MIT Climate Scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen on EU’s climate deal: EU ‘harnessing the hysteria over speculative global warming in the service of economic suicide’

“This year is the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I: a war where Europe demonstrated its capacity to harness hysteria in the service of suicide.  It is only fitting that the EU is celebrating this anniversary by harnessing the hysteria over speculative global warming (a phenomenon that has actually been hiding for 18 years), in the service of economic suicide by calling for a roll back of the industrial era despite the clear evidence that such action will serve to increase unemployment, ruin competitiveness and increase poverty.

Europeans commonly argue that the EU has preserved peace on the continent (ignoring the fact that they have depended on the US for defense during the Cold War).  However, even if this were correct, it is clear that the EU has done nothing to curb Europeans’ suicidal instincts.  Indeed, it appears to be abetting them.  Fortunately, this time Europe has included escape clauses whereby any nation is free to ignore its siren call.  However, the instinct remains their ideal.”
