Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Resigns Over Global Warming
fox news ^ | 9/13/2011

Posted on 09/16/2011 10:26:15 AM PDT by EBH

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 incontrovertible."

"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.

A spokesman for the APS confirmed to FoxNews.com that the Nobel Laureate had declined to pay his annual dues in the society and had resigned. He also noted that the society had no plans to revise its statement.

Yes. Because the science has become polluted by politics. And politics in America, all too often for me, is more akin to religion than science.

I thought he was going to say, “The MASS of the evidence is against it.” :-)

the libs are already dismissing this, because his Nobel is in nano-tech (or something) and he never did a study on climate or global warming.

Add this to that “save the world” solar panel company and it’s nothing more than a big scam. It would be fine if they were stealing from each other...but they stole from us to pay that already definct company.

A most perceptive point. The ardent believers of "man-caused global warming" have morphed from defending a scientific theory to defending a secular religious belief -- that is, the scientific method has been replaced by religious dogma and the fervor of zealots.
