Nobel prize-winning physicist quits society over global warming scam

(NaturalNews) Challenging the groupthink tendencies of mainstream society on any number of popular issues is sure to bring about plenty of mockery and ridicule, especially if you challenge the mainstream dogma of man-made global warming. But none of this phased Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics, who recently resigned his membership from the American Physical Society (APS) over its errant position on global warming.

An esteemed physicist who, besides winning his Nobel Prize, also received an Oliver E. Buckley Prize in 1965 and a Zworkin Award in 1974. Dr. Giaever is well-learned in solid state physics and biophysics, and is very well-respected in his field. However, all of his extensive knowledge has led him to the undeniable, and politically inconvenient, conclusion that man-made global warming is nothing more than pseudoscientific nonsense.

According to a recent FOX News report, the official position of APS is that man-made global warming is real and occurring right now, and that its existence is incontrovertible, a position that Dr. Giaever finds appalling. In an email to Kate Kirby, executive officer of the physics society, Dr. Giaever questions the duplicity of the organization in its approach to global warming versus all other areas involving physics.

"In the APS is it 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 writes. "The claim is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree (sic) Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me (sic) that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this warming period."

The use of the word "incontrovertible" in describing any scientific assessment is faulty, says Dr. Giaever. Science, in general, is all about questioning what is assumed about the world and the things that are in it. To suggest that man-made global warming -- which many other scientists and physicists besides Dr. Giaever also contend is a questionable theory, at best -- is undeniable fact proves that APS is either blatantly complying with an unscientific political agenda, or the group has altogether abandoned any semblance of legitimate scientific inquiry and assessment.
