Consider This....


‘In any case, average world temperature is simply a statistical artefact.
The actual experienced temperature varies enormously in different parts of
the globe; and man, whose greatest quality is his adaptability, has
successfully colonized most of it. Two countries at different ends of the
earth, both of which are generally considered to be economic success
stories, are Finland and Singapore . The average annual temperature in
Helsinki is less than 5ºC. That in Singapore is in excess of 27ºC – a
difference of more than 22ºC. If man can successfully cope with that, it is
not immediately apparent why he should not be able to adapt to a change of
3ºC, when he is given a hundred years in which to do so. ‘

20/20: The Debate is Not Over (Video) (8min)
The Great Global Warming Swindle (Video) (1hr 14min)

A Treaty Built on Hot Air, Not Scientific Consensus (S. Fred Singer, Ph.D. Physics, The Wall Street Journal)
Climate consensus and the end of science (National Post, Canada)
Consensus is Nonsensus in Scientific Matters (Michael R. Fox, Ph.D. Physical Chemistry)
Don't Believe the Hype - Al Gore is wrong. There's no "consensus" on global warming (Richard S. Lindzen, Ph.D. Professor of Meteorology, MIT)
Global warming "consensus" continues to melt away (James Inhofe, B.A. Economics, Power Magazine)
Global Warming's Senseless Consensus (Steve Milloy, B.A. Natural Sciences, M.S. Health Sciences)
Science is the pursuit of the truth, not consensus (Financial Times, UK)
The Dangers of Consensus Science (National Post, Canada)
They call this a consensus? (Financial Post, Canada)

"Consensus"? What "Consensus"? Among Climate Scientists, The Debate Is Not Over (Science & Public Policy Institute)
Global Warming: The Origin and Nature of the Alleged Scientific Consensus (Richard S. Lindzen, Ph.D. Professor of Meteorology, MIT)

Scientific Consensus on Global Warming (PDF) (The Heartland Institute)
"A survey of 530 climate scientists from 27 different countries determined there is no consensus regarding the causes of the modern warming period, how reliable predictions of future temperatures can be, and whether future global warming would be harmful or beneficial. Assertions that “the debate is over” are certainly not supported by the survey results. Two-thirds of the scientists surveyed (65.9 percent) disagreed rising CO2 is causing climate change and 72.6% did not agree we could predict what the climate will do 100 years from now."

RE: “The scientific consensus on climate change” (Benny Peiser, The letter Science Magazine refused to publish)

"The results of my analysis contradict Oreskes' findings and essentially falsify her study: Of all 1117 abstracts, only 13 (1%) explicitly endorse the 'consensus view'. [...] 34 abstracts reject or doubt the view that human activities are the main drivers of the "the observed warming over the last 50 years". 44 abstracts focus on natural factors of global climate change."

Survey: Less Than Half of all Published Scientists Endorse Global Warming Theory (DailyTech)

"Medical researcher Dr. Klaus-Martin Schulte recently updated this research. Using the same database and search terms as Oreskes, he examined all papers published from 2004 to February 2007. [...] Of 528 total papers on climate change, only 38 (7%) gave an explicit endorsement of the consensus. If one considers "implicit" endorsement (accepting the consensus without explicit statement), the figure rises to 45%. However, while only 32 papers (6%) reject the consensus outright, the largest category (48%) are neutral papers, refusing to either accept or reject the hypothesis. This is no "consensus." In fact of all papers published in this period (2004 to February 2007), only a single one makes any reference to climate change leading to catastrophic results."

Survey of State Climate Experts Casts Doubt on Link Between Human Activity and Global Warming (National Center for Policy Analysis)

Little Consensus on Global Warming (The Pew Research Center)

"Americans generally agree that the earth is getting warmer, but there is less consensus about the cause of global warming or what should be done about it. Roughly four-in-ten (41%) believe human activity such as burning fossil fuels is causing global warming, but just as many say either that warming has been caused by natural patterns in the earth's environment (21%), or that there is no solid evidence of global warming (20%)."

Position Statements:
Should Scientific Societies Issue Position Statements?

"...we often hear how the Nation al Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the American Meteorological Society (AMS) have issued statements endorsing the so-called "consensus" view that man is driving global warming. But what you don't hear is that both the NAS and AMS never allowed member scientists to vote on these climate statements. Essentially, only two dozen or so members on the governing boards of these institutions produced the "consensus" statements. It appears that the governing boards of these organizations buckled to pressure from those promoting the politically correct view of UN and Gore-inspired science." - James Inhofe, B.A. Economics

Russian scientists still negative about Kyoto protocol

"Russian academicians are still negative about the Kyoto protocol to the UN convention on climate change, a leading scientist told a Friday news conference.

Academician Yury Izrael, who chairs the Russian Academy of Sciences' council-seminar on the Kyoto protocol, said the council had confirmed its position on climate change remained the same. [...]

Izrael said Russian Academy of Sciences President Yury Osipov's signature on the document was "a misunderstanding."

Izrael said the document had been discussed collectively only at today's seminar. Russian academicians asked Osipov to recall his signature. [...]

Russian scientists said they still considered the Kyoto protocol was scientifically ungrounded, and would be an ineffective way to try to achieve the aim of the UN convention on climate change. They also said it was harmful for the Russian economy"

Al Gore is right, the debate is over - there is NO 'Consensus' on "Man-Made" Global Warming.
