Give us names

In Paul Krugman's column on climate-change deniers ("Betraying the Planet," July 4), he writes that researchers at MIT are predicting global temperatures will rise higher than previously predicted, but he doesn't name any of these researchers. He also doesn't mention the field of these researchers. Could it be that this research is being done by computers? If so, it's not surprising that Mr. Krugman didn't mention it, because computer models on weather have proved to be wrong so often.

Richard Lindzen is a professor of meteorology in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and he denies man is causing global warming.

I'll put Lindzen's expertise up against any scientist Krugman can name if he'll name any.
