John Clauser, one of three recipients of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics, does not mince words. He has just joined the CO2 Coalition, a group critical of global warming extremism. In its announcement he was quoted as saying:
“The popular narrative about climate change reflects a dangerous corruption of science that threatens the world’s economy and the well-being of billions of people. Misguided climate science has metastasized into massive shock-journalistic pseudoscience. In turn, the pseudoscience has become a scapegoat for a wide variety of other unrelated ills.
“It has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies, and environmentalists. In my opinion, there is no real climate crisis. There is, however, a very real problem with providing a decent standard of living to the world’s large population and an associated energy crisis. The latter is being unnecessarily exacerbated by what, in my opinion, is incorrect climate science.”
H-T Steve Moore, who noted: “How this brilliant truth-teller ever received a Nobel Prize is beyond us.”
