Professor Harold Warren Lewis, a respected physicist who previously advised both the U.S. government and the Pentagon, shocked his peers when he disseminated his letter of resignation from the American Physical Society.
Lewis accused the American Physical Society of supporting “the global warming scam, with the trillions of dollars driving it that has corrupted so many scientists.” The physicist’s letter contained a number of complaints, including the APS’ lack of a response to his endeavours to gather a committee to evaluate evidence for a human link to climate change. Lewis revealed that global warming was “the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud” he has even seen in his career.
Lewis said his former pride at being an APS Fellow turned into shame, which is why he decided to resign. According to Lewis, one problem was the organization’s “appallingly tendentious” statement on climate change, which is “certainly not representative of the talents of APS members” as he has long known them, the physicist claimed. Because of this, he joined forces again with some colleagues and petitioned the council to reconsider it. APS appointed a secret committee that “never met, never troubled to speak to any skeptics, yet endorsed the statement in its entirety.” The council admitted the existence of some uncertainties, but they were brushed aside “to give blanket approval to the original.” The original statement was eventually kept.
After the physicist publicly resigned from the APS over issues having to do with climate change, the organization sent a statement in which it “totally” rejected Lewis’ claims that global warming is a “pseudoscientific fraud” and a “scam.”
