Richard Lindzen

“Believing CO2 controls the climate is pretty close to believing in magic”


Richard Lindzen is a dynamical meteorologist who has contributed to the development of theories for the Hadley Circulation, hydrodynamic instability theory, internal gravity waves, atmospheric tides and the quasi-biennial oscillation of the stratosphere. His current research is focused on climate sensitivity, the role of cirrus clouds in climate, and the determination of the equator to pole temperature difference.

His academic degrees are all from Harvard University. He is the recipient of various awards and is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Geophysical Union, the American Meteorological Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Between 1983 and 2013, Lindzen was the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at MIT. He assumed emeritus status as of July of 2013. Prior to 1983, he held professorships at the University of Chicago and Harvard University. He is a distinguished Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of Science of the Cato Institute. He has also been a distinguished visiting scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and a lead author of the 3rd Scientific Assessment of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
