### Richard Lindzen in Newsweek: Why so gloomy?

There's no such thing as a "perfect" temperature

In the new issue of Newsweek, Prof Richard Lindzen of MIT explains that climate has always been changing, there is nothing special about one temperature as opposed to other temperatures, models can't be trusted just because someone says that he doesn't know another, correct explanation, and the CO2 growth or a hypothetical warming will bring as many benefits as problems if not more.

Roger Revelle, a late climate scientist, is described as Prophet Al Gore's mentor. Do you remember who was the mentor of Moses? Revelle, referred to as a scientific giant - because of his 6-foot-4 height (just like Bill O'Reilly), because of his fathership of USCD, and because he was one of the first scientists who studied global warming - argued that the existing knowledge didn't justify any action except if a non-climatic explanation existed.
