    You think maybe the article was written tongue-in-cheek?:)

    If it hadn't been published in June i would think it was a April Fools joke.

    Imagine that. Using wind and wood. What a concept!!!!

    Looks a lot like the Dyna Rig on Maltese Falcon. And I don't see how to get a cargo crane over the boat to handle cargo.

    No he doesnt - he says

    "Lovelock still believes anthropogenic global warming is occurring and that mankind must lower its greenhouse gas emissions, but says it’s now clear the doomsday predictions, including his own (and Al Gore’s) were incorrect"

    Being unsure of the final results may mean that they are not as severe as first thought

    BUT

    on global warming: “One thing that being a scientist has taught me is that you can never be certain about anything. You never know the truth. You can only approach it and hope to get a bit nearer to it each time. You iterate towards the truth. You don’t know it.”

    he admits we can never be too sure of the result.

    Time will prove the whole AGW thing of massive doom scenarios a fraud.
    There are paintings from the medieval warm period when Greenland was green of Europe, England showing waterlines of major historic landmark buildings unchanged from the past till today.

    On your say so ? Basing future predictions on the past when so many variables no longer apply is a foolish game.

    Cleverer people than you are not game to make any predictions, as it is far too complex a topic.
