American Physical Society Ready to Bail on Global Warming Hoax

The American Physical Society is the second largest group of physicists in the world, behind only the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. It has never been the place to look for dopes. In the near future, it will not be the place to look for willing dupes:

The American Physical Society (APS) has signalled a dramatic turnabout in its position on “climate change” by appointing three notorious climate skeptics to its panel on public affairs (POPA).

They are:

Professor Richard Lindzen, formerly Alfred P Sloan Professor of Meteorology at Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a highly regarded physicist who once described climate change alarmism on The Larry King Show as “mainly just like little kids locking themselves in dark closets to see how much they can scare each other and themselves.”

John Christy, Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, who has written: “I’m sure the majority (but not all) of my IPCC colleagues cringe when I say this, but I see neither the developing catastrophe nor the smoking gun proving that human activity is to blame for most of the warming we see.”

Judith Curry, Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech, a former Warmist (and still a self-described “luke warmer”) who has infuriated many of her more extremist colleagues by defending skeptics and by testifying to the US House Subcommittee on the Environment that the uncertainties in forecasting climate science are much greater than the alarmists will admit.

As Anthony Watts has noted, this is news guaranteed to make a Warmist’s head explode.

The reason it’s so significant is that it comes only three years after one of the APS’s most distinguished members – Professor Hal Lewis – resigned in disgust at its endorsement of what he called “the global warming scam.” …

It is inconceivable, given the new panel’s constitution, that when the APS releases its new position statement on climate change later this year it will be anything other than broadly skeptical of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming.

Given that you would have to be pathologically gullible to let conspicuously slimy characters like Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri convince you that insufficient taxation and regulation are making it be too hot out, why have so many scientists allowed themselves to be stampeded with the low information voter herd? Hal Lewis explains:

I think it is the money…. There are indeed trillions of dollars involved, to say nothing of the fame and glory (and frequent trips to exotic islands) that go with being a member of the club. Your own Physics Department (of which you are chairman) would lose millions a year if the global warming bubble burst. When Penn State absolved Mike Mann of wrongdoing, and the University of East Anglia did the same for Phil Jones, they cannot have been unaware of the financial penalty for doing otherwise.

But people with courage and integrity continue to break ranks. Soon we will reach a tipping point, where scientists will have to denounce the hoax to have any professional credibility, government grants and media fawning be damned. Then the entire climate change farce, which has cost the world untold fortunes, will collapse like a house of cards.

In the meantime, Obama’s EPA is working feverishly to exploit the hoax to restrict our liberties before it is forced to shift to a different hysterical lie.

house of cards
The state of liberals’ lucrative climate change lie.

    The problem is the panel is half physicists and half alarmists. When you argue with idiots all look stupid. The alarmists will contribute screeching and obfuscation to any report.

    It IS all about the money! There are a lot of liberal idiots who are heavily invested in the Chicago Carbon Exchange including Obama, Al Gore, George Soros and other vefarious characters. If they can’t tax the air, the scheme collapses.

    Um, no. Lindzen, Christy, and Curry are not on the panel, but on the expert workshop convened by the panel. The workshop will report to the panel.

    Dave Blount: American Physical Society Ready to Bail on Global Warming Hoax

    Probably not. It merely means the panel will listen to contrary views, but the very little science being produced by skeptics is mostly tangential. Nothing Lindzen, Christy or Curry has published in the literature has been sufficient to undermine the current consensus.

    Vefarious? Seriously?

    A “Carbon Tax” doesn’t tax the air, it taxes carbon before it’s burned.

    If you’re the “other” Larry, is the “real” Larry as dumb as you are?

  12. William Carr says:

    Even if the “expert workshop” were to issue a controversial recommendation, all APS members would be invited to vote on it before it would be adopted.

    Since the Global Warming Deniers are outnumbered 97 to 3, I don’t see that happening.

    But it’s amusing seeing them grasping at straws.

    Typical liberal. Can’t write two sentences without calling somebody a name. And it is all about the money just like the Club of Rome intends. Bring down the economy of the world to line their pockets. You’ve been had, William.

  16. William Carr says:

    I didn’t call you a name, I asked if you’re dumb !

    You said “If they can’t tax the air, the scheme collapses”.

    But a Carbon Tax doesn’t tax the air.

    Are you so taken in by the “Anti-Global Warming Rhetoric” that you seriously think a Carbon Tax is taxing the air itself?

    You poor fools keep crying “Conspiracy, Conspiracy”, but where’s your proof ?

    WE have actual Climate Scientists. They aren’t getting Rich, like the Koch Brothers and TransCanada.

    So if it’s all about the money… the guys making the most profit must be the ones that are leading you around by the nose.

    Please read more carefully, if that’s possible for you. I didn’t say that. The other larry did. And you should do some actual reading before showing how gullible you are. The “Global warming” hoax, started out as a speech given by AlGore in Rio, bascked by the Club of Rome and the corrupt UN, which you ought to at least Google before looking like a stupid child. It is all about the money, (Can you say GE?) And the warming and cooling of the climate follows the solar sunspot activity since 1700 (Bet you didn’t even look at that) without any CO2 mumbo-jumbo needed at all. You’ve been had by the folks that want to bring the US economy down, push agenda 21, grant sniffing professors who are afraid to disagree, since that’s how they make a living, and tax hungry politicians who know how gullible you are and are leading YOU around by the nose. The only profit involved are the leftist politicians and their stupid pawn . . . like you. Bet you never wondered how all the democrat politicians become millionaires AFTER being elected. Poor, gullible liberal. You’ll never see it coming.
