Freeman Dyson : “the (climate) experts are deluded”

Among my friends, I do not find much of a consensus. Most of us are sceptical and do not pretend to be experts. My impression is that the experts are deluded because they have been studying the details of climate models for 30 years and they come to believe the models are real. After 30 years they lose the ability to think outside the models. And it is normal for experts in a narrow area to think alike and develop a settled dogma. The dogma is sometimes right and sometimes wrong. In astronomy this happens all the time, and it is great fun to see new observations that prove the old dogmas wrong.

Unfortunately things are different in climate science because the arguments have become heavily politicised. To say that the dogmas are wrong has become politically incorrect. As a result, the media generally exaggerate the degree of consensus and also exaggerate the importance of the questions.

    UN CLIMATE CHANGE CONFERENCE in DURBAN / SOUTH-AFRICA
    (28. Nov – 09. Dec 2011)

    Did you see the IPCC is starting to get smarter, like put the conference in the Southern Hemisphere in Summer in case you get a heat wave. I bet there will be lots of climate justice requests for free money in Africa on this one.

      Wicked hey, and all it cost the greenees was a ticket to see it, or just like here, look it up on the inconvenient internet that Al Gore said he invented. And what a shame, something he said he invented came back to bite him in the buttocks.

    That is one scientist I agree with on more points than any other! I liked his closing statements!
