These are some of the scientists who actively oppose climate alarmism (or opposed it through the last days of their lives):
Dr. Ivar Giaever, Nobel Laureate in physics:
Dr. Robert Laughlin, Nobel Laureate in physics.
Dr. Frederick Seitz, former president of the National Academy of Sciences, physicist.
Dr. Richard Lindzen, member of the National Academy of Sciences, professor emeritus of MIT; an atmospheric physicist.
Dr. Fred Singer, chief scientist of the U.S. Department of Transportation (1987– 89), vice chairman of the National Advisory Committee for Oceans and Atmosphere (1981–86), founding dean of the School of Environmental and Planetary Sciences in the University of Miami (1964–67), the first director of the National Weather Satellite Service (1962–64); an atmospheric and space physicist.
Dr. William Happer, former director of energy research at the U.S. Department of Energy, professor emeritus of physics of the Princeton University.
Dr. Roy Spencer, U.S. Science Team leader for the AMSR on NASA’s Aqua satellite, a meteorologist.
Dr. John Christy, distinguished professor of Atmospheric Science and director of the Earth System Science Center at UAH, an atmospheric scientist.
Roy Spencer and John Christy are co-recipients of NASA’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for global temperature monitoring work with satellites.
Dr. Willie Soon, an astrophysicist.
Dr. Freeman Dyson, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, London Mathematical Society, NASA Advisory Council (2001-2003); former chairman of Federation of American Scientists (1962-1963); a winner of the Danny Heineman Prize (American Physical Society), Lorentz Medal (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences), Hughes Medal (The Royal Society), Max Planck Medal (German Physical Society), Oppenheimer Memorial Prize, Harvey Prize, Wolf Prize in Physics, Andrew Gemant Award (American Institute of Physics), Enrico Fermi Award (U.S. Department of Energy); professor emeritus of physics, Princeton University.

The main point of the essay Renounce Climate Alarmism! published in WUWT is that the Trump Administration should renounce climate alarmism entirely, rather than fighting each regulation, executive order, and other visible consequences of it.
The National Association of Scholars has published my new article, Academia is in the New Dark Age.
It continues polemics, started by an earlier article Academia on the Verge of a New Dark Age.
And it cites articles, published by Naomi Oreskes in 1994-2001, that eviscerated “climate models”, their use by IPCC, and warned about the pressure put on the scientists to endorse those models – just before she yielded to that pressure herself.
Just got back from the Crossroads: Energy & Climate Policy Summit , a climate realism conference in Washington, DC, hosted by the Heritage Foundation and co-sponsored by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
I was impressed by the number of diplomats from the European countries and the EU! A delegate from the Embassy of France, sitting next to me, was taking notes continuously. The world did take notice that the President-elect would not be bullied by the enviros and the UN.
That gives a hope that the Europe will shake off the yoke of climate alarmism.
Today, the 14th of November, would be the 108th birthday of Joseph McCarthy – a great man, who sacrificed everything he had in a fight against foreign enemies and their domestic agents. His image and deeds have been maligned to such an extent that even conservatives use the word McCarthyism as a term of abuse.
Many readers might have been taught lies about McCarthy in school. Here are the facts. Continue reading Joseph McCarthy
Up until election day, almost all polls and analytical forecasts predicted that Hillary, a candidate from the incumbent Democratic Party, would win. Instead, Trump won by a large margin. Republicans won both House and Senate.
This pattern is frequently observed when a ruling party persecutes opposition. Fearing repression, supporters of the opposition disproportionately avoid polling or claim to support the ruling party. They express their opinion only on election day.
Some of the wealthiest Americans, those who benefit most from the freedoms and opportunities provided by this country, also side with its worst enemies. They use their wealth to take away our rights and freedoms, violate the Constitution, and try to subject America to foreign rule. Many others are sitting on the fence. Continue reading Cheers to Charles and David Koch
Today I visited the Energy & Climate Policy Summit at the Texas Public Policy Foundation in Austin, TX. The speakers were some of the best minds in the field, including physicists William Happer and Richard Lindzen, a famous environmentalist (and bona fide PhD) Patrick Moore, and historian Rupert Darwall.
