U.S. Senate Report:
Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007
PIF: Here’s something you will not see (at least not on in any detail) of the nightly mainstream news or in your local paper. And that’s a shame. On the other hand this is a good time to release such a report, since no one in the media will have time to cover it; they are all busy covering an election which won’t happen for nearly a year. I do think this is very difficult for them – covering an election so far out, since it means scaling back on the all-important tabloid celebrity and crime stories. What time do they have left to cover a report which goes against "what everyone knows" to be the gospel truth?
Proponents of man-made global warming like to note how the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) have issued statements endorsing the so-called "consensus" view that man is driving global warming. But both the NAS and AMS never allowed member scientists to directly vote on these climate statements. Essentially, only two dozen or so members on the governing boards of these institutions produced the "consensus" statements. This report gives a voice to the rank-and-file scientists who were shut out of the process.
The PIF would also like to note Dr. Gary D. Sharp appears as one of the signatories to the report.
