One of the world’s foremost environmentalists has told MSNBC that his past views on global warming were “alarmist,” as, he said, were the views of other environmental commentators such as Al Gore. James Lovelock—who authored the Gaia theory—admitted, “The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books—mine included—because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened.”
Lovelock, a hero to the green movement, also acknowledged that temperatures haven’t increased as expected over the last 12 years. “There’s nothing much really happening yet. We were supposed to be halfway toward a frying world now,” he said.
Not surprisingly, this major story is not receiving much attention in the mainstream media.
