Scientists disagree about manmade ‘global warming’

Politicians and government agency heads for years have misled people with claims that most scientists agree “climate change is both manmade and dangerous.” With much of the American press continuously spreading this false news—and propaganda to support the flawed theory— many people now believe it. Worse, without skepticism they accept the “alarming,” bizarre projections spread about long-term catastrophic events for which there is no science-based evidence.

In 1998 a “Petition Project” was organized by a group of research physicists and physical chemists. The petition was signed by more than 31,000 American scientists, nearly one-third with PhDs. The petition urged the U. S. government to reject the 1997 “Kyoto” agreement putting limits on “greenhouse gases.”

The petition signers were qualified in science fields including atmosphere, earth, environment, computers, math, physics, aerospace, chemistry, biology, agriculture, biochemistry, medicine, general engineering and general science.

“The purpose of the Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of ‘settled science’ and an overwhelming ‘consensus’ in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming and consequent climatological damage is wrong.”

The petition unequivocally stated:

There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.
