Here are a few snippets of his views on the state of climate science:

"It (man made global warming) is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist."

"The original Statement (official APS position on man made global warming) , which still stands as the APS position, also contains what I consider pompous and asinine advice to all world governments, as if the APS were master of the universe."

"In the interim the ClimateGate scandal broke into the news, and the machinations of the principal alarmists were revealed to the world. It was a fraud on a scale I have never seen, and I lack the words to describe its enormity. Effect on the APS position: none. None at all. This is not science; other forces are at work."

This line of reasoning has all the hallmarks of a religion. You are blinded by your faith.
