The online news channel msnbc.com has interviewed Lovelock and he is now admitting that has was being ‘alarmist’ about climate change and ‘extrapolating too far’. Ideally, he says, “I would be a little more cautious - but then that would have spoilt the book”.
I found this section particularly interesting: "In the late 1980s and early 1990s it was routinely predicted that ‘within 25 years’ (i.e. by now) we would be living in an unrecognisable world, southern Europe scorched, the Arctic melting, seas engulfing major cities such as New York and London, poverty and misery on the rise."
Because this is EXACTLY why I've been so suspicious of the claims that the global warming lobby having been coming out with.
