Climate Change Politics

Nobel Prize Winning Scientist: Obama is “Dead Wrong” on Global Warming!

Dr. Ivar Giaever won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1973, then in 2008 he joined with over 70 other Nobel laureates in endorsing Obama for President, a decision he may now regret. Speaking at a Global Warming forum last week, Giaever denounced global warming fanaticism and mocked President Obama for claiming that climate change is the gravest threat we face today, saying the very idea was “ridiculous” before adding, “I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.” 

“I would say that basically global warming is a non-problem.” 

Dr. Giaver resigned from the American Physical Society in 2011 after they released the following statement.

“The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.”

 

In his speech he discussed the following:

I resigned from the society in 2011. First: nothing in science is incontrovertible. Second: the “measured” average temperature increase in 100 years or so, is 0.8 Kelvin. Third: since the Physical Society claim it has become warmer, why is everything better than before? Forth: the maximum average temperature ever measured was in 1998, 17 years ago. When will we stop wasting money on alternative energy?

 

On the religion of Global Warming:
“Global warming really has become a new religion. Because you cannot discuss it. It’s not proper. It is like the Catholic Church.”

Giaever argued that there’s been no global warming for the last 17 years or so (based on satellite records), weather hasn’t gotten more extreme and that global temperature has only slightly risen — and that’s based on data being “fiddled” with by scientists, he said.

“When you have a theory and the theory does not agree with the experiment then you have to cut out the theory. You were wrong with the theory,” Giaever said.
On his concern that the UN will continue pushing climate change ideology:

“I am worried very much about the [UN] conference in Paris in November. I really worry about that. Because the [2009 UN] conference was in Copenhagen and that almost became a disaster but nothing got decided. But now I think that the people who are alarmist are in a very strong position.

algoreThe facts are that in the last 100 years we have measured the temperatures it has gone up .8 degrees and everything in the world has gotten better. So how can they say it’s going to get worse when we have the evidence? We live longer, better health, and better everything. But if it goes up another .8 degrees we are going to die I guess.

I would say that the global warming is basically a non-problem. Just leave it alone and it will take care of itself. It is almost very hard for me to understand why almost every government in Europe — except for Polish government — is worried about global warming. It must be politics.

So far we have left the world in better shape than when we arrived, and this will continue with one exception — we have to stop wasting huge, I mean huge amounts of money on global warming. We have to do that or that may take us backwards. People think that is sustainable but it is not sustainable.”

 

 Dr. Giaver is a perfect example of what happens when a scientist approaches a scientific issue without an agenda. We need more Dr. Giaver’s and fewer Al Gore’s.
