Wow, 32,000 of the Worlds leading Scientists say NO!
Kyoto is a corrupt science these eminent Scientists state to the World.
Wonder where these Scientists were when Al Gore was accepting his Nobel Prize for his "Inconvienent Truth".
Certainly "Inconvienent" now that it shows BioFuels are now starving the Third World, in order to fill your Hybrid.
Guess Al Gore and his Scientist buddies forgot to mention that little inconvienence to the Third World's Hungry.
Though Climate Change, Global Warming are still serious issues, perhaps a revisiting of the Data should be audited to make certain we know what we speak of, before entering into the drastic side of solutions in the unknown.
Question: How many scientists does it take to establish that a consensus does not exist on global warming? The quest to establish that the science is not settled on climate change began before most people had even heard of global warming.
The year was 1992 and the United Nations was about to hold its Earth Summit in Rio. It was billed as -- and was -- the greatest environmental and political assemblage in human history. Delegations came from 178 nations -- virtually every nation in the world -- including 118 heads of state or government and 7,000 diplomatic bureaucrats. The world's environmental groups came too -- they sent some 30,000 representatives from every corner of the world to Rio. To report all this, 7,000 journalists converged on Rio to cover the event, and relay to the publics of the world that global warming and other environmental insults were threatening the planet with catastrophe.
In February of that year, in an attempt to head off the whirlwind that the conference would unleash, 47 scientists signed a "Statement by Atmospheric Scientists on Greenhouse Warming," decrying "the unsupported assumption that catastrophic global warming follows from the burning of fossil fuels and requires immediate action."
To a scientist in search of truth, 47 is an impressive number, especially if those 47 dissenters include many of the world's most eminent scientists. To the environmentalists, politicians, press at Rio, their own overwhelming numbers made the 47 seem irrelevant.
