Greenhouse-Gas-Climatology Is Not Science
Writing in an op-ed article on the Wall Street Journal website, physicist Michio Kaku, a professor of theoretical physics at City College of New York, reports on the turmoil in physics created by experiments suggesting that neutrinos travel faster than the speed of light. If confirmed by other scientists’ experiments around the world, this would have wide-ranging ramifications in the physical sciences, upending key foundations of physics.
In sharp contrast to so-called climatology scientists, who falsify data, hide counter evidence, and engage in efforts to silence critics, Professor Kaku concludes:
Reputations may rise and fall. But in the end, this is a victory for science. No theory is carved in stone. Science is merciless when it comes to testing all theories over and over, at any time, in any place. Unlike religion or politics, science is ultimately decided by experiments, done repeatedly in every form. There are no sacred cows. In science, 100 authorities count for nothing. Experiment counts for everything.
The only possible conclusion is that Al-Gore-led charlatans proclaiming man-made-global warming are not engaged in scientific activity.
