Distinguished climate scientist Judith Curry [has] decided to resign from her position at Georgia Tech. [She elaborates on her reasons why.]
“The deeper reasons have to do with my growing disenchantment with universities, the academic field of climate science and scientists.
“A deciding factor was that I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science. 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.
“How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide (I have worked through these issues with a number of skeptical young scientists).”
Climate Change is not about science, it is about politics. Climate Change is merely a vehicle for the left to advance its agenda of redistribution of wealth within the context of a planned, political economy. Some of the Climate Change activists admit this outright, but it is readily apparent to those capable of thinking critically. Every “solution” advanced by the Climate Change activists involves advancing the socialist, progressive agenda. Coincidence?
The comments from Climate Scienticians attacking Curry sound just like mean middle school girls attacking someone who doesn’t belong to their clique.
Curry is as dishonest as they come. Shes an attention seeker, whoring her credentials for adulation from angry old white men.
