Quote of the Day: Ivar Giaever

Quote of the Day

From an email exchange following the Nobel prize-winning physicist’s resignation from the American Physical Society because of its blind embracing of the global warming faith:

“In the APS it is ok to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?” 

Read it here.


  1. How can anyone seriously use the word ‘incontrovertible’ as a scientific term, as in, “the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible”, by the American Physical Society.

    Incontrovertible is a non-scientific term. The very nature of science means that nothing is incontrovertible. Everything should be challenged. To say otherwise is blind acceptance that everything we know is a fact and we would never sail to the end of the Earth for fear of falling off the edge!

  2. bevan pidgeon says:

    carefull there baldrick ,with falling of the edge of the earth don`t you know it was once concensus that the world was flat?

    • So true Bevan and luckily today we still have some scientists, like Ivar Giaever who say no to the incontrovertible.

      Just like a fellow scientist said many years ago against the consensus, ‘Hang on a minute, this theory of Phlogiston is bollocks’ and proved it so. Unless of course they worked for the American Physical Society where everything relating to global warming is settled.
