A Zoom presentation arranged by the ICSF and Clintel held on 31 March 2021. Re-recorded on 2nd April due to disruptions by trolls who failed to prevent a very informative and insightful Zoom talk by Professor Lindzen.

Professor Emeritus Richard S Lindzen is a world‐renowned dynamical meteorologist with interests in the broad topics of climate, planetary waves, monsoon meteorology, planetary atmospheres and hydrodynamic instability. His research involved studies of the role of the tropics in mid‐latitude weather and global heat transport, the moisture budget and its role in global change, the origins of ice ages, seasonal effects in atmospheric transport, stratospheric waves, and the observational determination of climate sensitivity. He has published more than 200 scientific papers and books. From 1983, when he joined the faculty at MIT, until he retired in 2013, he was Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology. He has received numerous prestigious awards, including Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi and is a Fellow of several US and international learned Societies.

Text of the talk can be read on CLINTEL’s website:

Here is a paper by Dr. Lindzen, discussing how faulty science, like eugenics, can become broadly adopted in society.

In this paper, Dr. Lindzen looks at the origins of the alleged consensus on climate change.

Interestingly, the late Michael Crichton had also explored how politicized science is dangerous, referencing the eugenics movement as an example of how bad science can take hold, once politicized.

The post The Imaginary Climate Crisis – A talk by Richard Lindzen first appeared on Friends of Science Calgary.

The theory was eugenics, and its history is so dreadful — and, to those who were caught up in it, so embarrassing — that it is now rarely discussed. But it is a story that should be well known to every citizen, so that its horrors are not repeated.

MICHAEL CRICHTON

Eugenics laws took hold in Alberta and were in place for 44 years as discussed in “Eugenic Policies in Alberta: From the Systemic to the Systematic?”1996CanLIIDocs169Download

Athabasca University has just released a new book on the history of the eugenics movement in Alberta: “Psychiatry and the Legacies of Eugenics:
Historical Studies of Alberta and Beyond

It is deeply concerning that depopulation mantras are integral to much of the climate change movement.
