Are scientists being duped into abandoning their morals and publishing false studies on warming for grant money? A prominent physicist claims so, in a powerful resignation letter to the world's second largest physics society.
"[T]he global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it... has corrupted so many scientists" -- Harold Lewis

In perhaps the biggest critique delivered against the current state of global warming research "consensus", since "climategate" at the University of East Anglia, a renowned physics professor has written a lengthy letter resigning from the American Physical Society and condemning the state of warming research.


The letter was penned by Harold Lewis, an Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and is addressed to Curtis G. Callan Jr, Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society.  

Professor Lewis enjoyed a decorated career.  A World War II veteran, entering the world of academia upon his return home, Professor Lewis wrote multiple books and made valuable contributions to the fields of missile defense and nuclear power.  Recently, Professor Lewis took an interest to the topic of global warming research, as many of his physicist colleagues were becoming actively engaged in it.

What he found was alarming to him and in his resignation letter, he voices outrage and what he feels is a financially-motivated fraud that is corrupting his fellow scientists.  His following resignation letter was published, in its entirety, by the  Academic Advisory Council of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), which he became a member of late this year.  The GWPF is a UK think tank that takes a critical stance on proposed global warming legislation.
