Why are so many retired PhDs Climate Skeptics?

I would like to collect some data on the average age of climate skeptics vs alarmists. I think alarmists are younger.

The college fix reports on Dr. Terry Hughes.

You will never read or hear any of this from the scientific and political establishments,” he said. “I’m now retired, so I have no scientific career to protect by spreading lies.”

Among Hughes’ theories, he said he believes the desire to continue the climate change arguments has a “racist” component to it. His evidence? A 1974 National Security Study Memorandum written by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

“NSSM 200 states that American economic supremacy can be maintained only if U.S. foreign policy is aimed at reducing the non-white population worldwide,” he said. “We need their natural resources to maintain our standard of living.”

Hughes said the U.S. has carried out that policy successfully by supporting the one-child policy in China, and also accuses the government of “targeting aborting baby girls using ultrasound technology that is rampant in both China and India, the two countries producing the most atmospheric carbon dioxide by far.”

The researchers threw out good data on sea temperatures recorded on buoys, and “corrected” it with what he said was bad data from ships, Dr. Bates said, according to The Mail.

“He’s retaliating. It’s like grade school,” said Glenn Rutledge, a former physical scientist at NOAA who worked with Dr. Bates.

Marjorie McGuirk it also says Dr. William A. Nierenberg, a geophysicist who is director emeritus of the Scripps Institution and who has expressed doubt that global warming will be as severe as some scientists have predicted. A number of feedbacks might act to limit global warming, he said. “In fact,” he said, “the average global temperature change could be almost zero” because of the many feedback mechanisms. But the operation of the mechanisms could nevertheless impose a “severe” price in terms of the regional climate changes they would cause.

It goes on to say

Some scientists say the Ramanathan-Collins findings could lead to better predictions about the extent of the expected global warming. The predictions rest largely on computerized mathematical models of the climate system that all scientists agree are crude and flawed. One of the major flaws has to do with the effect of clouds.
