Climate Change: Global warm-mongers say they can’t name a single scientist who doesn’t agree with them. Well, here’s one: Nobel laureate Ivan Giaever, who just left a scientific society because he believes the debate isn’t over.
We keep hearing from Al Gore and others that the debate is over, that the “consensus” is that man-made carbon dioxide emissions are heating the planet. The only scientists who don’t believe in global warming, we are told, have been bought and paid for by big polluters.
So what do they do with Giaever? He won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1973 for his work on superconductors. He was a professor in the School of Engineering and School of Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also supported Barack Obama in his 2008 presidential campaign.
But the Norwegian scientist is no longer a member of the American Physical Society, the second-largest organization of physicists in the world. He resigned last week because he “cannot live” with the APS’ position that there is “incontrovertible” evidence that man’s CO2 emissions are causing global warming.
Clearly, Giaever doesn’t believe the debate is over. (IBD)
