Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Resigns Over Global Warming

sun-earth-180From Fox News

The global warming theory left him out in the cold.

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, abruptly announced his resignation Tuesday, Sept. 13, from the premier physics society in disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”

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.

    Big oil must have paid him off!! I mean that’s the only thing driving objection the the AGW theory isn’t it? I mean if there is a concensus, that would mean that he was for it before he was against it right?

    • Lawrence September 16, 2011 at 12:00 pm #

      Big Oil is why you are alive, well and eating. We need to fix the economy. Global Warming is a theory, just like the big bang…etc. We are dumb in the grand scheme of things. This planet will be here long after we as humans are gone.

        I was being sarchastic Lawrence. I agree with you.

  2. Rob N. Hood September 16, 2011 at 2:04 pm #

    Uh… gee Lawrence, that almost makes me feel relieved. Any more amazing insights for us?

    • NEIL F. AGWD/BSD September 16, 2011 at 5:54 pm #

      Do you feel threatened by lawrence?

  3. Joe September 17, 2011 at 12:30 am #

    Mr.Hood, always demeaning. This person needs consultation. Forgot. Loves Soros and Fat Albert. Now that, Lawrence, is your correct answer.

  4. Rob N. Hood September 17, 2011 at 8:30 am #

    It’s just that he spouted platitudes and common knowledge, that’s all. The sarcasm may not have been needed, but it screamed out for it. Not threatening, of course, just extremely lame. And so Joe… rather than attack me for being honest and challenging, why not ask Neil why he is “always demeaning” instead? That would show intellectual impartiality and integrity. Do you not have it in you? (I’m not being demeaning, just challenging).

    • NEIL F. AGWD/BSD September 17, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

      I’m always demeaning? What? Get outa here! I asked you if you feel threatened by Lawrence. How is that demeaning?

  5. Joe September 17, 2011 at 10:59 pm #

    The bottom line is the word “Incontrovertible.” Global warming, climate change is not an exact science that is set in stone, pure and simple. Why the blame game on Lawrence? He simply made made a comment and “welcome to the site Lawrence!”. RNH you have a problem with a person that disagrees? If so, you have the problem. Did he hit a nerve?

  6. Rob N. Hood September 18, 2011 at 9:55 am #

    You guys sure stick together. If only Liberals could do that. But we get too busy critiqueing ourselves and trying to keep ourselves has honest and accurate as possible. If “Lawrence” had been Left, and had stated something similarly left-ishly inane you guys would not have commented very similarly to me? Really? And to ask if I was threatened by his or anyone’s inanity… is NOT demeaning? Really? You people apparently have no clue when you are demeaning. That doesn’t surprise me though. It makes perfect sense.

    • Jerk A. Knot September 19, 2011 at 10:25 am #

      Libs dont stick together…. LOL everyone of us spew the exaxt same lame TP’s and lie out your wazoo. Then you attack each and every one with differing views personally rather than factually. Then when challanged you are dumb enoulgh to say something like why don’t you aregue with some other person who has the same opinion….. why??? WHY???? WHY!!!!!???? Why, do we even try….. Your brainwashed and unable to change.

  7. Rob N. Hood September 18, 2011 at 9:58 am #

    The WORD is hypocrisy. Get the defintion, from Neil perhaps, and start reading it. Don’t stop reading it… for several days. Then read it again. Then start practising NOT being hypocritical. Then and only then can the Left and the Right start communicating better. If that’s what you really want. If not, nevermind. But I assure you the Left would greatly appreciate it.

  8. joe September 18, 2011 at 10:32 pm #

    A simple question. Why did he resign? Answer the question with an unbiased eye, or is that not possible? Awaiting a factual unbiased answer for which, based upon previous posts you will change the subject, never address the issue, nor answer the direct question other than spewing left wing liberal verbiage from thy “Leader.” Correct? Prove us wrong if you think for yourself for which I highly doubt. We are all impatiently awaiting. Can hardly wait but I know the negative response forthcoming.

