The first sentence alone discounts the idea that many of the claims about man's impact on the environment are substantiated by the facts. The second sentence forward dismisses the more radical claims made in the name of AGW. The tenor of Lindzen's article, though, is that much of the claims about AGW are unsubstantiated and amount to fearmongering and political posturing.

But there is a more sinister side to this feeding frenzy. Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.
Quote:
Alarm rather than genuine scientific curiosity, it appears, is essential to maintaining funding. And only the most senior scientists today can stand up against this alarmist gale, and defy the iron triangle of climate scientists, advocates and policymakers.
