More than 30,000 scientists and other professionals with expert knowledge of natural sciences have signed the Oregon Petition.
See videos on the YouTube channel 1000Frolly, run by Dr. Robert Ian Holmes.
Only a few real scientists, including disgraced Dr. James Hansen and corrupt Dr. Mario Molina, support climate alarmism. The rest are serial perjurer Michael Mann and countless practitioners of “environmental studies” and “climate change science.”
Climate alarmism is a huge fraud that is riding a gravy train of enormous size. The climate change industry alone boasts an annual revenue of $1.5T (yes, $1.5 trillions). It’s likely an exaggeration but there are still hundreds of billions of dollars of taxpayers money that are spent on climate alarmism promotion – the largest PR operation in history.

Freeman Dyson is not a doctor; he’s proud of that fact.
You must pay careful attention to details! If you missed a little detail here, readers may wonder what other little details you’ve got wrong.
If you look at the real statics as to what is causing the most (nearly double of fossel fuels) carbon dioxide, you will find that it is the corporate (and independent) agraculture industry with the manuer from animals, over growth of algae from fertilizers, and depleation of land and rain forest for cattle and other mass raising of animal farms. But oddly enough, none of these climate zealots are saying much of anything regarding that. Cause next to fossel fuels food is the most vital resource or commodity.
And we’ve been able to make cars capable of 50 mpg for over 50 years. But when it comes to agraculture what are we to do then….stop eating meat all together???
This also goes without saying that methane is several-times more worse of a “green-house” gas. But again nobody talks about that!!!
Talk about these scientist being “full of shit”!….literally to the point whereby they won’t (and refuse to I’ve come to find out) talk about methane produced from animal crap.
And lets just add insultvto injury…. I’d be willing to bet that these scientists that speak out about the carbon dioxide issues drive around in gas-guzzling SUV’s and heavy, large engine, luxary cars. I’de be willing to bet my Socia Security check for the month that the vast majority do so.
Bob McCarthy methane breaks down and is completely gone in about 5 years. The total amount of methane in the atmosphere is the same now as in 2005.
It is unfortunate that the whole climate issue discussion has been reduced to name-calling. The idea that carbon dioxide is a pollutant makes no sense. It is exhaled by animals and needed by vegetation, but that reality is hidden behind language like “spewing carbon”. Although the downside risk should not be neglected, it will still take years of careful study to get a decent handle on what is really going on. Computer models are not reality.
Thank you for your fine efforts.
One correction – our petition gathering more than 31,000 scientist signatures was circulated in 2007. An earlier version with exactly the same petition statement was circulated in 1998 and obtained 17,000 signatures. See petitionproject.org.
(You have “Oregon Petition (1998)” on this web site. It should read “Oregon Petition (2007”
How come an Australian PhD such as myself cannot sign the petition?
Why is the list restricted to US citizens?

I assume that anybody interested in climate change must have seen (or heard a lot about) Al Gore’s 2006 movie, “An Inconvenient Truth”. Would somebody who espouses the climate catastrophe position please point out ONE THING that Big Al predicted in his film that came true. Let me help: Nothing, Nada, Zip.
what fatuous nonsense – the rate of both polar and ice sheet melting is worse than predicted – so I guess your ridiculous position is that if the genocide of the unborn espoused by those of you who hate the creation is actually occurring more quickly than predicted then you feel vindicated. Your argument shows just how sick and evil those of you who wish to despoil the garden entrusted to mankind to steward truly are.
Michael – don’t forget to take your medicine.
I see why you didn’t post the names of scientists who do believe in climate change. The list would be way too long since over 97% of scientists believe in climate change.
At least 97% of believers in climate cult do believe in climate cult. This is a trivial statement. They are free to call themselves whatever they like, even “scientists”. That does not make them real scientists. The list of real scientists who “believe in climate change” (as this term is understood and used by this cult) would be very short. The only name that comes to my mind is James Hansen.
