Alarmists Airbrush Judith Curry Out of ‘Women in Climate Science’ History

curryAlarmists 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.”

    Why does the list only include women?
    Why isn’t there a list of the top 20 (or19)
    SANE PEOPLE in Climate Science?

    The question should be
    by what right is she castigated ?

    She is either speaking the truth or she’s not.

    What proof do they have that she is lying ?

    What proof do they have that her skepticism is without merit ?

    And by what right do they claim that her skepticism is not part of science ?

    This is proof that the global warming argument isn’t supported by the science. The fall back is political control of the agenda. Very much like the way the Catholic church used the inquisition against those who questioned it’s ridiculous assertions hundreds of years ago. Dr. Curry should be proud to have such creatures as enemies. They fear her truth.

    I thought women stuck together better than this . Silencing a highly regarded and qualified scientist such as Dr. Curry shows how petty and terrified the global warming industry is of
    reasoned scientific debate .
    If the other women had any jam they would
    not tolerate the treatment of Dr. Curry .They are clearly afraid they could be next . The new scientific method on display and confirmed .

    Where skeptics are discouraged or punished you CANNOT call an endeavor “science”. Period.

    JH is spot on. This resembles much more the Spanish Inquisition than anything scientific. This is what happens when authorities try to [b]force[/b] belief.

    True science encourages divergent points of view. When those advocating competing view points are persecuted, this is a sure indication that we are dealing with politically motivated junk science.

    How ironic that so many people who promote this fraud and support scientific witch trials for skeptics proudly sport DIVERSITY and/or TOLERANCE bumper stickers on their Subarus…
