Climate Revolt - Outpouring of Scientists Reject
Man-Made Climate Fears
By Marc Morano
Scientists seek to remove climate fear
promoting editor and 'trade him
to New York Times or Washington Post'
"The editorial claimed the "consensus" view was growing "increasingly difficult to challenge, despite the efforts of diehard climate-change deniers.” The editor now admits he is "startled" by the negative reaction from the group's scientific members. The American Chemical Society bills itself as the "world's largest scientific society."
"Virtually all of the letters published on July 27 in castigated Baum's climate science views. Scientists rebuked Baum's use of the word “deniers” because of the terms “association with Holocaust deniers.” In addition, the scientists called Baum's editorial: “disgusting”; “a disgrace”; “filled with misinformation”; “unworthy of a scientific periodical” and “pap.”
“I think it's time to find a new editor,” ACS member Thomas E. D'Ambra wrote.
"Geochemist R. Everett Langford: “I am appalled at the condescending attitude…”
"ACS scientist Dennis Malpass: “Your editorial was a disgrace... Shameful!”
"ACS member scientist Dr. Howard Hayden, a Physics Professor Emeritus from the University of Connecticut: “Which of the 20-odd major climate models has settled the science, such that all of the rest are now discarded? …"
"Edward H. Gleason: “Baum's attempt to close out debate goes against all my scientific training…disingenuous and unscientific.”
"Atmospheric Chemist Roger L. Tanner: "…I consider myself a progressive Democrat. Nevertheless, we scientists should know better than to propound scientific truth by consensus and to excoriate skeptics with purple prose."
"William Tolley: "I take great offense that Baum would use Chemical and Engineering News, for which I pay dearly each year in membership dues, to purvey his personal views and so glibly ignore contrary information and scold those of us who honestly find these views to be a hoax."
"William E. Keller wrote: “However bitter you (Baum) personally may feel about CCDs (climate change deniers), it is not your place as editor to accuse them—falsely—of nonscientific behavior by using insultingly inappropriate language….”
"ACS member Wallace Embry: “I would like to see the American Chemical Society Board 'cap' Baum's political pen and 'trade' him to either the New York Times or Washington Post."
