Lennart Bengtsson, IPCC Alarmism and The Royal Swedish Academy

The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) announces in a press release:
  • Professor Lennart Bengtsson, one of Sweden’s leading climate scientists, has joined the GWPF’s Academic Advisory Council.
Judith Curry comments:
  • The whole concept behind IPCC is basically wrong. (Lennart Bengtsson)
  • I regard this as a very interesting and significant event, that runs counter to the near universal trend in academic circles to attempt to ignore and marginalize organizations and individuals that are skeptical of UNFCCC/IPCC global warming science, impacts, and/or solutions.
LB has thus withdrawn his earlier support of IPCC climate alarmism as expressed in the Statement on the Scientific Basis of Climate Change by The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences authored by LB. 

LB has thus turned into a skeptic of climate alarmism led by his conscience as scientist. By the same logic LB now has to withdraw also his Statement in the name of The Royal Academy in support of IPCC.  

Let us hope that LB has the courage to do so. When that is done current Swedish climate politics will have no scientific basis and will collapse, the sooner the better.

PS LB now uses Der Spiegel to propagate his message as converted skeptic.
