Some sanity at last!
With most scientific institutions throughout the world in the hands of activists supporting global warming catastrophism I am delighted to see that the august American Physical Society may be putting science before politics and revising the Society's stand on global warming. The APS represents physicists and others in the physical sciences in the US and is one of the premier scientific bodies in the world.
Following public resignations by renowned phycisist and Nobel Laureate Hal Lewis and others over the issue a sub-committee was set up to revise the APS Climate Change statement with physicist Dr. Steven Koonin as chair.
The good doctor has written an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal which will terrify warmists as it is an intelligent review of climate change by a senior scientific figure not supporting the "consensus".
We often hear that there is a "scientific consensus" about climate change. But as far as the computer models go, there isn't a useful consensus at the level of detail relevant to assessing human influences.
It will be very interesting to see the final position statement of the APS.
