American Physical Society: Saying So Does Not Make it So on Climate

Statements by societies such as the American Physical Society (PAS) are written for a purpose… to persuade others to adopt their view of how they see an issue. And in every case the outcome depends upon underlying assumptions as well as who exactly is writing the document. Even when a statement such as the APS statement on climate is attributed to a large group, in reality only one person actually crafts the final statement typically imposing their political spin. Everyone one else goes along with silence being consent. And if a career in science hinges on consent to a statement, low and behold everyone agrees with it.

APS can say what it wants about climate. But saying so does not make it so. And the APS has issued a political statement as discussed here following in the footsteps of the IPCC by failing to recognize the underlying science.
