Princeton, MIT Professors Debunk ‘Climate Change’ Alarmism

The report focused on the monetary gain researchers frequently enjoy.

  • Distinguished emeritus professors from some of the nation’s premier universities are pointing out corruption in the science of global warming.
  • William Happer, Professor of Physics, Emeritus of Princeton, and Richard Lindzen, Professor of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences, Emeritus of MIT, both spoke freely about science.
  • The professors expressed concern about a steady flow of billions of dollars going to scientists doing research supporting an alarmist hypothesis about global warming which in turn keeps funding moving toward related projects.
  • The pair recently filed a 28-page statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that proposed a rule: “The Enhancement and Standardization of Climate-Related Disclosures for Investors.”
  • The statement outlined reasons why alarm about a warming planet is not justified, nullifying the need for excessive funding for research into the topic.
  • A summary of the report stated that according to the two emeritus professors, work by many climate change scientists is “pal review, not peer review.”
  • The summary went on to talk about the authors’ credentials, saying, “The two men have had long distinguished careers in physics and atmospheric science.”
  • The report states that “Climate science is awash with manipulated data, which provides no reliable scientific evidence.”
  • According to the summary, there is no reliable scientific evidence to date provided by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is government-controlled and only issues government-dictated findings.
  • “The two academics draw attention to an IPCC rule that states all summaries for policymakers are approved by governments. In their opinion, these summaries are ‘merely government opinions,'” the review of the report stated.
  • Also cited in the report is the work of John Christy, a professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama, who stated that, in his opinion, recent climate model projections “fail miserably to predict reality,” making them “inappropriate” to use in predicting future climate changes.
  • According to the United Nations (UN), “Climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns. These shifts may be natural, such as through variations in the solar cycle,” going on to say that “since the 1800s, human activities have been the main driver of climate change.”
  • NASA made a similar assessment, stating that “Most scientists say that humans can change climate too. People drive cars. People heat and cool their houses. People cook food. All those things take energy.”
