In his keynote speech, Vaclav Klaus, elected President of the Czech Republic in 2003, commented at the first Heartland Conference on Climate Change in New York that the Czech Republic had just emerged from 70 years of communism and asked, incredulously, why anyone would go back. He was referring to the US and Europe, and identified environmentalism and climate change as the vehicles for the transit.
An energy policy built on the lie that human CO2 is causing global warming is likely to fail. It is a bigger lie when CO2 is incorrectly called carbon. The policy is guaranteed to fail when proposed energy alternatives cannot fulfill needs and will cause economic slowdown, decreased competitiveness, and further economic decay.
“It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the slightest doubt that this is so should read the Climategate documents, which lay it bare. I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that word revulsion a definition of the word scientist. So what has the APS, as an organization done in the face of this challenge? It has accepted the corruption as the norm, and gone along with it.”
~Harold Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, in his resignation letter to the American Physical Society (APS)
