Opinion (Hal Lewis, physicist): “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…
“I do feel the need to add one note, and this is conjecture, since it is always risky to discuss other people’s motives. This scheming at APS HQ is so bizarre that there cannot be a simple explanation for it. Some have held that the physicists of today are not as smart as they used to be, but I don’t think that is an issue. I think it is the money, exactly what Eisenhower warned about a half-century ago. There are indeed trillions of dollars involved, to say nothing of the fame and glory (and frequent trips to exotic islands) that go with being a member of the club.”
My Comment: In our times, everything in the world is up for sale, or exchange for other benefits. This is evident in the awarding of Nobel prizes, the empty talk of the United Nations, UNESCO, etc. The circle closes and clearly reveals the primitive nature of humanity, the egoistic desire.
In principle, how is it possible to condemn these people if none of us is able to make the smallest movement without any benefit for oneself, which is the energy required for motion! Only a higher reward, the discovery of the Creator, can awaken and push a person to carry out altruistic movement.
