Another "Denier" Of Anthro-Global Warming - Nobel Prize Winner

I haven't checked whether any of the fake news media is reporting on this, but since Jerry Brown and the California State Legislature is so intent on destroying the California Economy over this, I thought I had better post it.
Dr. Ivar Giaever, former professor with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the 1973 winner of the Nobel Prize in physics, resigned yesterday as a Fellow from the American Physics Society over its ‘incontrovertible’ position on global warming. From The Blaze - by Glenn Beck 
 And don't forget this, the 100+ Scientists who say AGW is CRUD:
We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated. Surface temperature changes over the past century have been episodic and modest and there has been no net global warming for over a decade now.1,2 After controlling for population growth and property values, there has been no increase in damages from severe weather-related events.3 The computer models forecasting rapid temperature change abjectly fail to explain recent climate behavior.4 Mr. President, your characterization of the scientific facts regarding climate change and the degree of certainty informing the scientific debate is simply incorrect. 
Remember Agenda 21 which is currently being implemented by a local government near you, and remember how the originators of the Global Warming Hoax, discussed how the topic of Global Warming could be used to  "achieve social goals" such as worldwide socialism.

If you want to pretend the HOAX is not a HOAX, why don't you just write a check to Goldman Sachs or AL GORE, because they may not have enough of your money already.

PS - OOPS IT LOOKS LIKE THE LOS ANGELES TIMES FORGOT TO REPORT THIS...

REMEMBER HOW YOU THOUGHT AB32 WAS A CLEAN AIR ACT? IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DAMAGE THE ENVIRONMENT JUST BY ITS IMPLEMENTATION:


Follow-Up:
September 20th, 2011 I contacted the American Physical Society (APS) with a list of questions: Here are my questions and the responses from APS:


1. RH - Do you have a comprehensive list of your members who have resigned from APS in protest over your global warming statement?

(APS) Twenty-two members have resigned out of more than 48,000 current members.

2. RH - Does APS or any leading members stand to gain financially from policies resulting from the general belief in AGW? Specifically any sort of cap and trade scheme...

(APS) No.

3. RH - Has APS received funds from George Soros?

(APS) George Soros provided funding to APS years ago to support science in the former Soviet Union, but the Society no longer receives financial support from him.

4.  RH - What is your position regarding the UN's Agenda 21?

(APS) APS does not have one.

5.  RH - Who exactly in your organisation did the research behind your conclusion that AGW is incontrovertible?

(APS) The APS Panel on Public Affairs consulted with scientific experts, members of the APS Council and the APS membership at large regarding the APS statement. But the statement does NOT say that AGW is incontrovertible, as you allege. It says, "The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring." The graph of global temperature vs. time for the last 30 years shows just that. The statement also contains the following language: "Emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities are changing the atmosphere in ways that affect the Earth's climate." That statement is based on basic principles of molecular physics and thermodynamics. Finally, the statement acknowledges uncertainties in the science: "Because the complexity of the climate makes accurate prediction difficult, the APS urges an enhanced effort to understand the effects of human activity on the Earth’s climate..."
Please be careful not to read more into the statement than it actually contains.

6.  RH - Do you still consider the debate to be "over" regarding AGW?

(APS) Scientific experts have concluded that global warming is occurring, but the science is not settled concerning the level of human activity contributing to global warming.

7.  RH - Can you name another area in Physics where APS has declared debate to be "over" and any research to the contrary is to be disregarded?

(APS) APS specifically stated that more climate research is needed, as noted above. Physicists never state that science is "over." But there are many cases where physicists believe they have definitive answers within specified constraints and experimental uncertainties. Examples abound, among them: 
1) Newton’s Law of Motion for Non-Relativistic Mechanics
2) Maxwell’s Laws for Electromagnetism in the Macroscopic World
3) Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Electrodynamics in the Microscopic World
