Lindzen Presentation

This is a very enjoyable presentation by Richard Lindzen on climate and global warming.  Folks who have watched my video won’t find much new, but Lindzen is the horse’s mouth, as it were.  Via Maggies Farm

Requires RealPlayer, which scared me because for years RealPlayer was among the most annoying of spyware carriers, but the installation seemed OK.  I like the format of video plus synchronized slides – I struggle with this in putting my presentations on the web.

    It may be just my system, but I cannot get the Fermilab video of Lindzen to run. It opens windows galore of the opening slide and is done. I even added the latest Real Media player.

    Could someone please let them know of this problem. The site the link sends you to here has no other connections.

  • If you don’t want to or can’t watch the entire video, I archived the key slides from the presentation at my blog (which I assume is ok with Dr. Lindzen since the first slide says anyone can email him for a pdf of all his slides)

    I like Lindzen a lot, but for the love of god lay off the text blocks in power point.

  • There’s a “bundle” out there floating around called the K-Lite Codec Pack… basically, they rip the codec portions out of the various media players out there (Real, Quicktime, and a few dozen more obscure ones), bundle them into one-stop Windows Install package, and include Media Player Lite – a clone of the old NT4 media player that just plays media (and reasonably well) without reporting everything you do to Microsoft or Apple or whomever. I’ve been using it for years to play Real Media without the associated RealPlayer crap. I’ve never gotten a virus from it (and I know how to look), but I’ve been running Linux on my desktop for the last few years so it’s been awhile since I’ve installed it. Like anything else from the Internet, be careful.

    If we could clone ten Richard Lindzens the AGW scare would be trampled like the Grenadian army during the US invasion.
