Gordon Fulks: Climate Orthodoxy Perpetuates a Hoax

Gordon J. Fulks, PhD

While I do not normally respond to personal political attacks from the uneducated and the anonymous, this is sooo typical of those who have no understanding of science that it deserves a reply.

First of all, bad behavior is not the way science works. When I talked with my fellow astrophysicist, the great Global Warming Guru James Hansen, we found much in common. For instance, we agree that using ethanol as a motor fuel is a total waste. Hansen also supports nuclear power, as I do. And Hansen and I agree about Milankovitch cycles as a major climate driver. While we disagree about carbon dioxide, we know how to carry on a constructive conversation with fellow scientists.

Second, unlike most who promote the hysteria, I have no conflicts in this matter. It is amazing to be slandered time and again.

It is also standard nonsense to assert that there are very few skeptics, and we have no expertise. While this person seems willing to admit that there are "hundreds" of scientists who oppose climate hysteria, that should really be tens of thousands who have actually spoken out:

Note the signature of the legendary physicist, Edward Teller, PhD. Of the 31,487 American scientists who signed the petition 9,029 of us have PhDs.

In the Open Letter to President Obama that more than a hundred of us signed, many were prominent:

Yun Akusofu, Ph.D University Of Alaska
Robert M. Carter, PhD James Cook University
Roger Cohen, Ph.D Fellow, American Physical Society
David Douglas, PhD University of Rochester
Michael Fox, PhD American Nuclear Society
Gerhard Gerlich, PhD Technische Universitat Braunschweig
Ivar Giaever, PhD Nobel Laureate, Physics
Will Happer, PhD Princeton University
Kiminori Itoh, PhD Yokohama National University
Madhav Khandekar, PhD Former Editor, Climate Research
Richard Lindzen, PhD Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Horst Malberg, Ph.D Free University of Berlin
Ross McKitrick, PhD University of Guelph
Patrick J. Michaels, PhD University of Virginia
Niels-Axel Morner, PhD Stockholm University
Roy N. Spencer, PhD University of Alabama, Huntsville
Antonio Zichichi, PhD President, World Federation Scientists

The text of the letter and the full list of signers are available here:

Note how the obvious expertise shown by this group far, far exceeds that of the website Mr. Anonymous uses for his talking points. They do not have any PhDs with relevant experience.

ED NOTE- a.k.a Mr Anonymous- this site does not attempt to supplement Climate Science research, there are plenty of very good web sites addressing this need- Those who deny the science of AGW will quote many [including scientists who are part of the consensus who are also included]- this site is database of links/ statements and CVs- all of which is publicly available and often in the subjects own words. If there are correction that need to be made please post your concern and they will be updated.
