Posted on 12/14/2007 10:29:01 AM PST by Aristotelian
"Significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming."
BALI, Indonesia - The UN climate conference met strong opposition Thursday from a team of over 100 prominent international scientists, who warned the UN, that attempting to control the Earth's climate was "ultimately futile."
The scientists, many of whom are current and former UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) scientists, sent an open letter to the UN Secretary-General questioning the scientific basis for climate fears and the UN's so-called "solutions."
"Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems," the letter signed by the scientists read. The December 13 letter was released to the public late Thursday.

Imagine, scientists promoting economic growth and wealth generation as the solutions for global warming. Who would have thunk it?
The U.N. says it, Al Gore says it. My goodness, how much more evidence do you need?
Silly Indonesians. Don’t they know there’s a consensus already? Manbearpig will not be happy about this.
It’s a great story but there is a thread already.
BUT that would make AlGore meaningless!!
Some scientists are going out on a limb and saying that there might not even BE a manbearpig and if there is, it most likely isn’t half man, half bear and half pig.
Of course, those scientists are still in the minority and all risk being fired from their jobs.
Its a great story but there is a thread already.
I’ll second that! (great story part) ping
The global warming nuts love this kind of stuff. It’s the basis for MORE study money.
Some really silly scientists are trying to claim that your breakdown would result in a manbearpig and a half. If only they could understand “consensus math”. We need to rid the world of this archaic superstition that a number has some constant value. We’ve nearly done away with the notion that words have meaning and we have to take on numbers next - and soon because it’s almost too late!
I think you’re on to something there. Proving that a manbearbig is indeed half man, half bear and half pig should be the work of an entire generation of university professors, mathematicians and scientists.
LMAO!!! As if the "global warming" scam is about solving "global warming"!
Uh, hey you scientists - - it's about the money. It's all about the money. Specifically, US taxpayer money.
If you will just keep your freakin mouths shut, I'm sure the UN will find a way to cut you in....
Where is coagitator on this thread? He posts his dribble and then when contrary postings appear, he disappears
Ah. My search didn’t turn it up, otherwise I wouldn’t have posted this.
“Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity’s real and pressing problems,” the letter signed by the scientists read.”
About says it all, doesn’t it.....
SUre - as long as there’s plenty of government funding of it.
FYI, the Law of the Sea Treaty is the same thing. It would levy a tax an seabed mining and the revenue would go to the UN.
Imagine if the UN could TAX THE WORLD!
It is poorly attended, as is this. Genetic search is also not easy if one is looking for positive results.
The wrath of the Goracle and his rabid m,inions of gorons will come down on them..
Government funding, of course. Can’t have a manbearpig alert without oodles and oodles of government funding.
Shhh...don’t confuse the MSM with alternate opinion.....
and this one is from an scientist who ALSO got a Pulitzer alongside Gore - and for HIS work on GW - but we don't hear about him, because he REFUTES in strong language what Gore and Gang are saying/doing...
"As a contributor to the IPCCs 2007 report, I share the Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore. Yet I and many of my peers in the British House of Lords - through our hereditary element the most independent-minded of lawmakers - profoundly disagree on fundamental scientific grounds with both the IPCC and my co-laureates alarmist movie An Inconvenient Truth, which won this years Oscar for Best Sci-Fi Comedy Horror.
There's also this film by Scientists: "The Great Global Warming Swindle"
The film is available on CD - and also online - takes a time to download, but worth it. (have a cup of coffee)
Shorter version here
I have been in correspondence with the leading scientist on this film - they have been able to get it shown in the UK and in Canada - but are having great resistance in the US - big surprise.
I have all these and many other links saved = saves a lot or time when you need the info to refute the dumbas*ses that swallow the very dangerous hype
Yes, it’s futile.
Al Gore will have us all getting around barefoot on horseback and reading by candlelight, while the Chinese will be happily chugging about in Mercedes Benz and flying first class.
The UNIntelligent committee
The UNScience committee
The UNEthical committee
Look on the bright side in your scenario Gore will be Chinese
Not possible. The Goracle already said the debate was over.
If they're debating, does that mean...
...the Goracle was...
It used to be 2,000 scientists for GW, then a few weeks back it was down to 200 scientists for GW. Now it’s 100 against it. So our efforts to stop global warming must be working.
I was listening to Beck this morning, a caller said a Rochester school superintendent didnt budget for slow plows this year because she heard about global warming. And of course this week they got hammered.
Replace the word scientists with politicians and it's the same mystery.
That is what Science is all about. Objective truth. Not hand-waving, and singing ‘its the end of the world as we know it’ to anyone who has the temerity not to believe something you do.
She must also have been having a few shots of JACK with her coffee.

(From: U.N. Blackballs International Scientists from Climate Change Conference
The Heartland Institute ^ | December 4, 2007 | Tom Swiss)
As the debate on man-made global warming has been heating up, the UN has tried to freeze out the scientists and new evidence, summarily dismissing them with the claim "the science is settled."
James M. Taylor, senior fellow for The Heartland Institute explained, "It is not surprising the UN has completely rejected dissenting voices. They have been doing this for years. The censorship of scientists is necessary to promote their political agenda. After the science reversed on the alarmist crowd, they claimed 'the debate is over' to serve their wealth redistribution agenda."
