Global Warming a ‘Pseudoscientific Fraud’

Harold Lewis, University of California emeritus professor and a member of the American Physical Society for 67 years, has resigned from the latter because of what he calls the global-warming scam. He says scientists have allowed themselves to be corrupted by the avalanche of money available for this spurious research. From a news article

“The money flood has become the raison d’etre of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs,” he wrote in a letter to APS president Curtis G. Callan Jr. of Princeton University. Lewis continued: “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 said the APS’s methods of closing down debate on climate change were a ‘corruption’ of its purpose.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
