Aftershock from Climategate

Anthony Watts’ always excellent web site is carrying news of Dr. Harold Lewis’ resignation from the physics organization APS.  Lewis is Professor Emeritus in physics at University of California in Santa Barbara.  His resignation puts another hole through the zombielike head of the warmists’ claim that “all reputable scientists agree” on global warming.

[T]he global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried [the American Physical Society] 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.  (Lewis’ letter)

Not only does Dr. Lewis disagree with the warmists claims and methods, his resignation letter says he found a great many other scientists who wanted the whole thing investigated by the APS in a more orderly way.  Great cataracts of government money have corrupted the process as well as the people driving it, he said, in just the same way as the cash flow within the military-industrial complex has corrupted the nation’s defense establishment.

The debate is no longer a genuine debate, and it’s time to admit that no well-informed person can seriously regard warmists’ claims as trustworthy.  The whole world needs to reboot the entire discussion and start over from scratch.  This is certainly no time to be slashing the tires of America’s troubled economy by imposing a crippling carbon tax or — you must trust Bro. Steve on this — establishing a carbon credit market which promises to be the most corrupt entity outside of Mogadishu.

And the lame duck Congress is coming, peopled by angry Democrats bent on vengeance against disobedient American voters.  A big energy bill with a warming based carbon scheme was the one item on Mr. Obama’s Euro-left agenda that never got any traction during the last two years.  Watch for it after the election.


  1. Mr. Xyz

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

    If you aren’t familliar with the 10:10 dust up, see these videos.

    While watching the first one, ask yourself if it’s sincere or if it’s a spoof.

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

  2. It’s a sad day for science when a brilliant Physicist such as Hal Lewis is forced by disgust out of a society he helped found. But then again, all days are bad days for science as long as the Global Warming hoax continues.
