American Physical Society Fellow Resigns Over APS Refusal To Look Into The Science Of Global Warming

I knew about this resignation letter a few days ago, because I, along with Professor Lewis and a couple of hundred other scientists, were signatories to several petitions to the American Physical Society to get them to actually look into the science of man-made global warming with an open mind. The APS has an official position on global warming that basically says that it is real and there is no doubt about it. Any scientist who tells you that we know everything and that there is no chance for doubt is not really a scientist. Science, by definition, is the search for answers. As soon as we put on the blinders and refuse to examine the evidence with an open mind, especially when the existing theories do not fit reality, science becomes nothing more than religion based on faith, not science based on reason and reality. This attitude of the APS did not change even after the totally damning revelations of the “Climate-gate” e-mails that clearly showed that science was taking a back seat to politics and money. (And, don’t forget, one of those very e-mails admitted that the data did not fit the theory, and that was “embarrassing”.

I did not make the letter of resignation public at the time, because I did not know if Professor Lewis meant it to be made public. But, no less than the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), itself, has published the letter of resignation. I will still not publish it in it’s entirety, but you can, and should, read it at the IPCC site link.

I have to admit that I thought it was one of the best letters of resignation that I have ever seen. And, I think he stated the position of myself and tens of thousands of other scientists, when he stated his reason for resigning from the APS after being a member for 67 years.

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.

That is a strong condemnation coming from a Fellow of the APS. I especially liked the way that he pointed out that Professor Curtis Callan of Princeton University, who is president of the APS, is dependent upon global warming for several millions of dollars a year in grants from the government to study it. And, of course, he is just one of thousands of scientists who depend upon the bogey man of global warming for all, or a good portion, of their government funding. It makes me laugh when scientists such as myself, who have looked at the evidence both for and against global warming and come away with a very strong conviction that global warming is all about a vast transfer of wealth and not about the scientific method, are accused of being in the “back pocket” of big oil. I wish I was, but I am not, and never have been. If nothing else, anyone who reads the Climate-gate e-mails in even a cursory manor and who has even a passing knowledge of the scientific method can see that what was happening had nothing to do with the scientific method and everything to do with “cooking the books”. (And, I think “cooking” is a good word to use in the case of global warming.)

When one looks at even the most simplistic frauds involved in the “science of global warming”, such as Al Gore’s vaunted Vostok ice core data, it becomes obvious that CO2 does not cause global warming. I have even shown that if you take Al Gore’s own data, and present it in a scientific and coherent manner, not in the fraudulent 3rd grade science class method used by Gore, that CO2 does not drive temperature. If anything, temperature might drive CO2, but it is clear that CO2 does not drive temperature.

And, after you read Professor Hal Lewis’ resignation letter, be sure you look at his brief biography. He is one of the most distinguished physicists in the world, not some fringe kook.

    MSM will try to keep this quiet just like last week’s global warming scandal.

    If you aren’t familiar with the 10:10 dust up, see the videos below.

    While watching the first one, ask yourself if it’s sincere or if 10:10 is being pranked on by skeptics.

    Keep watching until you’re sure, and then watch more.

    Note: the resignations of Chris Landsea and Roger A Pielke SR. both hint at conspiracy.

    Landsea resigned because of an unethical press conference that was likely used by Al Gore as a green light to build his movie around Hurricane Katrina.

    Pielke resigned because while lead author for a major climate report, scientists worked behind his back to undermine him. These incidents are well known and not hard to research.
    Even if you are familiar with the 10:10 thing, there’s a variety of over the top eco stuff in the playlist.

    Obviously, the greenies have teamed up with the Muslims and al Qaeda. Actually, there is nothing new, excepting for the glorification of blowing people up, which had been reserved to Muslims until now. I’ve written about disgusting and wacked out commercials by the environmental wackos and global warmingistas before.

    The fact that they are resorting to such suggested violence may be an indication that we are finally winning. But, it was just revealed that the global warmingistas are changing tactics. Now that they realize that most thinking people reject their religion, they are planning to recast the danger of climate change as “a public health emergency” according to information that I have received from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). This “scientific” society, of which I am sadly also a member, made this announcement of their changing their “plan of attack” a couple of weeks ago.

    oh fuck you. quit blaming the Muslims for all of our problems. you are an ignorant human being. FUCK YOU
