Real scientists and AGW

Hat tip to bingbing for this one.
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.
Who's that saying those heretical things about Mother Gaia and the blessed religion of AGW?  Some clown in the employ of Big Oil?  Some flat-earth-know-nothing?

Nope.   It's Professor Emeritus Hal Lewis of the American Physical Society.  A physicist.  A REAL scientist, not some IPCC quack.

Remember this the next time someone tells you "the science is settled".
