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.
Ive been vilified by some of my colleagues who are activists and dont 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.
Personally, I think the Government Science Gravy Train is their religion.
Certainly not for Professor Curry. She has been consistently honest and astute throughout her career.
Well, maybe she decided to bail before she bled to death from the knife wounds. Kinda got bullied out?
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.
There shouldn't be federally backed loans for anything.
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.
Peer review = peer pressure.
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.

Of all the top ten great comments on FR yours is right up there. You didn’t miss a word.
i didn’t see the show- did she give reasons why she doesn’t believe man is causing GW now? Any facts to prove man isn’t?
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.
CRAZINESS in climate field leads dissenter Dr. Judith Curry to resign
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”
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.
