‘Mr. Gore’s Movie has Claims no Informed Expert Endorses’
By Bob Unruh
More than 31,000 scientists across the US, “ including more than 9,000 PhD.s in fields such as atmospheric science, climatology, Earth science, environment and dozens of other specialties, have signed a petition rejecting “global warming,” the assumption that the human production of greenhouse gases is damaging Earth’s climate.
“There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate,” the petition states. “Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”
The Petition Project actually was launched nearly 10 years ago, when the first few thousand signatures were assembled. Then, between 1999 and 2007, the list of signatures grew gradually without any special effort or campaign.
But now, a new effort has been conducted because of an “escalation of the claims of ‘consensus,’ release of the movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by Mr. Al Gore, and related events,” according to officials with the project.
“Mr. Gore’s movie, asserting a ‘consensus’ and ‘settled science’ in agreement about human-caused global warming, conveyed the claims about human-caused global warming to ordinary movie goers and to public school children, to whom the film was widely distributed. Unfortunately, Mr. Gore’s movie contains many very serious incorrect claims which no informed, honest scientist could endorse,” said project spokesman and founder Art Robinson.
I read about this petition and many of the scientists that allegedly signed it have said they never did. So who’s scamming now?
Care to reveal your source? It occurs to me that you probably have mixed up some stories. It was the 1995 IPCC report on climate change that had many of the contributing scientists demanding their names be removed from the document after it was extensively edited to fit a political agenda. http://www.si.umich.edu/~pne/PDF/ecofables.pdf
It should be called the Great Global Con Job. The reason Al Gore will not debate is because he know that this Global Change is the biggest Scam on the not only the American people, but also the the world.
News Flash, the climate has been changing since time began. Just look at all the cash Al Gore is getting from his Carbon Scam. It is the Newest Snake Oil of the 21st Century. Wake up America!
Today, June 3rd it was disclosed that NASA cooked the books on Global Warming because of political pressure from the Global Warming Con folks.
oops, sorry Al.
you are all completly retarded
Oh! Well that puts us in our place and proves your points quite convincingly. We’ll just close up shop now. We can’t defend our positions in the face of that logic!
Actually, the earth is warming so fast that our thermometers can’t keep up. I had over 1,200 pages of irrefuable, empirical data proving that warming is out of control but it got lost when the ship it was on got stuck in some very cold white stuff while trying to cross the ice free northhwest passage. That white stuff was everywhere. It’s quite hard, floats in water. We brought some up on deck and heated it in a pot. As luck would have it, the white stuff vanished completely. As it vaporized an equal measure of water condensed from the atmosphere and took its place. This stuff is like nothing we’ve ever seen before.an alien virus perhaps? Our captain calls it waterdummy.