  9. Rob N. Hood September 19, 2011 at 9:48 am #

    Gee, uh, ok…. I have no idea why he resigned…. and you do? How is that going to lead to any kind of substantial discussion? And so where do you get your “conservative verbiage”? Who is your “leader”? If you think I have one, then I will simply assume the same about you. (Helpful hint: this is not a negative response… it is a logical and honest one, “off the cuff” and… leaderless…!!!)

  10. Rob N. Hood September 19, 2011 at 5:29 pm #

    A simple question…

    • Jerk A. Knot September 20, 2011 at 1:56 pm #

      Weak as usual…

  11. Rob N. Hood September 20, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    Actually your “weak” response is very weak. And I was asking Joe not you.

  12. Joe September 20, 2011 at 10:25 pm #

    Mr. Hood, you stated, “I have no idea why he resigned.” Your statement, not mine or others. It is apparent that we are dealing with an individual that has an agenda, (you) with no individual thoughts that you can say in your own verbiage absent checking with proper authorities above you. Correct Mr. Hood? By the way, I’m Joe and I responded and I’m not Mr. Knot, nor Neil.

  13. Rob N. Hood September 21, 2011 at 8:18 am #

    Sorry, got the wrong name. You all look alike to me. And so sorry (not really) for an honest response which you oddly cannot accept. Without any solid info neither I, nor you, can make an intelligent judgement on the matter you are so concerned about. Sometimes the most intelligent response is “I don’t know.” And in this case, neither do you. But I know, it’s fun to make guesses. But that’s all it is at this point.

  14. Rob N. Hood September 21, 2011 at 8:23 am #

    Anyway, I was responding to Jerk’s demeaning comment, which I beieve I had a right to do. And you finally responded to my question, so great… Why is your nose out-of-joint? That’s the way this is supposed to work. So testy.

  15. Joe September 21, 2011 at 7:55 pm #

    A simple answer would suffice.

  16. Rob N. Hood September 22, 2011 at 2:46 pm #

    I gave it, very simply, up above. So I have no idea what you’re about… and at this point do not care.

  17. Rob N. Hood September 22, 2011 at 2:49 pm #

    BTW- you didn’t supply a simple (or complicated) answer re: your out-of-joint nose. But that’s ok, I don’t really care any more.

  18. Joe September 22, 2011 at 10:28 pm #

    Why should you “care any more” when you still have not answered the question asked as to why he resigned? (Did you even read what this subject is about?) You don’t care any longer when a direct question is asked for which you cannot nor will not answer, correct? It is not “Complicated.” Your words, not mine or others. Typical Troll.

  19. Rob N. Hood September 23, 2011 at 9:26 am #

    Smile when you call me troll. Kidding. Now that I had to educate you on the correct derogatory term to use for me here, you are going to start using it eh? Too bad I have failed to teach you other more important things as well. So it goes. And once again, ad nauseum, I did answer your question. So here it is again for your reading pleasure: I DON’T KNOW WHY HE RESIGNED, EXACTLY, AND NEITHER DO YOU. That “factoid” may come out, it may not, eventually. It is easy to speculate about these things, and in the meantime people will. Speculation is neither helpful nor relevent in these matters.

    I used to work as a marine meteorologist where 9/10 of the meteorologists there thought that Global Warming was a bunch of shananigans…at least with the concept of us being directly responsible for the warming trend over the past 100yrs. We never started to collect world wide data until 60 years ago or so. Yea we have ice cores and all that, but that only gives an inkling to the whole process. I prefer to say we’re in a state of climate change. Think about how weather and climate is generated. It originates from the sun. For us to get a better understanding of everything, we need to recognize patterns from the sun with the weather…like sunspot cycles and things of that nature. I give Dr. Ivar Giaever props for doing what he did.

    Kudo’s to Dr. Giaever. He’s not politically correct. In other words, he may be correct.
