UC Physics Professor Calls Global Warming a Scam
From National Review, Harold Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara said of the global warming scam: “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.
