You are not correct in your assessment. The APS showed no interest in examining the science in this
matter. Their decision was/is solely based on politics, as were the so-called investigations into
ClimateGate. Most, unbiased scientists that take the time to examine all of the documents and the
peer-reviewed scientific literature (not the IPCC reports) will arrive at the same conclusion as Professor
Lewis. The problem is that most scientists have difficulty imagining that the so-called climate experts
have engaged in poor quality scientific work, even to the point of fabricating data. There is an effort
underway to significantly alter the land-based measurements and data sets to get the desired results.
None of this is to deny that climate change is an ongoiong process, but rather a demand that higher
standards for data collection and analysis be used and that the entire process be transparent. We
have a huge number of people engaged in quasi-scientific work to promote a political agenda, rather
than being engaged in truth-seeking.
