But your news, if true, is welcome. Let those three, of course not including Watts, let's be clear on that, show what they have in their science.
No more hiding behind gossip for them. No more skeptics for you!
Liar? You lunkhead. APS reviews it's policy statements every five years.

The American Physical Society formally reviews its statements every five years. In accordance with that process, the APS Panel on Public Affairs (POPA) formed a Subcommittee to review its Climate Change Statement....

As part of the POPA-approved process, on January 8, 2014 the Subcommittee convened a workshop with six climate experts....

Check the date on your link... November 18, 2007

"If true"?

"I was one of the experts invited to attend the January 8 Workshop. The other invitees were Bill Collins, Ben Santer, Isaac Held, Richard Lindzen, and John Christy."
-- Judith Curry

The story is about how some skeptics are now part of their process, aka "climate experts".

btw, from JC's post, "Finally, while speaking of the APS, I have an invited presentation at the forthcoming March APS meeting in Denver, Causes and implications of the growing divergence between climate model simulations and observations"

Feel stupid?

You should.

<quoted text>Actually I have 2 unlike a welfare troll.But this should make you smile Obozobot:
The American Physical Society (APS) has signalled a dramatic turnabout in its position on "climate change" by appointing three notorious climate skeptics to its panel on public affairs (POPA).
They are:
Professor Richard Lindzen, formerly Alfred P Sloan Professor of Meteorology at Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a highly regarded physicist who once described climate change alarmism on The Larry King Show as "mainly just like little kids locking themselves in dark closets to see how much they can scare each other and themselves."
John Christy, Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, who has written: "I'm sure the majority (but not all) of my IPCC colleagues cringe when I say this, but I see neither the developing catastrophe nor the smoking gun proving that human activity is to blame for most of the warming we see."
Judith Curry, Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech, a former Warmist (and still a self-described "luke warmer") who has infuriated many of her more extremist colleagues by defending skeptics and by testifying to the US House Subcommittee on the Environment that the uncertainties in forecasting climate science are much greater than the alarmists will admit.
As Anthony Watts has noted, this is news guaranteed to make a Warmist's head explode.
The reason it's so significant is that it comes only three years after one of the APS's most distinguished members - Professor Hal Lewis - resigned in disgust at its endorsement of what he called "the global warming scam."
In fact, Delingpole's new blog seems to be the source for this cut'n paste.

Will it bear scepticism?

"teabagger" is political lingo....not scientific. but politics are all your crowd is about, right?

yes, climate change is indeed a fact!! that has always been the case. the claim by alarmists that man made co2 is exacerbating change has no factual footing. it's a flimsy untested theory.

We don't need a forum for that, we already know. Starting with why Fox loves to call itself a news channel when in fact it's just an opinion channel much like the home shopping network. 90% of what is claimed on Fox is just not true and the 10% of the time when it is true, no one notices.

Please don't speak poorly of the Tea Party. I've met many of them and they are really nice fun family people. They do lots of sports with their kids and invite friends and family over for barbecue in the backyard and sometimes down at the beach.

Sure, they live amongst us. I know. I feel sorry for them. They are dumb and elderly. Very vulnerable to charlatans and other Fox News liars.
