EPW Committee Minority post list of 650 International Scientist against AGW
Today, the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee Minority (aka Republicans) posted a full list of 650 International Scientists who have spoken out against the Man-Made Global Warming Theory. I didn’t take the time to go through and read about every single scientist in the 231 page report but I did skim through it and recognized several names.
For those of you who may be wondering why this is such a big deal, proponents of anthropological global warming state that there is a “consensus” of scientists out there. This list seems to shatter the whole “consensus” theory unless by “consensus” they mean that except the many dissenting scientist, all scientists agree that global warming is caused by man. If that is their definition of “consensus” then they are correct. However, whenever I have seen the whole consensus argument used, it seems like they mean that there is no legitimate dissenters among us “deniers.” Obviously, from the extensive list above, they are wrong.
Oh and one other thing, science isn’t ruled by consensus. Remember Copernicus? Galileo? Yea, they were considered “deniers” in their own time.
