'I Don’t Believe There is a Climate Crisis,' Nobel Prize Winning Scientist Says

Physicist says IPCC is spreading misinformation with political motives

A Nobel Prize-winning scientist is blasting climate alarmism, as well as predictions made by activists who say that human activities have created a climate crisis.

At Quantum Korea 2023 Seoul, Nobel laureate Dr. John Clauser, a CO2 Coalition Board of Directors member, delivered a keynote address bluntly stating, “I don’t believe there is a climate crisis,” as reported by the CO2 Coalition. Clauser’s comments were translated by the organization from original reporting in Seoul Economic Daily.

Clauser said, “key processes are exaggerated and misunderstood by approximately 200 times.”

The event was held by the Ministry of Science, ICT, and Future Planning.

Clauser, who received the Nobel Prize in Physics last year and has worked as a researcher at UC Berkeley, said that the world is not experiencing climate crisis and told a crowd of young scientists and engineering students that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is spreading misinformation.

“Misinformation is being spread by those with political and opportunistic motives,” he warned. “Even chatbots like ChatGPT can be better at lying than humans,” adding that “distinguishing truth from falsehood is a challenging task for both humans and computers.”

Clauser isn’t the first mainstream scientist to buck the official narrative suggesting the world is experiencing a climate crisis.

In 2013, scientists working on a climate change study say they were told to cover up the fact that the global temperature hadn’t risen for the previous 15 years. Leaked documents showed “deep concerns among politicians about a lack of global warming over the past few years,” the DailyMail reported, at the time.

Last year, more than 1,100 scientists signed a declaration stating that there is no climate emergency. The document included signatories from around the world, and Professor Ivar Ivar Giaever, a Norwegian physics Nobel Prize laureate, led the authors.

“To believe the outcome of a climate model is to believe what the model makers have put in. This is precisely the problem of today’s climate discussion to which climate models are central,” the scientists wrote. “Climate science has degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science.”

Still, other scientists have presented research explaining that CO2 does not cause global warming but that CO2 levels rise after temperatures have already gone up.

In 2017, the head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency told CNBC that “No, I would not agree that (carbon dioxide) is a primary contributor to the global warming that we see.”
