Climate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities... but,

  • What do scientists say about climate change?


  • Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm?

Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world's leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change.




Dr. Richard Lindzen, among many others, refers to this type of narrative as hysteria, and argues that climate scientists raising this issue (global warming) have been demonized.


He's one of the world's top experts in the field and lead author of "Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks," Chapter 7 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Third Assessment Report on climate change.


He is a dynamical meteorologist with interests in the broad topics of climate, planetary waves, monsoon meteorology, planetary atmospheres, and hydrodynamic instability.


His research involves studies of the role of the tropics in mid-latitude weather and global heat transport, the moisture budget and its role in global change, the origins of ice ages, seasonal effects in atmospheric transport, stratospheric waves, and the observational determination of climate sensitivity.


He has made major contributions to the development of the current theory for the Hadley Circulation, and pioneered the study of how ozone photochemistry, radiative transfer, and dynamics interact with each other.


He is also the Emeritus Sloan Professor of Meteorology at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In many of his lectures, he has pointed out how policymakers were heavily involved with the IPCC and their publications. He is one of many to do so.
