Twelve times more than those
that put their names to the IPCC report
Over 650 scientists have put their names to a US Senate Minority
report that challenges the contention of the UN's International
Panel on Climate Change that there is a scientific "consensus"
on the causes of global warming.
Set to be released within the next 24 hours, the report features
contributions from hundreds of prominent researchers, including
current and former IPCC scientists, who are now speaking out in
opposition of the UN's stance on climate change.
The Senate report is an updated version of a
2007 release, with over 250 more
names added, highlighting how widespread dissent continues to grow
in the scientific community to the alleged “consensus” that the
modern warming is primarily man-made and is a crisis.
In comparison, twelve times fewer -
just 52 scientists - participated
in the much touted IPCC Summary for Policymakers meeting in April
2007. Climate scientists allied with the IPCC were recently
caught citing fake data to make the
case that global warming is accelerating.
The new Senate report will feature new peer-reviewed scientific
studies and analyses refuting man-made warming fears.
Of course the fact that the establishment likes to engage in regular
mass public deception by claiming the debate about global warming is
any dissent is tantamount to holocaust denial
doesn't bode well for potential media coverage of the report, unlike
UN climate conference in Poznan
which is being lavished with endless media attention about the need
for a global carbon tax to save the planet from the evils of plant
The self-proclaimed "consensus" behind man-made global warming
is one enforced by threats, intimidation and ignorance, as
highlighted by media coverage of last year's UN meeting in Bali,
skeptical climate scientists were shunned and
ignored for daring to express an opposing viewpoint.
Following the Bali resolution to impose a global carbon tax,
over one hundred prominent scientists
signed a letter dismissing the move as a futile bureaucratic scheme
which would diminish prosperity and increase human suffering.
Hundreds more skeptical scientists met in Manhattan last February at
International Conference on Climate Change
to discuss the side of the climate change debate that the
establishment media prefers to pretend does not exist.
Did the mainstream media even acknowledge these events? Not at all,
because they challenge the sacred cow that scientists
uniformly agree on man-made global warming.
As we have previously reported, less than half of all published
scientists endorse what has been dubbed the "consensus view".

After huddling with former Vice President Al Gore about
climate change, President-elect Barack Obama declared,
"The time for delay is
over, the time for denial is over."
While it is a problem, it
is also an opportunity to create jobs, make economy
stronger, and make the nation safer, even as the United
States helps save the planet, he said.
"We're not going to

"We all believe what
the scientists have been telling us for years now,
that this is a matter of urgency and national

Majority Of Scientists Do Not Support Man Made
by Steve Watson
August 30, 2007
Survey of peer reviewed
studies reveals less than 50% of published scientists
believe global warming is man made.
More skeptics than advocates
among scientific community while IPCC claim majority
endorse the theory.
A new survey of over 500 peer reviewed scientific research papers on
climate change, written between 2004 and 2007, has concluded that
less than half endorse what has been dubbed the "consensus view,"
that human activity is contributing to considerable global climate
In direct conflict with assertions by the International Panel on
Climate Change (IPCC) that a scientific consensus agrees
it is 90% likely that man is responsible for warming, Medical
researcher Dr. Klaus-Martin Schulte's survey contends that
only 45% support the theory and that is only if you include papers
that merely lean towards endorsement.
Though the survey has not yet been released, the results have been
submitted to the journal Energy and Environment, and science blog
DailyTech has obtained a pre-publication copy which states:
Of 528 total papers on climate
change, only 38 (7%) gave an explicit endorsement of the
consensus. If one considers "implicit" endorsement (accepting
the consensus without explicit statement), the figure rises to
45%. However, while only 32 papers (6%) reject the consensus
outright, the largest category (48%) are neutral papers,
refusing to either accept or reject the hypothesis. This is no
The figures are even more shocking when
one remembers the watered-down definition of consensus here.
Not only does it not require supporting
that man is the "primary" cause of warming, but it doesn't require
any belief or support for "catastrophic" global warming. In fact of
all papers published in this period (2004 to February 2007), only a
single one makes any reference to climate change leading to
Man made warming proponents have often pointed to a similar survey
that was conducted by history professor Naomi Oreskes on
peer-reviewed papers published on the ISI Web of Science database
from 1993 to 2003 which found that a majority of scientists
supported the theory.
Dr. Klaus-Martin Schulte sought to update the research and according
to DailyTech, used the same database and search terms as Oreskes but
reached a radically different conclusion.
The introduction and the summary of the IPCC's report was written
entirely by politicians under the mandate of the UN, the input of
actual scientists was minimal. In addition, all sections that were
written by selected scientists were edited to comply with the report
Some of the scientists involved even admitted that the IPCC models
failed to accurately predict climate change and that "none of the
climate states in the models corresponds even remotely to the
current observed climate".
By contrast, the ISI Web of Science database covers 8,700 journals
and publications, including every leading scientific journal in the
world and is not directly influenced by any governmental body.
Schulte's survey confirms the claim that the climate change momentum
has shifted among prominent scientists who are now benefiting from a
greater depth of research. A spate of new research papers has
significantly chilled fears of global warming.
The new survey provides undeniable proof that the world is being
sold a lie on climate change by a group of politicians and elite
lobbyists who wish to seize on the opportunity to hype the global
warming threat and use it as a means of social manipulation for
political and corporate gain.
As we have extensively reported, it is the elites, the establishment
and big business interests that are pushing these fears, not the
People who still trust the platitudes of politicians and elitists
who implore us to change our way of life, cough up more tax money,
and get on board with the global warming religion save being
linked with Holocaust denial, are as deluded and enslaved as the
tribes of Mesoamerica who, unaware of the natural phenomenon of a
solar eclipse, thought their high priests could make the sky snake
eat the Sun, and therefore obeyed their every demand.
Politicians are professional liars, they make careers out of
deceiving people and twisting reality to fit
pre-conceived agendas, yet a cascade of otherwise rationally minded
people are eager to blindly trust everything they have to say about
climate change, no matter how delusional it sounds.
They are also willing to comply with the ridiculous overbearing
"solutions" to climate change that will just coincidentally restrict
mobility and freedom of travel, regulate personal behavior, empower
and expand global government and reinvigorate the surveillance state
Big Brother ever wanted - but
surely they wouldn't lie to us about global warming to achieve it,
