Nobel laureate points out climate alarmism is arrant nonsense

Nobel laureate points out climate alarmism is arrant nonsense
Not as stranded as previously indicated.

[Ed. – Kewl.]

At the July 3 Nobel laureates conference on Mainau Island, 30 of the 65 attendees signed a media-reported letter urging action against global warming.  Not reported by the media: the attendees listened to Norway’s 1973 Nobel physics laureate, Ivar Giaever, give a truth-telling “Emperor’s New Clothes” speech.  Also, the majority of the Nobel laureates refused to sign the alarmist global-warming letter.

Giaever gave a great speech.  His explanations were clear.  His graphs were persuasive.  He took the part of the boy in the Emperor’s New Clothes folktale.  The boy saw the emperor parading around naked and cried out, “The emperor has no clothes on!”  Giaever was saying that the fraction-of-a-degree differences in temperature upon which global warming theory is based are as invisible as the Emperor’s new clothes.  He said (on this video at the 6:45 mark):

To my surprise both “alarmist” and “deniers” (I guess that I’m quoted as a “denier”) measure the average temperature for the whole earth for a whole year to a fraction of a degree, and that the result is significant. Of course it’s not!

How can you possibly measure the average temperature for the whole earth and for the whole year and come up with a fraction of a degree? So, I have this cry here. I think the average temperature of the earth is equal to the Emperor’s New Clothes. There was a boy who said, you know, who cried at might, “The Emperor has no clothes on,” and I would cry out and say, “You can’t measure the temperature for the whole earth with such accuracy!”
