Re: [Phys-l] Prof. Hal Lewis resigns from APS

Spencer's data appear to me to show a definite upward trend. But I am going to choose to follow your smear on the data because it is on a website of someone who occasionally appears on the Rush Limbaugh show. I will totally disbelieve the data and its implications. I will now believe that there is a clear downward trend in the temperatures despite what I see with my own lying eyes.

Ah yes; there's an academic name to conjure with: A featured guest on

Spencer is a proponent of intelligent design as the mechanism for the
origin of species.^
He is an author of at least two scientific textbooks which feature the
word "politics" I believe.
