Scientists Write Open Letter in WSJ Against Global Warming Believers

16 scientists, among them famed aerospace engineer and designer Burt Rutan, have written an open letter in the Wall Street Journal saying that the dangers of global warming are exaggerated.

 

The letter starts off with them saying that a candidate for public office should be wary of promising to do something to reduce global warming. The letter also points out the fact that President Obama’s supporter and Nobel Prize winning physicist Ivar Giaever, has publicly resigned from the American Physical Society because the society’s policy statement says that global warming is an indisputable fact.

 

The letter goes on to point out a couple of scientific facts to strengthen its case and says that the reason so few speak up against the case for global warming is because for young scientists to deny global warming it means not getting promotions and grants. The letter basically calls the entire concept of global warming a money making scam by universities and research institutes and a power grab by big government and well-connected elites.

    Such “open letters” have been tried before. But the establishment (educational, scientific, political and media) is what ends up being in control of public perception, and temporary furor over a published open letter highlighting the “dirty little controversy” is soon forgotten.

    The only way this controversy won’t be buried by the established manipulators of public perception is if someone (or organization) carries the torch and keeps this issue fresh before the public eye. This will of course earn them villification by the powers that be and will bring with it other significant costs (grants, recognition, etc.)

    Finally! Someone stated it accurately and succintly. Now,… can we append “Bigfoot sightings are bogus” and put all this non-sense to rest?

  • Really?

    What the H* LL does Burt Rutan know about climate science? Who are the “scientists” and what models do they have and use to make their predictions?
    Where are their papers?

    Once upon a time everyone that was set in their ways believe the earth to be flat and when they were told it wasn’t things got nasty.

    Politicians are relatively evenly divided on the global warming issue; scientists are overwhelmingly believers.

    Never trust any one scientist. Usually trust a large majority of scientists who agree on a technical matter.
