Obama Endorsing Physicist Resigns From APS Over Globull Warming

Did I mention that he’s won a Nobel Prize for physics?

The global warming theory left him out in the cold.

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”

The official position of the American Physical Society (APS) supports the theory that man’s actions have inexorably led to the warming of the planet, through increased emissions of carbon dioxide.

Giaever does not agree — and put it bluntly and succinctly in the subject line of his email, reprinted at Climate Depot, a website devoted to debunking the theory of man-made climate change.

“I resign from APS,” Giaever wrote.

Giaever was cooled to the statement on warming theory by a line claiming that “the evidence is inconvertible.”

“In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?” he wrote in an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics society.

“The claim … is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period,” his email message said.

Rather than steeling some thunder from Marc Morano at Climate Depot, head on over and read the entire letter.

Considering how human society tends to advance during warm periods, you’d think the Warmists would be thrilled by this warm period, which is primarily natural. Global warmings are “good times.”

Oh, and, per the Climate Depot post

Giaever was one of President Obama’s key scientific supporters in 2008. Giaever joined over 70 Nobel Science Laureates in endorsing Obama in an October 29, 2008 open letter.

    There is no doubt that the increase in co2 has caused the earth to warm.

    For me this is never an issue that is in doubt. The problem is that studies have been done to show that mans overall contribution to this amount is only 3.4 percent per year.

    Reducing 40 percent of our co2 signature would reduce this amount by a little over 1 percent.

    Hence by raping mans ability to produce, consume and survive we would reduce our footprint on the co2 signature scale from………………

    3.4

    to

    2.3 percent.

    Wow. Thats a real reason to destroy civilization.

    I should have said CONTRIBUTED not caused.

  3. We certainly do contribute a tiny bit, more so with methane, but, your central point about all the warmist ideas, plans, and legislation being worthless is a good one. Of course, they don’t care if a difference would be made, as it is about control, power, and money. Heck, if they solved the issue, then they’d no longer have anything yo bitch about, and would have to invent something else.

    You forget your other posts, Teach. Many of these warmists are also anti-capitalist anti-consumerist cultists. Thus, the good thing for mankind is bad for them. Bad things for mankind are what they want.

    However, that does bring up a quandary. If it is true what the warmists believe that a warming earth is bad, then shouldn’t they be for it? Since it will control the increase of human population and consumerism.

    However, the warming WILL be good for mankind and its food and bio-production. Thus, they should be against the warming on the grounds that it will increase our consumption, not on the grounds that it will warm the planet.