The 97% hoax has been long ago debunked (even by the IPCC). Two grad students working under an Australian professor embarked upon a project whereby they searched abstracts of scientific papers published between 1991-2011 that included the term “climate change”. They identified about 12,000 papers that met this criteria. There were 30,000 authors who wrote these papers. These author were contacted by the grad students and asked to answer a short survey a) is CO2 a greenhouse gas and, b) has the earth warmed since 1850 and c) has mankind added CO2 to the atmosphere (incidently, all three are true). Well, about 2/3 of the authors couldn’t be bothered to respond to such a silly survey. So the grad students got about 10,000 responses from the 30,000 scientists originally contacted. Emails were sent out to these approximately 10,000 authors asking for elaboration on their climate change positions. Only about 1200 of them responded. Of the 1200, 97% of them agreed that global warming was happening and was dangerous. So only 1200 of the 30,000 authors (4% !) responded. There’s your 97% concensus, Bill Mason. Not so impressive, eh?
Actually, the 97% meme was launched by Naomi Oreskes in 2003. The paper was immediately retracted or withdrawn, but the number lived on.
And, most of the 97% have some motive for believing in climate change, specifically it would harm them in some way professionally. The gentlemen listed here have already climbed the mountain of success and could care less what others think of their opinion!
Right. But there is no 97% of any kind of scientists, even fake ones, in support of climate alarmism. Those who repeat this obviously fake number are bound by a dogma.
Some of what you say doesn’t match with my understanding of the world. But, I’ve also not done the deeper digging into wikipedia’s processes that I’d have to do to find out whether I agree or not with what you are saying.
I would be interested in doing some of that research and discussing the findings here, because I’d like to have the opportunity to revise my opinion as well as understand your own viewpoint more. My question for you is: would you be willing to discuss these aspects of about wikipedia in more depth here? (the goal isn’t to persuade you differently… the goal is just to understand our viewpoints more deeply)
I suggest you to read Wikipedia meta pages, especially those about the “elections”. Also, search in Non-Fake Media Search.
Also, the following resources criticize Wikipedia: http://wikipediareview.com/ and http://wikipediocracy.com/ , but this is not an endorsement.
just because someone has the degree, doesn’t necessarily mean they know how to use it.
I guess this man missed the class on chaos theory
Robert Laughlin is a Nobel Laureate in Physics! Don’t trust Wikipedia – it is controlled by the leftist Wikimedia Foundation from San Francisco.
With respects, if you disagree with anything on wikipedia, you can go and make an edit, or engage in a public discussion with the people who maintain the page you are interested in. Even if they are somehow biased, you can present your case there for others to see on the Talk page. As far as I’ve ever seen, it isn’t an organization which is “controlled” in the same way top-down managed media outlets are, so there’s lots of places for dissenting views to be presented there.
(fwiw, as far as I know, someone being a nobel laureate in what looks like sub-atomic physics doesn’t make them an expert on climate issues, anymore than someone being the world’s top-rated chef necessarily knows how to grow wheat)
My point here isn’t to say that your feelings about climate change are wrong. It is a big and complex issue. I’m merely hoping you can bring constructive and data-driven arguments that support your view to the table. We need everyone’s data and dispassion here.
I am replying to the Wikipedia part of your comment. You might be surprised, but the Wikipedia is a top-down managed media outlet, just like The New York Times or Encyclopaedia Britannica. Unlike traditional media outlets, Wikipedia hides identities of the holders of the real editorial power (Arbitrators, Stewards, Bureaucrats etc.) from the public. Also, Wikipedia is a fully owned subsidiary of the Wikimedia Foundation Inc.
See the official chart, or read about the organizational structure in this this or this Wikipedia article. Disregard every claim with a vague word (“community”, “consensus” etc.) in it.
Ordinary people editing Wikipedia articles are contributors, not real editors. Calling you and other contributors “editors” sounds like a con to me. You can modify content of an article, but somebody else can immediately undo or neuter your modification. You can talk to other contributors like you, and convince or compromise with them. If your change or compromise is politically neutral, it will stay. If it goes against the far left politics of the Wikimedia Foundation, higher ranking editors will intervene and make sure their version of the text prevails.
That happened many times, but you can try yourself. Try to edit the Climate Change entry to make it less alarmist or more realist.
