I found this article from March 17 in the Cleveland Examiner.
(I have no idea if it's a reputable news outlet) I did an intensive search on ATS and couldn't find any thread on it so here are the details:
More than 700
scientist dicredit man-made global warming fears.
“59” might be the magic number for Americans to start thinking twice about global warming fears.
59 scientists around the world have officially added their names to the much-publicized U.S. Senate Minority Report that denounces claims about
man-made global warming. This pushes the tally of skeptical scientists to well over 700.
According to a new report, the 700-plus scientists are “now more than 13 times the number of U.N. scientists who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007
Summary for Policymakers.” Many of the scientists are “affiliated with prestigious institutions” including NASA, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Defense
Department, Princeton University, as well as countless others.
Skeptical scientific voices are enjoying more and more company in past weeks, especially in light of a recent article published in The Australian that
says Japanese scientists are largely rejecting man-made global warming claims. Japanese Geologist Dr. Shigenori Maruyama, professor at the Tokyo
Institute of Technology’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, said this month that “there was widespread skepticism among his colleagues
about the IPCC's fourth and latest assessment report that most of the observed global temperature increase since the mid-20th century 'is very
likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations.'"
I really was undecided about man-made global warming, but more and more I see respected scientists speaking out against it. Also as soon as I saw Al
Gore getting on the band wagon, well that was the clincher!
NOTE because of the age of the article I didn't put this in Breaking Alternative, if it has been reported sorry, I swear I looked on ATS!
