Prize-Winning Physicist Resigns in Disgust Over Global Warming

“I resign from APS,” wrote Dr. Ivar Giaever, 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics.

Dr. Ivar Giaever, a former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, abruptly announced his resignation on Tuesday from the American Physical Society in disgust over its officially stated policy that “global warming is occurring.”

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 explained in his email to APS: “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?”

“The claim … is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degree Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me is that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this ‘warming’ period,” his email message said.

Giaever was one of President Obama’s key scientific supporters in 2008. Giaever joined over 70 Nobel Science Laureates in endorse Obama in an October 29, 2008 open letter.

He was featured prominently in the 2009 U.S. Senate Report of (then) Over 700 Dissenting International Scientists from Man-made global warming.

Giaever was also one of more than 100 co-signers in a March 30, 2009 letter to President Obama that was critical of his stance on global warming. See: More than 100 scientists rebuke Obama as ‘simply incorrect’ on global warming: ‘We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated’

In addition to Giaever, other prominent scientists have resigned from APS over its stance on man-made global warming. See: Prominent Physicist Hal Lewis Resigns from APS: ‘Climategate was a fraud on a scale I have never seen…Effect on APS position: None. None at all. This is not science’

  1. Robert, I wish things like this would get more press. In addition to this you may want to post a story on your front page about the Global Warming Petition project. I think you did this a while back when the number of scientists who had signed the petition was around 10,000. The number is now over 30,000!
    By the way, my name is one of the ones listed as I am a science teacher with a Master’s Degree in Life Science, and so I understand that a compound that is essential to life IS NOT POLLUTION!

  2. It’s so nice to see so many emminent scientists regaining their self-respect and getting back to serious science. I applaud the good Dr for recognizing the global warmists for the fraudsters they are.
