MIT Climatologist Richard Lindzen on the politiciziation of global warming science


MIT's Richard Lindzen, one of the most-respected climatologists on the planet, speaks to the second annual International Conference on Climate Change in New York. Lindzen warns that scientists who embrace global warming alarmism are not necessarily good researchers. And that skeptics of global warming are not necessarily good researchers either.

The point, he argues, is to stay focused on the facts as they can be determined and to follow the science, not the political debate.
