Hal Lewis, a Professor Emeritus of physics at the University of California at Santa Barbara and a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for many years, has had enough. He can no longer put up with the corruption of the Society's membership and processes, and has resigned from the Society by means of a letter of resignation sent to its president. And to what does he attribute the corruption that has driven him out?
It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist.He goes on to cite chapter and verse of the Society's action and inaction with regard to global warming, climate change, and whatever other term is to be applied to this subject area.
Naturally, the U.S. press wouldn't give this much (or any) coverage Professor Lewis attacks an important shibboleth of theirs. For press coverage, one must go to the Telegraph in the rather more open British press. In this country, coverage is left to the blogs, particularly including Gateway Pundit and Watts Up With That. And that, too, helps prove Professor Lewis' point.
