Nobel Prizes in Physics/Chemistry to be Awarded by IPCC?

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences KVA awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry to persons who have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind; for the most important discovery or invention within the field of physics and for the most important chemical discovery or improvement. 

KVA has in a statement expressed full support of IPCC, the UN Panel supplying the scientfic foundation of COP15. KVA insists, like the Royal Society, that its full support of IPPC is not shaken by Climategate giving evidence that IPCC builds on manipulated scientific data.  Like our Minister of Environment Andreas Carlgren, KVA seems to believe that it is very unlikely that such a Climategate could exist. The manipulated data could be precisely those supplied at the end of the KVA statement as main evidence of global warming.

How do we know that Climategate exists? Google gives 20 million hits on climategate, whereas our Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt gets 500.000. According to laws of statistics, it is thus 400 times more likely that Climategate exists than Reinfeldt does.

The logical conclusion seems to be: Since KVA trusts so much in the science of IPCC that not even a Climategate changes anything, IPCC should take over the nomination of the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry. After all, climate is just physics and chemistry. And IPCC should be the optimal organization for identifying persons who have conferred the greatest benefit to mankind. 

However, the pressure on scientific societies to revise previous support of IPCC after Climategate, is building up according to CBSNews:
  • The professional association for physicists APS is facing internal pressure from some of its most distinguished members, who say the burgeoning ClimateGate scandal means the group should rescind its 2007 statement declaring that global warming represents a dire international emergency. 
  • A letter has ben circulating saying :"By now everyone has heard of what has come to be known as ClimateGate, which was and is an international scientific fraud, the worst any of us have seen... We have asked the APS management to put the 2007 statement on ice until the extent to which it is tainted can be determined, but that has not been done. We have also asked that the membership be consulted on this point, but that too has not been done." 
In case KVA is a scientific society the pressure for revision also concerns KVA and a letter should be circulating... 

Our own Margot Wallström and Norway's Gro Harlem Brundtland firmly believe in IPCC, because there is scientific consensus on AGW!  But there is no scientific consensus! When will the curtain fall?
