Wow, – this kinda sounds like what I have been saying over and over. (emphasis mine)
…the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM) will announce that more than 31,000 scientists have signed a petition rejecting claims of human-caused global warming. The purpose of OISM’s Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of “settled science” and an overwhelming “consensus” in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming and consequent climate damage is wrong. No such consensus or settled science exists. As indicated by the petition text and signatory list, a very large number of American scientists reject this hypothesis.
It is evident that 31,072 Americans with university degrees in science – including 9,021 PhDs, are not “a few.” Moreover, from the clear and strong petition statement that they have signed, it is evident that these 31,072 American scientists are not “skeptics.”
Go Oregon! Here’s the link to the press release.
And here’s a picture of Al Gore who will almost certainly launch ad hominem attacks on these scientists to try to discredit them. Mark these words (or some variation of them): “They (or maybe a few of them) received money from oil companies.”
