Daily Mail article Friday May 30th. 2008 by LITTLEJOHN. Last week, Dr Arthur Robinson, of the University of Oregon, announced to a packed Washington Press Conference that 31,000 scientists had signed an online petition challenging the conventional wisdom that man-made C02 emissions were causing ‘global warming’. Enlarge   He said he was aware that critics would claim this list was phoney, but said signatories had been carefully vetted and at least 9,000 had PhDs. This went largely unreported on either side of the Atlantic. Any dissent from the great global warming scam, however valid, is dismissed as heresy. Tomorrow, an eight-day ‘climate change’ festival kicks off in Birmingham. I was up at Villa Park a couple of weeks back, and the climate in Birmingham didn’t seem to be much different from when I lived there 30 years ago. If anything, the air’s cleaner than ever since most of the heavy, metal-bashing industries closed down and the fumes from the old Ansell’s Brewery and HP Sauce factory no longer hang heavy in the wind. Still, why let the facts ruin the party? Let’s hope it stays dry for them. ********************************************************************************** lightworkers.org/for… 31,000 Scientists Rejecting Global Warming Theory to be Named Today By Partial editing from Lawrence Solomon – Financial PostMay 19, 2008 – 11:10:17 AM Printer friendly page On Monday, May 19th at 10:00 am, at the National Press Club, Dr. Arthur Robinson of The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine 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. The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine’s Petition Project is spearheaded by Dr. Frederick Seitz, past president of the National Academy of Sciences and of Rockefeller University, and as reputable as they come. The petition drew media attention, but little of it was revealed. It seems the ‘follow-the-money’ standards won-out once again. It would appear the fact that an extraordinary number of scientists hold views against the global warming mantra, would derail the Gore-Train leaving corporations with empty bank bags they were designed to collect. As layed out in “Global Warming: A Convenient Disguise”, the bait-and-switch playbook was implemented, and the old favored neo-con trick was in full play. Instead of focusing on the content of the peer reviewed studies, the press focused on presumed flaws that critics found in the petition. Some claimed the petition was riddled with duplicate names. There were no duplicates, just different scientists who happened to have the same name. Some claimed the petition posse’s frauds. There was only one fraud: Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, planted by a Greenpeace organization to discredit the petition and soon removed. Other names that seemed to be phony – such as Michael Fox and Perry Mason, were actually bona fide scientists, properly credentialed who just happened to share the same name as these popular actors. Original signatories to the petition and others, outraged at Kyoto’s corruption of science, wrote to the Oregon Institute and its director, Arthur Robinson, asking that the petition be brought back. “E-mails started coming in every day,” he explained. “And they kept coming.” The writers were outraged at the way Al Gore and company were abusing the science to their own ends. “We decided to do the survey again.” Using a subset of the mailing list of American Men and Women of Science, a who’s who of Science, Robinson mailed out his solicitations through the postal service, requesting signed petitions of those who agreed that Kyoto was a danger to humanity. The response rate was extraordinary, “much, much higher than anyone expected, much higher than you’d ordinarily expect,” he explained. He’s processed more than 31,000 at this point, more than 9,000 of them with PhDs, and has another 1,000 or so to go – most of them are already posted on a Web site at petitionproject.org. Why go to this immense effort all over again, when the press might well ignore the tens of thousands of scientists who are standing up against global warming alarmism? “I hope the general public will become aware that there is no consensus on global warming,” Robinson says, “and I hope that scientists who have been reluctant to speak up will now do so, knowing that they aren’t alone.” ************************************************************************************************************************* www.petitionproject…. www.petitionproject…. Why is the Petition Project necessary? In December 1997, then U. S. Vice-President Al Gore participated in a meeting in Kyoto, Japan during which he signed a treaty to ration world energy production based upon fear of human-caused global warming. This treaty was not, however, presented to the United States Senate for ratification. Since before that Kyoto meeting and continuing to the present day, Mr. Gore and his supporters at the United Nations and elsewhere have claimed that the “science is settled’ – that an overwhelming “consensus” of scientists agrees with the hypothesis of human-caused global warming, with only a handful of skeptical scientists in disagreement. Moreover, these proponents of world energy rationing have consistently argued for more than 10 years that, in view of this claimed scientific “consensus,” no further discussion of the science involved in this issue is warranted before legislative action is taken to heavily tax and ration hydrocarbon energy. Since, however, these claims were not successful in convincing the United States government to initiate energy rationing, the United Nations has held a series of international meetings attended by a central group of about 600 scientists, some additional scientists outside of this group, and a large number of political and bureaucratic representatives – approximately 2,000 in all. The United Nations has also hosted larger meetings, including many non-scientist participants from environmental, business, and political organizations. During and after each of these meetings, there have been further publicity campaigns claiming that the “science is settled” – that the “consensus” of scientists in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming is so overwhelming that further examination of the science is unnecessary. Realizing, from discussions with their scientific colleagues, that this claimed “consensus” does not exist, a group of scientists initiated the Petition Project in early 1998. Thousands of signatures were gathered in a campaign during 1998-1999. Between 1999 and 2007, the list of petition signatories grew gradually, without a special campaign. Between October 2007 and March 2008, a new campaign for signatures was initiated. The majority of the current listed signatories signed or re-signed the petition after October 2007. The original review article that accompanied the petition effort in 1998-1999 was replaced in October 2007 with a new review incorporating the research literature up to that date. The renewed petition campaign in 2007 was prompted by an escalation of the claims of “consensus,” release of the movie “An Inconvenient Truth” by Mr. Al Gore, and related events. 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. The campaign to severely ration hydrocarbon energy technology has now been markedly expanded. In the course of this campaign, many scientifically invalid claims about impending climate emergencies are being made. Simultaneously, proposed political actions to severely reduce hydrocarbon use now threaten the prosperity of Americans and the very existence of hundreds of millions of people in poorer countries. As Professor Seitz states, in his Petition Project letter which speaks of this impending threat to all humanity, “It is especially important for America to hear from its citizens who have the training necessary to evaluate the relevant data and offer sound advice.” The Petition Project is a means by which those citizens are offering that advice. *********************************************************************************************
