    Stopa — who is director of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network Computation Project and a nationally recognized expert on nanoscale electronics and computation — predicts a change in climate science in the near future.

    “Thomas Kuhn described changes in scientific paradigms that are sudden and surprising with the term ‘scientific revolutions,’” Stopa told The Daily Caller. “We may be witnessing such a scientific revolution in the theory of global warming right now. But alas, there are reactionary forces outside of the scientific community that are fighting vigorously to hold the line and keep up public concern if not outright panic.”

    Stopa is especially critical of international organizations that are calling for more regulations of greenhouse gases.

    “The IPCC (Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change), in releasing their Fifth Assessment Report, are struggling to maintain a sense of urgency about climate change that is belied by: a pause of fifteen years in global warming, a failure (until now) to correctly incorporate important natural climate driving effects such as solar forcing and ocean current, and a continued inability to fully incorporate the effects of cloud formation in their models,” Stopa told TheDC.

    Stopa isn’t alone in criticizing the IPCC’s science. A top MIT climate scientist called the latest IPCC report “hilarious.”

    Stopa, a lifelong fiscally conservative Republican, has authored seventy-five academic papers and received over a thousand citations of his work.

    Henry Binswanger of the Ayn Rand Institute commented thusly on Forbes:

    The latter explains the "mindless drone" belief in "global warming" among the general public, and I dare say it explains some of the "cry wolf" mentality of the drum-beaters for this faux science. That, and power madness fueled by a consuming desire of the elitist liberal to dictate to the rest of the world.
