Thread: ‘CRAZINESS’ in climate field leads dissenter Dr. Judith Curry to resign

  1. Default ‘CRAZINESS’ in climate field leads dissenter Dr. Judith Curry to resign

    This is a sad development for academia. A leading contrary opinion in honest opposition to the political hegemony of AGW has resigned her position because of political climate in her field.

    Here's the telling quote from her resignation letter:

    A deciding factor was that I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science. Research and other professional activities are professionally rewarded only if they are channeled in certain directions approved by a politicized academic establishment — funding, ease of getting your papers published, getting hired in prestigious positions, appointments to prestigious committees and boards, professional recognition, etc.

    How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide (I have worked through these issues with a number of skeptical young scientists).
    I've been a big fan of Curry for quite some time. She's got a dozen interview podcasts easily found and the take away from most of them is one word: UNCERTAINTY.

    Never forget: Science + Politics = Politics
    Can't be otherwise and AGW is the most politicized area of science I know.

    Thats a big confirmation there of what many of us have been saying all along.

    How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide

    Follow the narrative with AGW, or lose a career.


    Suuuure, the science is settled. Big fraud.
    Leave it to the left, to think so little of Women...that they think all it takes to be one is a feeling and a change of clothes.

    There are not many anti-Relativity people left either.

    Unlike relativity, AGW cannot offer any similar tidy hypothesis test.

    Also, the political tide in favor of Einstein's work doesn't come to mind.

    Other than that ... NAILED IT!

    Are you familiar with Gad Saad? Give him a view on YouTube if not. He doesn't cover AGW, but just about every other topic concerning academia and forbidden thoughts/knowledge.

    Ah, you mentioned podcasts, I assumed you watched on YouTube. Gad Saad is a professor of Evolutionary Psychology, who addresses the nuttines happening all across Western universities. Perhaps you can find him on whatever form of media you prefer.
