Judith Curry who came up with the Antarctic global temp connection decades ago is retiring her professorship, she says she no longer knows what to say to students about the craziness of climate science . She questions climate models used, and the Obama admins solution to global warming. She doesn't think it will do much, and feels Trump will put the global warming policies to a saner and surer level.

Judith Curry is a critic of human caused global warming. She is retiring from her professorship and going to focus on her private business in providing climate and weather risks for businesses.

strangesounds.org...
Judith Curry, one of climate science’s most vocal critics, is leaving academe because of what she calls the poisonous nature of the scientific discussion around human-caused global warming.

Curry, 63, is retiring from her tenured position as a professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. She’s instead going to focus on growing her private business, Climate Forecast Applications Network, which provides insights into climate and weather risks for agriculture and energy companies.


She mocks climate alarmists who say the ski is falling. She is of the opinion that man may have an impact on global warming it is very small, she also questions the climate models used as proof of global warming.


There she occasionally mocks what she calls “climate alarmists” who say time is almost out unless humanity weans itself off fossil fuels. In her blog and on Twitter, she has also criticized some of the scientists, including Pennsylvania State University climatologist Michael Mann and Harvard University climate historian Naomi Oreskes, who have become leading voices for climate action. She has testified in front of Congress, boosted by politicians who use her work to argue that environmental regulations and a scaling down of fossil fuel use will be ineffective. Her work is frequently invoked by climate skeptics and denialists. Congressional Democrats, displeased with her conclusions, have investigated the source of her funding.

Curry actually believes, along with the vast majority of climate scientists, that humans are warming the planet, and was even an outspoken advocate of the issue during the George W. Bush years. She was among the first to connect global warming to hurricanes, for example, publishing an influential study in Science in 2006. But where she breaks with the majority opinion is over just how much humans are actually causing global temperatures to rise.

One would think the laundry list of failed predictions would have discredited the models by now, but no since our media is in the business of propaganda.

Flagg, Dad........I agree with climate change.....but the Earth cleanses itself of carbon dioxide......it's a God ordained system for mankind.....has to last a little longer I think......

The Earth is wearing out like a garment....God says so in Scripture....

Mankind isn't at fault exactly,huh

I'm waiting for the "experts" to show up and discredit her. It usually starts with that and then devolves into being told how ignorant you are for not doing something. (although nobody actually says what you should be doing)

Big business loves additional regulations. They are so big that a little inconvenience of a new regulation, that they lobbied for, is inconsequential but will put smaller businesses onto bankruptcy.

Giving all your money to the UN and Al Gore of course. That will save the earth and mankind

Agreed, first the false climate numbers get whipped out for all to be shocked at. When that doesn't work, then you are a denier.
If that doesn't work then the failing weaponized media tries to get off the couch they are asleep on and starts calling names.

Well, it costs a lot of money to light up Al Gores house and fuel his jet.

Let me just emphasize this here, before people who actually disagree with her start using her as evidence.

Additionally, there is already a thread.

Must have missed this little paragraph?


Where many scientists say that humans are the primary cause of warming, Curry believes natural forces play a larger role. She also believes that uncertainty around climate models means we don’t have to act so quickly and that current plans would do little to mitigate warming. She also questions the assertion made by a majority of climate scientists who believe humans have significantly contributed to climate change. In the Obama years, she has become a contrarian of sorts, often criticizing those who rely on climate models to prove that humans are warming the planet at an unprecedented rate.

Al Gore has indeed done well financially after leaving the WH. If he is the person to look to on how to reduce energy usage, we are in fact doomed.

But we have to remember, he is so important that we can ignore HIS "carbon footprint". We have to do as he says not as he does. Of course 95% of people could afford to do what he does.

Just do as your told, when TPTB change their mind the media will tell you.

All of the predictions have come true except for more hurricanes. The seasons have changed in some places by as many as 3 weeks, not to mention droughts all over the place while we've had record flooding in others.

Our world climate is in disarray mainly because of people cutting down all the trees, putting concrete everywhere and, of course, putting chemicals into the atmosphere.

So, what, you think she's lying when she said she believes humans are causing warming?

She is a 'lukewarmist' like Dr. Roy Spencer, who agree that CO2 causes warming, but disagree on how much.

Maybe you missed that in your rush to somehow counter her own beliefs with a reading comprehension-deficient understanding of those beliefs. Just as you missed that there is already a thread in this same forum about this topic.

No, she is logical. She feels global warming is a natural process. Does man have a role, yes but a very small one.

Carpet wears, mainly because of walking on it (natural process). Vacuuming it (man's role) also wears it, should we stop vacuuming it?

I wouldn't exactly say she's retiring...she's "retiring" from Georgia Tech to keep her pension, and is moving to CFAN where, as she says, she'll "have skin in the game".

She is not going quietly into the dark night, as much as some would like to believe.

What the # does carpet have to do with CO2?

There is no analogy there. Your imagined one is completely irrelevant, and you have failed logical argument.

Maybe this will help:

This is why all sane scientists, including Judith Curry, believe CO2 causes warming - you can literally see it.

How much larger does Judith Curry think natural-induced warming is than human-induced warming?
Is it just simple (51% vs 49%)?

Hmmm, and this means exactly what? No one that I've heard or read says that CO2 does not cause warming. The question is how much warming? And of that warming, how much is man-made? That is the question that's in debate.

The problem is that as concentrations of CO2 increase above a certain point it's warming contribution is progressively less making the IPCC's dire predictions based on a linear trend somewhat problematic.

She is 65, if she wants to use the pension she has earned, is that bad?

Wow, a graph. That solved everything.

If you can't see that Judith's opinion is that mans effect on the environment is small, I lead you to water, drink if you want.

What if I think humans are responsible for .01% of the warming? If that is all it was she would be right on her stance.
