"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. (Montford's
book organizes the facts very well.) I don't believe that any real
physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would
almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.
As I recall, Galileo Galilei did have a problem with the authorities when
he adamantly took a scientific stand. Of course, Nicolas Copernicus was
on his deathbed when he finally had his heliocentric theory published.
And Ole Roemer's claim of the finite speed of light was never widely
accepted until well after his death.
