Today: 31,000 scientists reject global warming hypothesis

This morning at 10 am there will be a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, revealing that "Petition Project" brought in 31,000 scientists who reject global warming.

Dr. Arthur Robinson of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine will release the names of over 31,000 scientists who participated in the OSIM's "Petition Project."
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.”
I hope Al Gore is paying attention. Stay tuned and see how much of this is covered by the mainstream media.

The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (OISM), sponsor of the petitiion, is headed by Arthur Robinson, an eccentric scientist who has a long history of controversial entanglements with figures on the fringe of accepted research. OISM also markets a home-schooling kit for "parents concerned about socialism in the public schools" and publishes books on how to survive nuclear war.

This so called Oregon Petition, was circulated in a bulk mailing to tens of thousands of persons. The only credentials necessary to sign it was that you must have an undergraduate degree in science. In addition to the petition, the mailing included what appeared to be a reprint of a scientific paper titled "Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide" and was printed in the same typeface and format as the official Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Robinson's paper claimed to show that pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere is actually a good thing. In reality, neither Robinson's paper nor OISM's petition drive had anything to do with the National Academy of Sciences. Robinson was not even a climate scientist, nor had his paper ever been published.

None of the coauthors had any more standing than Robinson himself as a climate change researcher. They included Robinson's 22-year-old son, along with two astrophysicists who worked at the George Marshall Institute, a Washington, D.C., think tank funded by a number of right-wing foundations,

Do you really think the petition is valid? Do you really?

I've seen this comment on several websites. It's not anonymous on the other sites. He goes by brewski. It appears these are the "talking points" for the AGW crowd. Do you really think Algore invented the internet? Do you really?
