Top Scientist Resigns from Top Science Org Admits Global Warming Is a Scam
Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/10/10 | Jim Hoft

Top US scientist Hal Lewis resigned this week from his post with the biased American Physical Society. He admitted global warming climate change was nothing but a scam in his resignation letter.

The Telegraph reported:

The following is a letter to the American Physical Society released to the public by Professor Emiritus of physics Hal Lewis of the University of California at Santa Barbara.

Sent: Friday, 08 October 2010 17:19 Hal Lewis From: Hal Lewis, University of California, Santa Barbara To: Curtis G. Callan, Jr., Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society 6 October 2010

Dear Curt:

When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago).

Indeed, the choice of physics as a profession was then a guarantor of a life of poverty and abstinence—it was World War II that changed all that. The prospect of worldly gain drove few physicists. As recently as thirty-five years ago, when I chaired the first APS study of a contentious social/scientific issue, The Reactor Safety Study, though there were zealots aplenty on the outside there was no hint of inordinate pressure on us as physicists. We were therefore able to produce what I believe was and is an honest appraisal of the situation at that time. We were further enabled by the presence of an oversight committee consisting of Pief Panofsky, Vicki Weisskopf, and Hans Bethe, all towering physicists beyond reproach. I was proud of what we did in a charged atmosphere. In the end the oversight committee, in its report to the APS President, noted the complete independence in which we did the job, and predicted that the report would be attacked from both sides. What greater tribute could there be?

How different it is now. The giants no longer walk the earth, and the money flood has become the raison d’être of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs. 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. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.

So what has the APS, as an organization, done in the face of this challenge? It has accepted the corruption as the norm, and gone along with it…

Sounds like there are still a few scientists left who have integrity.

Great find! the Gorebull Warming Scam....the main reason our kids no longer aspire to the Sciences as a profession, now as corrupt as gummit, Accounting, Finance, or the rest of what used to be a fairly corruption free marketplace of ideas, the Greater Republic, America.

He admitted global warming climate change was nothing but a scam

This implies he was on board with the scam and had a change of heart. I don't get that from the letter.

There is so much big money chomping at the bit to be able to trade "carbon credits" (which are almost as bogus as "Rainbow Stew") that it will take a while for this BS to subside.

They're still using so much of their (& government) money to "buy" global warming that their lackeys are still gung ho about it.

Add to that the brain-dead greenies that will believe any scenario where humans are the bad guys and we're left with a big mess, still heavily promoted by the media.
