‘Knives Sticking Out Of My Back’: Global Warming Skeptic Tells Tucker Carlson Why She Left Academia
dailycaller.com ^ | 1/7/2017 | Michael Bastasch

Posted on 01/08/2017 7:25:34 AM PST by rktman

Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry told Fox News host Tucker Carlson she was so sick of politicization of global warming in academia she resigned from her tenured position at Georgia Tech.

“I’ve been vilified by some of my colleagues who are activists and don’t like anybody challenging their big story,” Curry told Carlson Friday night.

“I walk around with knives sticking out of my back,” she said. “In the university environment I felt like I was just beating my head against the wall.”

Scientism is a religion. They burn heretics at the stake.

I have remained passive as long as the progressives only waged war on marshmallow areas which are largely words surrounded by nothingness.

However, they are infecting my area (physics/engineering) and this is now war.

Try to even find a “climate scientist” prior to Algore. Its all about money - grant money, aka “free momey” for academics. Nothing but greed and opportunism, fueled by the liberal hate America crowd.

Wow, an awakening.

Certainly not for Professor Curry. She has been consistently honest and astute throughout her career.

There shouldn’t be federally backed loans for fake majors and if the university truly feels such measures are valuable then they should share in the Financial Risk if the candidate proves unable to find a job.

universities talk like those majors are valuable so let them act that way.

Right now the taxpayers are financing hatred of America. well you’re free to hate America but it should only be part of the taxpayers who pay for that BS.

which are largely words surrounded by nothingness.

Hussein Obama did NOT have to invent any destructive issues. To hurt America, he only had to embrace the Demonrat's issues. One of them is the scam global warming turned into man made climate change.

It's what Muslims do. They infiltrate and destroy from within.

Hussein Obama, America's FIRST Muslim President, was destroying a significant part of the US electrical power generation with this scam. Trump will neuter the EPA.

LOL! I used to have this bookmarked at work and when one of our co-workers would make an attempt to stab us, crank it up full volume. Yeah, we were in irreverent bunch and would not have survived at corporate for more than 30 seconds. The joys of working at a remote site. ;-) The saving grace was that we were really really good at what we did.

There may be some answers to your question in the video if you can view it. She is more skeptical of the amount of contribution. ⛈🚂⛽️

I was thinking of exactly that when I saw the headline! I even looked up the lyrics on-line, but I thought the critical line was a little too far from what Dr. Curry was quoted as saying.

Thanks for putting it up.

See this thread, and go to the source at Climate Depot for the many links there, as well as Curry’s own blog page, which is also linked. She is the real deal. She needs to be in a high level science policy position in the Trump Administration.

Welcome to the fight club. Have been fighting these clowns since the ozone hole scare. That hole will be opening up bigger than ever in a few years.

Nothing new here: “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,” she wrote. “How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide.”

A friend who taught report writing to scientists at CDC reported the same thing back in the 1980s. Back then, in order to get funding, whatever work you did for the CDC has to be related to AIDS breaking out into the general population.

I go to yahoo when I have a couple minutes to click on lots of links to get to an original article. This one was “shared” today, and I am wondering why now?

“Nobel Prize-Winning Scientist Who Endorsed Obama Now Says Prez. is ‘Ridiculous’ & ‘Dead Wrong’ on ‘Global Warming’”

http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/07/06/nobel-prize-winning-scientist-who-endorsed-obama-now-says-prez-is-ridiculous-dead-wrong-on-global-warming/

Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever: ‘Global warming is a non-problem’
‘I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.’
‘Global warming really has become a new religion.’
“I am worried very much about the [UN] conference in Paris in November...I think that the people who are alarmist are in a very strong position.’
‘We have to stop wasting huge, I mean huge amounts of money on global warming.’

July 6, 2015 by Marc Marano. There’s over 1k replies so going to skim read. Also, the Dr. resigned from the American Physical Society in Sept 2011 because of the warming promotion.
