Alarmists have airbrushed a top female scientist out of ‘women in climate’ history because she has taken the ‘wrong’ side on global warming.
Dr Judith Curry (pictured), is professor and former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, and one of the world’s most respected climate experts. But as a “luke warmer” – who believes in man-made global warming but not the catastrophic variety beloved by alarmists – she has grown increasingly distant from the CliSci establishment.
She originally appeared last year on a list of “20 women making waves in the climate change debate” on the website of the International Council for Science. (The ICSU was founded in 1931 to “promote international scientific activity in the different branches of science and its application for the benefit of humanity”)
But when an alarmist organisation in Australia called The Climate Council appropriated the list for its own propaganda purposes, the 20 women were mysteriously reduced to 19.
The Climate Council – a non-profit run by Australian alarmist Tim Flannery – had given Curry the Stalin airbrush treatment.
This was especially vindictive given that of all the women on the list, Curry was the one with by far the most expertise in the “climate change debate.”
