Petition Project shows Global Warming as false

The Petition Project has gathered 31,000 signatures of scientists who disagree that there is AGW.

The Project's thesis has now been published in the prestigious American Journal of Physicians & Surgeons, a publication that does not align itself to articles on medical or scientific issues without considerable authenticity and factual evidence.

In excess of 31,000 scientists in the US now disagree with the UN opinion and science on anthropogenic global warming. Science and opinion which Labour has embraced wholeheartedly in justifying the ETS. The scientists with PhD’s in this petition alone outnumber the United Nations scientists by 15 to 1 and if you divide the total number of those that signed the ratio becomes 50 to 1.

This should prove to even the most hard-nosed chicken little that the science is not settled.

What all of us must do is reinforce to fellow Kiwis that the “science is not settled” and that NZ has made a “massive mistake” launching into an emissions trading scheme without a Royal Commission of Inquiry at least to support such far-reaching and certainly damaging legislation.


There are no experimental data to support the hypothesis that increases in human hydrocarbon use or in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are causing or can be expected to cause unfavorable changes in global temperatures, weather, or landscape. There is no reason to limit human production of CO2, CH4, and other minor greenhouse gases as has been proposed (82,83,97,123).

We also need not worry about environmental calamities even if the current natural warming trend continues. The Earth has been much warmer during the past 3,000 years without catastrophic effects. Warmer weather extends growing seasons and generally improves the habitability of colder regions.

As coal, oil, and natural gas are used to feed and lift from poverty vast numbers of people across the globe, more CO2 will be released into the atmosphere. This will help to maintain and improve the health, longevity, prosperity, and productivity of all people.

The United States and other countries need to produce more energy, not less. The most practical, economical, and environmentally sound methods available are hydrocarbon and nuclear technologies.

Human use of coal, oil, and natural gas has not harmfully warmed the Earth, and the extrapolation of current trends shows that it will not do so in the foreseeable future. The CO2 produced does, however, accelerate the growth rates of plants and also permits plants to grow in drier regions. Animal life, which depends upon plants, also flourishes, and the diversity of plant and animal life is increased.

Human activities are producing part of the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere. Mankind is moving the carbon in coal, oil, and natural gas from below ground to the atmosphere, where it is available for conversion into living things. We are living in an increasingly lush environment of plants and animals as a result of this CO2 increase. Our children will therefore enjoy an Earth with far more plant and animal life than that with which we now are blessed.

Wait this proponents of global warming porn pops in here with messages such as, oh, those names are not climate scientists, but they always champion RealClimate website authors especially the top dog warmist and pornographer, Dr. Gavin Schmidt of NASA who himself is not a climate scientist but a mathematician, ie, a PhD in mathematics. There is nothing wrong with that, but when warmist porn pointed out that some of AGW doubters are not climate scientist but mathematicians, then they're the ones who are the deniers.

And you can bet your boots that this petition won't make the front page of any national newspaper, nor headline TV news.


Gooner me old sausage, I have something to tell you that is deeply shocking.
The first is that the Northern Ireland environment minister doubts climate change and believes it to be natural.
The second shocking thing, were his commnts have bee reported by the BBC.
The 'consensus' is crumbling.

This was front page news about 6 months to a year ago. Is this the Deja Vu AGW discussion page...all over again...

Do you think Nixon should resign?

Gooner said...

Oh yeah, and for those who argue it matters for defence and trade consider this. The US Agricultural market is the most protectionist in the World despite the rhetoric of the US President being the leader of the free world. We are not going to get a FTA with the US unless the nuke policy goes and I doubt Key will do that, and Calrk certainly won't. In terms of defence, defence of who or what? The reality is that whoever becomes Le Prez will still have foreign policy directed towards US aggression, but the way that aggression is delivered will be different

In short, different means same.

Gooner said...

Oops, wrong post!

Earl, true, but just reminding people at a time when our poverty-fuelled ETS is about to be passed into law with no promise from the Nats that it will be 'gone by lunchtime'.

You are right Gooner.
It is shameful the Gnats are not developing policies around there being no AGW and no need for Kyoto and its related ETS and higher taxes.
It is hard to say you are better when you are no different to the Liarbore Beast.
Did Nicky Smith manage to be convicning this morning on Agenda?
At least Rodney can come up with a clear , well argued argument backed up by science. he is a former scientist and environmentalist after all, so should know more than the sheep in the Beehive, be they on the government or opposition benches.
