Prominent Physicist Resigns In Disgust Over Global Warming ‘Scam’

The vaunted “climate consensus” continues to crumble.  The latest domino to fall is Harold Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California in Santa Barbara, who has tendered his resignation from the prestigious American Physical Society (APS).  Lewis’ resignation letter to APS President Curtis G. Callan Jr is a biting indictment of the climate change racket (printed in full at The Telgraph blog) and deserves to be quoted at length:

“[M]y 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.”

The reason, Lewis makes clear, is the APS’s complicity in;

“[T]he 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….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.”

Tell us again, Mr. Gore, about the debate being over.
