Global Warming a Religion, Say Climate Scientists

According to many scientists, Global Warming has become the religion of "Climatism" -- with a global congregation led by a clergy of institutional science.  However, "the cracks in the scientific claims for catastrophic warming are…becoming much harder for the supporters to defend."
"Global climate alarmism has been costly to society, and it has the potential to be vastly more costly. It has also been damaging to science, as scientists adjust both data and even theory to accommodate politically correct positions."
-- Dr. Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

-- From "Has global warming hit a plateau? -- The skeptics' favorite scientist" by The Week Magazine Staff 8/24/13

Richard Lindzen is a climate change skeptic with a novel theory. The MIT meteorologist concedes that greenhouse gases cause warming, but he believes Earth will be able to regulate its temperature, like a thermostat, thanks to clouds. Lindzen argues that when surface temperature increases, the moist air that rises from the tropics will rain out more of its moisture, leaving less to form the wispy, high clouds known as cirrus. Just like greenhouse gases, those cirrus clouds trap heat in the atmosphere, so a decrease in them would counteract the increase of greenhouse gases.

From "Climate Science Exploited for Political Agenda, According to Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons" by Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), posted at The Sacramento Bee 8/28/13

Climatism or global warming alarmism is the most prominent recent example of science being coopted to serve a political agenda, writes Richard Lindzen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the in the fall 2013 issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. He compares it to past examples: Lysenkoism in the Soviet Union, and the eugenics movement.

. . . he writes, "A profound dumbing down of the discussion…interacts with the ascendancy of incompetents." Prizes and accolades are awarded for politically correct statements, even if they defy logic. "Unfortunately, this also often induces better scientists to join the pack in order to preserve their status," Lindzen adds.

In normal science, models are judged by how well they agree with nature, Lindzen explains. In the climate "debate," however, the models are given a claim to validity independent of agreement with real observations.
