From the San Francisco Chronicle :
I went to the APS web site to check on the controversy on the group’s global warming statement, to which Lewis objected. The short version: “The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring.”
Dissenting physicists urged members to contact APS biggies, who reviewed input from members. According to APS, some “63 percent of respondents supported the existing statement with little or no change, while 37 percent said they opposed the current statement and wanted either no statement or the alternate statement adopted.”
Interesting. In his book, “Earth in the Balance,” Al Gore asserted that 98 percent of scientists believe in global warming. Just last week, a Senate staffer told me that 99 percent of scientists share Gores’ take. Then how could it be at more than a third of APS respondents aren’t on board with the doomsday scenario — even though all the money and prestige and political pressure are on the global-warming alarmist side?
The point here is: If you can’t trust these guys to poll scientists accurately — a pretty simple task — why would you trust their climate models?
