God America is always coming with this nonsense and anti reality rants. Constantly taking complete ignorance to GW unless it affects their wallets.
This thread is ignorant. Its exactly saying, Well It's not my fault so lets pump oil. Sure its happening so why bother do anything about it. There's is plenty of oil lets burn it, we don't affect anything in this world etc. I'm going to use my gas guzzeler because GW is farce. I'm going to use coal because it doesnt' affect the environment. why use renewables at all, when GW isn't real (insert's laughter here) I'm not going to pay tax for fossil fuels, but I'll pay higher tax for my grand massive automobile I have in my garage, gotta have my big car on the road ya know.... We could go on, but you get the POINT.
Hideous and obnoixious stuff that people pipe up in America. take responsibilty for your space in this world.

The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (JPandS), until 2003 named the Medical Sentinel, is the journal of the association. Its mission statement includes "… a commitment to publishing scholarly articles in defense of the practice of private medicine, the pursuit of integrity in medical research … Political correctness, dogmatism and orthodoxy will be challenged with logical reasoning, valid data and the scientific method." Articles in the journal are subject to a double-blind peer-review process.
Some past articles and commentaries published in the journal have argued:
- that the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are unconstitutional
- that "humanists" have conspired to replace the "creation religion of Jehovah" with evolution
- that increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has not caused global warming
- that HIV does not cause AIDS
- that the "gay male lifestyle" shortens life expectancy by 20 years.
A series of articles by pro-life authors published in the journal argued for the existence of a link between abortion and breast cancer; such a link was rejected by a National Cancer Institute workshop and is not recognized by major medical organizations such as the American Cancer Society or World Health Organization.
The journal is not listed in the major literature databases of MEDLINE/PubMed nor the Web of Science. The World Health Organization found that a 2003 article on vaccination published in the journal had "a number of limitations which undermine the conclusions drawn by the authors."
Quackwatch lists JPandS as an untrustworthy, non-recommended periodical.
Investigative journalist Brian Deer wrote that the journal is the "house magazine of a right-wing American fringe group [AAPS]" and "is barely credible as an independent forum."

The petition in the original post is signed by about 31000 scientists of whom just over 9000 have PhD's. I may be being a little snooty, but how much major science is done by people without a PhD?
Finally, the three authors. The first two are in their own science centre and are primarily in medical research, although they do have a political agenda against climate change. The third has been shown to have a dubious background in his science research, such as being funded by oil companies.
So all in all I would say that this petition certainly has me convinced that there is no such thing as AGW, after all all these excellent climate change, atmospheric, oceanographic scientists have been involved.
Come on give me a break.
