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.
- 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."
