The words, "science distorted by money," sums it up in a nutshell.
The gravy train trundles on at an ever increasing speed, with a dangerous curve in the track just ahead, waiting to derail it completely.

"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.... I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion."

Meanwhile, failed wannabe scientist, LessFactMoreHype, is happy to write Lewis off as past his sell by date.

And is easy enough for a ninety year old former scientist to remember, thought there is NO indication that he ever researched climate so it remains 'ignorant opinion'. Just as a dentist is no better than your barber commenting on prostate cancer.

He even past the 'average life expectancy'. I expect that he really quit the APS because he just couldn't handle the yearly dues any more.

Point is that there is no 'message' to sell here. There is an uninformed opinion by a cranky old man with no actual science to promote. And his comments are purely rhetorical and political in nature. There IS evidence that he is somewhat 'eccentric' and a curmudgeon.

LessFactMoreHype, AKA, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty, our esteemed professor of BS here at Topix, has decided he knows more about everything than the 87 (not 90) year old Harold Lewis.
Let's drink in his words:

And your 'expert' opinion is worth how much more than his?

Is that the best you can do?

Meaning what?

Yet another pathetic comment.

In your 'expert' opinion.

My bet is that he's less cranky than a guy who argues that forty is spelt with a U.

That would be a 100% improvement on your useless comments.

What, "evidence?"

It's time for you to come clean and post a list of your achievements in the sciences, especially climate science, including all PhDs and Masters degrees, Mr Undoubtably Spelt Fourty?
