had a change of heart. On the eve of a major environmental summit, he has attacked the modern green movement – declaring its theories ‘meaningless drivel’.
Almost half a century after he revealed his Gaia theory, which inspired a generation of activists, the former Nasa scientists said he believed that rising sea levels were not a problem and that wind turbines were ‘useless’.
The 92-year-old described the modern green movement as a ‘religion’, which used guilt to gain support.
Speaking about climate change, he said: ‘I’m not worried about sea-level rises.’
He added: ‘At worst, I think it will be 2ft a century.’
Slamming environmentalists, he said: ‘It just so happens that the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion.
Shame it took Lovelock so long to discover what we have been saying for years, it is not science, it is a religion based upon fear, guilt and junk science.
‘I don’t think people have noticed that, but it’s got all the sort of terms that religions use. The greens use guilt. You can’t win people round by saying they are guilty for putting CO2 in the air.’
Mr Lovelock said he was a firm supporter of nuclear power and even voiced his support for fracking – the controversial process of extracting gas from rock deep underground, opposed by the green movement.
He said: ‘Gas is almost a giveaway in the US at the moment. They’ve gone for fracking in a big way.
‘Let’s be pragmatic and sensible and get Britain to switch everything to methane. We should be going mad on it.’
In an interview, Mr Lovelock described existing theories of ‘sustainable development‘ – a key topic for discussion at the upcoming summit – as ‘drivel’.
With over 362 different definitions of “sustainable development” Lovelock is right again, it is all meaningless Green drivel.
Still on the positive the side for the committed ecomentalist though Lovelock’s book is rubbish by his own admission, the book can still be composted and returned to Gaia.
