Nobel Prize-winning scientist declares global warming ‘fake news’: ‘I agree with Pres. Trump, absolutely’
Excerpt: Dr. Ivar Giaever won the 1973 Noble Prize in Physics while at GE and went on to teach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and to launch his own company, Applied BioPhysics. …
Giaever has drawn some criticism in the scientific community over the past decade because of his feelings about global warming. While he was a supporter of President Obama and considers himself a Democrat — even though he prefers not to be pigeonholed into any category — he doesn’t believe there’s much to global warming. “I agree with [President] Trump, absolutely,” he said. “It’s fake news. You read the paper every week or two, and there’s a story about the ocean rising, the temperature is rising, but it’s always 30 years from now and not now. There’s never anything now.” (Full article here: The Daily Gazette – By Bill Buell – August 13, 2017)
Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever: ‘Global warming is a non-problem’
‘I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.’
‘Global warming really has become a new religion.’
“I am worried very much about the [UN] conference in Paris in November…I think that the people who are alarmist are in a very strong position.’
‘We have to stop wasting huge, I mean huge amounts of money on global warming.’

2012: Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Ivar Giaever: ‘Is climate change pseudoscience?…the answer is: absolutely’ — Derides global warming as a ‘religion’ – ‘He derided the Nobel committees for awarding Al Gore and R.K. Pachauri a peace prize, and called agreement with the evidence of climate change a ‘religion’… the measurement of the global average temperature rise of 0.8 degrees over 150 years remarkably unlikely to be accurate, because of the difficulties with precision for such measurements—and small enough not to matter in any case: “What does it mean that the temperature has gone up 0.8 degrees? Probably nothing.”
Physics Prof. reverses his climate views – becomes skeptic: ‘I accepted the premise…But one day about 7 years ago, I noticed something odd’ – Mike van Biezen is adjunct professor at Compton College, Santa Monica College, El Camino College, and Loyola Marymount University teaching Physics, Mathematics, Astronomy, and Earth Science.
