Last month at a science conference in Korea, Dr. John F. Clauser, joint recipient of last year’s Nobel Prize in Physics, told his fellow scientists:
“I don’t think there is a real climate crisis. I think the key processes are exaggerated and misunderstood by a factor of about 200.”
And he is willing to name names. He recently even criticized the awarding of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics to Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann for their work on “the physical modelling of Earth’s climate…reliably predicting global warming.” Clauser says the most common climate models are unreliable and don’t account for the dramatic temperature-stabilizing feedback of clouds, which he says is more than fifty times as powerful as the warming effect of CO2.
In May, Dr. Clauser joined the CO2 Coalition, a watchdog on climate science, and issued a statement saying: “Misguided climate science has metastasized into massive shock-journalistic pseudoscience.“ He added that climate change alarmism “has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies, and environmentalists.”
In other words, he’s warning about the multi-trillion dollar climate change industrial complex that we’ve been railing against for years.
How this brilliant truth-teller ever received a Nobel Prize is beyond us. Don’t be surprised if the academy doesn’t ask him to give it back.
