MIT Professor Says Changes From Global Warming Are "Too Small To Account For"

As the professor so aptly sums it up: "Global warming, climate change, all these things are just a dream come true for politicians. The opportunities for taxation, for policies, for control, for crony capitalism are just immense, you can see their eyes bulge."

Via CBS (Boston):
A new proposal on climate change focuses on public health, energy, transportation and basic infrastructure.

Under the plan unveiled Tuesday, $40 million will go to help cities and towns in Massachusetts shore up the power supply and keep the lights on.
Ten million will be earmarked for the coast, to protect it from rising sea levels.
But will it work?

While Gov. Deval Patrick and others painted a dire picture of what global warming might do to us, others are more skeptical.

MIT Professor Richard Lindzen is a leading international expert on climate change.

"The changes that have occurred due to global warning are too small to account for," he told WBZ-TV. "It has nothing to do with global warming, it has to do with where we live."

Lindzen endorses sensible preparedness and environmental protection, but sees what he terms "catastrophism" in the climate change horror stories.

"Global warming, climate change, all these things are just a dream come true for politicians. The opportunities for taxation, for policies, for control, for crony capitalism are just immense, you can see their eyes bulge," he says.

"Even many of the people who are supportive of sounding the global warning alarm, back off from catastrophism," Lindzen said. "It's the politicians and the green movement that like to portray catastrophe."
