American Physical Society Sees the Light: Will It Be the First Major Scientific Institution to Reject the Global Warming ‘Consensus’?

The American Physical Society (APS) has signalled a dramatic turnabout in its position on “climate change” by appointing three notorious climate skeptics to its panel on public affairs (POPA).

The reason it’s so significant is that it comes only three years after one of the APS’s most distinguished members – Professor Hal Lewis – resigned in disgust at its endorsement of what he called “the global warming scam.”

Disturbed by an “appallingly tendentious APS statement on Climate Change” which “was apparently written in a hurry by a few people over lunch, and is certainly not representative of the talents of APS members”, Lewis went public with his letter of resignation to the APS’s then President Curtis G Callan Jr. (Callan’s replacement Malcolm Beasley appears to be of a more skeptical bent. When he wrote earlier this year to President Obama congratulating him on his support for “science”, he studiously avoided any mention of the president’s war on climate change)
