13 Oct 10 - (Excerpts) - Not long ago, the Emeritus Professor of Physics
at the University of California, Harold Lewis, caused quite a stir in
science circles when he
resigned from the American Physical Society. Physics is an exacting
science, bound by immutable laws that are true throughout our universe.
It was not widely reported to the general public, but Lewis who had been
a member of the American Physical Society for 67 years, made his reason
quite clear after having received an APS statement supporting global
“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 scientists, can read that
stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition
of the word scientists.”
The entire global warming fraud has tainted groups like the American
Physical Society and the American Meteorological Society among others
that lent their prestige and support to it.
This brings us to an
opinion editorial by Michael E. Mann that was published in The
Washington Post on October 8 titled, almost comically, “Get the
anti-science bent out of politics.” Mann gained notoriety among climate
scientists for his “hockey stick” graph that alleged a steep rise in the
Earth’s temperatures while ignoring other critical factors in its long
history such as the medieval warm period. It wasn’t science. It was
propaganda, a deliberate falsehood.
The global warming hoax would not have lasted as long as it did if
governments all over the world didn’t throw millions of public funds
toward so-called climate change science that was, in reality, simply a
huge windfall of money for any scientist who wanted to cash in on it.
And many did.
What has Mann worried is that, if Republicans gain control of Congress
or even just the House, he is going to be hauled before Rep. Darrell
Issa (R-CA) who will be the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight
and Government Reform. Mann believes that a “hostile investigation of
climate science” will ensue.
He’s wrong. What will ensue will be an investigation of the manipulation
of science for the purpose of advancing political agendas hostile to the
welfare of the nation.
Desperately, Mann says, “My employer, Penn State University, exonerated
me after a thorough investigation of my e-mails in the East Anglia
archive.” Yeah, sure, we can be completely confident that Penn State
University is going to investigate itself after it and Mann benefited
from hundreds of thousands of dollars in climate science funding.
