BREAKING: Sixteen prominent scientists say that global warming is nothing to worry about!
Let's see who they are:
Claude Allegre, former director of the Institute for the Study of
the Earth, University of Paris; J. Scott Armstrong, cofounder of the
Journal of Forecasting and the International Journal of Forecasting; Jan
Breslow, head of the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism,
Rockefeller University; Roger Cohen, fellow, American Physical Society;
Edward David, member, National Academy of Engineering and National
Academy of Sciences; William Happer, professor of physics, Princeton;
Michael Kelly, professor of technology, University of Cambridge, U.K.;
William Kininmonth, former head of climate research at the Australian
Bureau of Meteorology; Richard Lindzen, professor of atmospheric
sciences, MIT; James McGrath, professor of chemistry, Virginia Technical
University; Rodney Nichols, former president and CEO of the New York
Academy of Sciences; Burt Rutan, aerospace engineer, designer of Voyager
and SpaceShipOne; Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut and former
U.S. senator; Nir Shaviv, professor of astrophysics, Hebrew University,
Jerusalem; Henk Tennekes, former director, Royal Dutch Meteorological
Service; Antonio Zichichi, president of the World Federation of
Richard Lindzen is a well-known U.S. skeptic who has had numerous papers refuted; Harrison Schmitt has forgotten the geoscience he learned at Harvard and is a sell-out to oil and gas industries; Will Happer has published stuff that has been blasted as heavily erroneous; Burt Rutan is totally not a scientist; and all these guys have been over-utilized again and again by the skeptical side to try and lend false legitimacy to pseudoscience. I think daily for the next two weeks I'll post links about each of them.
Claude Allegre: French climategate ends in sceptics humiliation
And then I'm going to write a letter to Harrison Schmitt.
