If you have not heard about this, don't worry. The Lapdog Media was busying covering Imam Obama's 52nd golfing trip in less than 2 years. The following is a letter to the American Physical Society, from Professor Emiritus of physics Hal Lewis, University of California at Santa Barbara.

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. For example:
1. About a year ago a few of us sent an e-mail on the subject to a fraction of the membership. APS ignored the issues, but the then President immediately launched a hostile investigation of where we got the e-mail addresses. In its better days, APS used to encourage discussion of important issues, and indeed the Constitution cites that as its principal purpose. No more. Everything that has been done in the last year has been designed to silence debate.

With each passing day, more and more people find where their honor, their courage, and their values scampered off to and when they can no longer take the mountain of bullshit the Leftists are shoveling our way, they come out swinging. And with each passing day, another card falls loose from their house of cards and the liberal Humpty Dumpty is fixing to fall and break.
Just think about how many areas of life this hoax has affected. This is a larger, more expensive hoax than anything Bernie Madoff could have thought up.ReplyDelete
We will not be allowed to buy incandescent light bulbs.
The construction business has been spending tons of money on LEED certifications and buildings.
Government on all levels has been spending millions on making their buildings and operations more "green".
Schools have built curriculum around this. Textbooks have been revised and rewritten to accommodate the hoax.
Homes from small to the White House have spent tons of money.
Etc, etc, etc.
The media was duped (as were these others) and doesn't want to admit it. It helps that they love the libidiot agenda of only the elites, in which they include themselves, gets the best and the rest of us serfs don't.
MSM will try to keep this quiet just like last week's global warming scandal.ReplyDelete
If you aren't familiar with the 10:10 dust up, see the videos below.
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.
Note: the resignations of Chris Landsea and Roger A Pielke SR. both hint at conspiracy.
Landsea resigned because of an unethical press conference that was likely used by Al Gore as a green light to build his movie around Hurricane Katrina.
Pielke resigned because while lead author for a major climate report, scientists worked behind his back to undermine him. These incidents are well known and not hard to research.
Good to read there are still some people of conscience left. Damn few and far between in academia,no question. Good post,Gunny.ReplyDelete
You, you mean, globaloney warming is a scam?!? I am shocked! Totally shocked!ReplyDelete
Dr. Lewis does an excellent job summing up the problem in today's scientific community. Most scientist do not wish to rock the boat any longer, dreading the possibility of losing their funding. It's this kind of complacency that is a breeding ground for junk science like the global warming hoax. Thank the Lord that every day more and more scientist are rebelling against this sophistry.ReplyDelete

Everyone hide in caves and we'll tell you when it's safe to come out;
No just leave your worldly goods, we'll tell you what you need.
It is all about control and money and they've been cold busted at it. We know it and the Left knows it but their inherent lack of integrity keeps them from admitting it.
BTW, buy incandescent bulbs by the case each time you go to the store. I do. Lowes has big sales of them.
Thanks for the comment and the link. I caught that and was amazed. My only question is when does Owl Gore go on trial for perpetuating a hoax.
And thank GOD for them waking up. Those hackers at East Anglia should be given Medals of Freedom for releasing those emails on this hoax.
Everyone involved, from Owl Gore on down, should be put on trial.
Yep, and WE knew it all along. Funny how the TRUTH WILL OUT no matter how many D movies Owl Gore makes! haha
Great quote by Heinlein. He was 100 years ahead of his time.
My father was calling the Dummycrats the party of doom and gloom in the 60's/70's!
I'm so glad you were on top of this.
The perpetrators of this scam, are athiests all.
There is no way you can believe in God, and believe in global warming.
Genesis 8:22 gives God's promise, and I believe Him. Like I said, those that are pushing global warming are athiests..they also have no problem with lying for a buck!
I have almost 200 bulbs stored in the basement. ;)ReplyDelete
