Welcome to Blackjay
Our first post of the new year comprises a link to a YouTube video of Jordan Peterson interviewing leading climate scientist Richard Lindzen. Lindzen is no right wing nut job. He is not even a “climate change denier”. He believes some warming of the lower atmosphere may be occurring because of CO2 increase. His beef is the hysterical over-reaction promoted by the media and fund-seeking scientists with talk of “tipping-points”, “run away greenhouse effects” and the like.
On the way he makes some disturbing comments about the bureaucratization of our universities and the sinister, behind-the-scenes control of some scientific journals.
In our view, his measured, sensible commentary should be compulsory viewing for all decision makers and educators.
Comments and guest posts are welcome but we do not tolerate rudeness or obscenity. We don’t care what you think, we care how you act.
