The guy has been sold out. Climate skeptics are mostly sold out people or illiterate people. There argument is as illogical as the argument of any religious fanatic.
-- "Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years"
The warming data clearly indicates that rate of temperature of last 50 years is far higher than any other period in history
-- Increase in CO2 in atmosphere directly correlates net fossil fuel burned
-- All computer models including from climate skeptics show that earth will warm with increased CO2
-- "...we are doomed unless we reduce carbon-dioxide emissions to zero. Effectively this means either reducing the population to zero, or going back 10,000 years..."
It is not the emission, but the net emission. Today we generate more electricity from non-fossil fuel than all of electricity we used to generate just 40 years ago. So it is not going back 10000 years. With proper conservation and focus on renewable, it is possible to get rid of fossil fuel based energy altogether without going back or reducing population.
-- He claims that without such doomsday predictions, there want be a need for IPCC. However, IPCC was formed because scientific study prior to it pointed towards doomsday scenario.
-- "The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today."
This may be optimum (I don't know) level of CO2 if other variables are kept constant, such as temperature. However, at this level of CO2, there is not a single climate model in the world which predicts temperature increase less than 10C. At this level of increase, 70% of the land will be unhabitable without AC. Also, 70% of the land won't be able to sustain any plants which are in existence today.
-- "There has been no significant warming for 18 years while we have emitted 25 per cent of all the carbon dioxide ever emitted."
Except for one single outlier year 1998, the temperature has steadily increased by 0.2C a decade.
