Prominent Physicist Resigns From American Physical Society to Protest Global Warming Inquisition

Via AoSHQ via Watts Up With That.

Excerpts from The Global Warming Policy Foundation:


For reasons that will soon become clear my former pride at being an APS Fellow all these years has been turned into shame, and I am forced, with no pleasure at all, to offer you my resignation from the Society.

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. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare.

APS management has gamed the problem from the beginning, to suppress serious conversation about the merits of the climate change claims. Do you wonder that I have lost confidence in the organization?

Your own Physics Department (of which you are chairman) would lose millions a year if the global warming bubble burst. When Penn State absolved Mike Mann of wrongdoing, and the University of East Anglia did the same for Phil Jones, they cannot have been unaware of the financial penalty for doing otherwise.

I want no part of it, so please accept my resignation. APS no longer represents me, but I hope we are still friends.


Harold Lewis is Emeritus Professor of Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, former Chairman; Former member Defense Science Board, chmn of Technology panel; Chairman DSB study on Nuclear Winter; Former member Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards; Former member, President’s Nuclear Safety Oversight Committee; Chairman APS study on Nuclear Reactor Safety Chairman Risk Assessment Review Group; Co-founder and former Chairman of JASON; Former member USAF Scientific Advisory Board; Served in US Navy in WW II; books: Technological Risk (about, surprise, technological risk) and Why Flip a Coin (about decision making)

    During the peak of the Industurial Revolution (closer to 1800 maybe 1820, the temperature was the coldest then not hottest. I found that out in one of my lab research assignments. If we review Tielhard de Chardin’s theories, we see the earth is a living breathing system, so wouldn’t that mean a robust system that enjoys being “used” will get a little warm? Also, could the warming of the Earth, if it is a system be indicative that the system foresees a colder climate in the horzon and is trying to prepare the aggregate (its little data running around) from being burned with coldness? Something to think about!

    I have no doubt that the mother church, Anglican church is behind this Global Warming crap: if you read the U.S. news you will see that all the previoius failed presidents were from Ivy Leagues with distant connections to England: she definitely has a planned laid out creating her own instances along the way. Caveat Emptor!
