Skip to comments.American Physical Society: The First Major Scientific Institution To Reject Global Warming ?
Posted on 03/21/2014 9:18:28 AM PDT by Innovative
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).
If that list looks impressive, perhaps it's worth reminding ourselves of Hal Lewis's theory as to why so many scientific institutions have fallen for the scam.
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.
Yes the American Physical Society's change of heart is significant but we've a long way to go before that oil tanker turns round. Or, as Churchill might have said: "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

"American Physical Society Sees The Light: Will It Be The First Major Scientific Institution To Reject The Global Warming 'Consensus'?"
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step -- let's hope this is a first major step in the direction of the rejection of the entire global warming scam.
Global warming ping
So government grants are the cause of global warming?
The essence of the the scientific problem solving process is constant research, revision and proving, not consensus
One small step for men, one giant leap for mankind.
Engineers would never dare step off into the world of speculation like this. They know that to do so would be to create designs that would fail.
Also, good mathematics and good theory.
“Consensus science” is the last refuge of a scoundrel. Even one scientist with the truth, trumps 100,000,000 scientists who have “faith” in error.
I like it.
BLASPHEMY! These evil earth killers need to locked up! ;>}
“notorious” climate change skeptics?
no bias here...
I always get peeved when Obama, et al, use the term ‘every’ when talking about economists, scientists, etc. It gives the aura of consensus but no actual statistic on agreement. Ironically, ‘every’ economist, scientist, etc, ‘agrees’ with whatever any Dem is promoting. And Big Media NEVER questions that ‘fact’. It is enough to make one’s blood boil.
“Consensus science is the last refuge of a scoundrel. Even one scientist with the truth, trumps 100,000,000 scientists who have faith in error.”
The claim of a scientific “consensus” is bad enough. Couple that with the intimidation of and retaliation against scientists who dare to dissent and the climate change proponents’ approach becomes something much worse.
Having worked with R-12, I positively knew that R-12 liquid molecules -- upon release and expanding from liquid to gas -- are heavier than air. That means the R-12 molecule drops down, not up.
Having worked aboard Naval ships, I knew released R-12 was heavier than air because releasing R-12 aboard a ship tends to fill the entire hull with R-12 molecules ... pushing out air and killing humans trying to escape.
NASA..........what a disastrous turn this agency has taken under the Bamster. They were the epitome of space exploration and now they are nothing but junk scientists. I weep for our once great country.
The physicists will be the first to turn.
When I was in grad school in physics, the APS was the most important of the physics organizations.
The USA Grant Programs need a serious overhaul because the billions/trillions? that make up the leftist fraudulent applications netting windfalls, in which Democrats/Republicans give away taxpayer dollars by the wheelbarrow full to install bad politicians and study things like ‘the effect of Marjuana on a Rhesus Monkey’ (1960s) to “a bug on a treadmill’ (2009?) are seriously in need of downsizing or elimination altogether.
