It’s not often we get to write about members of Ivy League Academia who support conservatives on any issues, let alone multiple issues. Today we get that chance! Dr. Mike Stopa is a Harvard physicist who is running to fill the recently vacated Congressional seat that had been filled by the now-Senator Ed Markey (D-MA). Dr. Stopa describes himself as a conservative Republican, and he has vigorously attacked the climate change “hysteria” that we’ve been caught up in for the last two decades.
“Thomas Kuhn described changes in scientific paradigms that are sudden and surprising with the term ‘scientific revolutions.’ We may be witnessing such a scientific revolution in the theory of global warming right now. But alas, there are reactionary forces outside of the scientific community that are fighting vigorously to hold the line and keep up public concern if not outright panic.”
Dr. Stopa is a nationally recognized expert on nanoscale electronics and computation, and is the Director of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network Computation Project. He is also the second major Ivy League academic to attack the Global Warming hysteria being perpetrated by the United Nations in (what is likely) an effort to give the UN more control over the international affairs of sovereign nations.
Just last week Dr. Richard Lindzen attacked the same UN IPCC report that Dr. Stopa belittles.
“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot. “They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase… [I]n attributing warming to man, they fail to point out that the warming has been small, and totally consistent with there being nothing to be alarmed about,” Lindzen said. “It is quite amazing to see the contortions the IPCC has to go through in order to keep the international climate agenda going.”
Dr. Stopa is a candidate we can get behind. A lifelong conservative Republican, he has the intellect and ability to be an excellent representative to Congress. Hopefully the people of Massachusetts see it that way too.
