Skeptical scientists overwhelm global warming conference

Al Gore was ridiculed by an Indian geologist at a recent summit of the UN's International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) held in Oslo. The International Geological Congress has been dubbed the geologists' equivalent of the Olympic Games with participation by the world's top geologists.
"I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists," [Dr. Arun D.] Ahluwalia, a fellow of the Geological Society of India, said during a question and answer panel discussion.
Dr. Ahluwalia is with the Center of Advanced Study in Geology at Punjab University and a visiting scholar of the Geology Department at University of Cincinnati.

Dr. Ahluwalia also accused the climate panel as being elitist:
Ahluwalia, who has authored numerous scientific studies in the fields of geology and paleontology, referred to the UN climate panel as the "elite IPCC." "The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn't listen to others. It doesn't have open minds."

Ahluwalia, a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the Planet also criticized the promoters of man-made global warming fears for "drawing out exaggerated conclusions" and took the UN to task for failing to allow dissenting voices.
Global warming has been questioned by many scientists worldwide including Professor Charles Hall from SUNY-Syracuse who said:
“About two thirds of the presenters and question-askers were hostile to, even dismissive of, the IPCC and the idea that the Earth's climate was responding to human influences. This was rather shocking to me who knows of several other such scientists but had no idea there were so many.”
The voices against global warming are becoming louder even as more scientific evidence is pointing to the possibility of global cooling.
