“We urge the United States government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December, 1997, and any other similar proposals. The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind.
There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.”
The preceding is a petition that has been signed by over 19,000 American scientists. I might add that none of them have asked for, or received government grants totaling $2 billion to study “global warming.” Also, for the record, the warmest year on record was 1997. Between 1997 and 2001 the average global temperature per year either remained steady or declined. From 2001 to the present, average global temperatures have steadily declined. Now we are being told by the “global warming” alarmists it is a sign that it really is getting warmer. What! That’s like saying that Exxon’s huge profits really indicate that it’s losing money. Duh!
In spite of the evidence, the incoming administration and the overwhelmingly Democratic Congress has said that combating “global warming” will be its number one priority. Hold onto your wallets folks, the taxman cometh.
We’re through the looking glass Alice.
