Professor Harold Warren Lewis, was a highly respected physicist who previously advised both the U.S. government and the Pentagon, shocked his peers when he disseminated his letter of resignation from the American Physical Society.
In his 1990 he wrote a book, Technological Risk, in which he warned of the risks of global warming. And then, in 2010, after 67 years of membership, he resigned from the American Physical Society, citing what he saw as “corruption” from “the money flood” of government grants related to global warming.
His story is worth re-telling, over and over and over. The global warmers hate accounts like this.
Dr. Lewis accused the American Physical Society, in a letter, of supporting “the global warming scam, with the trillions of dollars driving it that has corrupted so many scientists.”
The physicist’s letter contained a number of complaints, including the APS’ lack of a response to his endeavours to gather a committee to evaluate evidence for a human link to climate change. Lewis revealed that global warming was “the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud” he has even seen in his career.
Lewis said his former pride at being an APS Fellow turned into shame, which is why he decided to resign.
According to Lewis, one problem was the organization’s “appallingly tendentious” statement on climate change, which is “certainly not representative of the talents of APS members” as he has long known them, the physicist claimed. Because of this, he joined forces again with some colleagues and petitioned the council to reconsider it.
APS appointed a secret committee that “never met, never troubled to speak to any skeptics, yet endorsed the statement in its entirety,” said Lewis. The council admitted the existence of some uncertainties, but they were brushed aside “to give blanket approval to the original.”
The original statement was eventually kept.
After the physicist publicly resigned from the APS over climate change, the organization sent a statement in which it “totally” rejected Lewis’ claims that global warming is a “pseudoscientific fraud” and a “scam.”
I’m always amazed to see how easy it is for the global warmers to trash their dissenters.
