Dozens of scientists are demanding that their names be removed from a widely distributed Heartland Institute article entitled 500 Scientists with Documented Doubts of Man-Made Global Warming Scares.

Just a bit of a misquote, but then what else could one expect from a public relations guru
The actual title of the Heartland article is:
"500 Scientists Whose Research Contradicts Man-Made Global Warming Scares"
http://www.heartland.org/Article.cfm?artId=21978

It says something different from "500 Scientists with Documented Doubts of Man-Made Global Warming Scares."

They don't say the scientists have doubts....they say their "research contradicts global Warming Scares'

Now the fact that their research itself contradicts the AGW scare may be very inconvenient politically when one is trying to maintain funding and stay on the gravy train, but it does not mean they have a right to protest a legitimate use of research.As research, it may be quoted. That a fuss is being made about what is fair play is because desmogblog is run by a public relations firm...not scientists....They are spinners with an ironic name who actually get paid big bucks to stir up this kind of tempest in a tea pot.



500 Scientists Whose Research Contradicts Man-Made Global Warming Scares
Written By: Dennis T. Avery
Published In: News Release
Publication Date: September 14, 2007
Publisher: Hudson Institute

Abstract:

The following list includes more than 500 qualified researchers whose research in professional journals provides historic and/or physical proxy evidence that:

1) Most of the recent global warming has been caused by a long, moderate, natural cycle rather than by the burning of fossil fuels;

2) The sun’s varying radiance impacts the Earth’s climate as more or fewer cosmic rays create more or fewer of the low, wet clouds that act as the Earth’s thermostats, deflecting more or less solar heat out into space.

3) Sea levels are not rising rapidly nor are they likely to;

4) Wild species are not being driven to extinction but rather are increasing the biodiversity of our wildlands;

5) Fewer human deaths are likely rather than more as the current warming continues, since cold is far more dangerous and the Earth is always warming or cooling;

6) Food production is likely to thrive during the decades ahead, rather than collapsing due to climate overheating; or

7) Our storms are likely to be fewer and milder as the declining temperature differential between the equator and the poles reduces their power.

The list includes researchers from many of the world’s top research institutions, such as the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory affiliated with Columbia University, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysical Research, the Woods Hole and Scripps Oceanographic Institutes, Sweden’s Upsala University, New Zealand’s Waikato University, South Africa’s Witwatersrand University, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The key dispute, of course, is whether the recent global warming has been due to humans burning fossil fuels or to the natural, moderate 1,500 year cycle discovered in the Greenland and Antarctic ice cores in the 1980s. Willi Dansgaard of Denmark and Hans Oeschger of Switzerland discovered the climate cycle, in the first long Greenland ice cores. Claude Lorius of France led the Antarctic team that reported on the first long Antarctic ice core in 1985. They shared the Tyler Prize--the environmental version of the Nobel--in 1996.

Dansgaard-Oeschger cycles have since been found in seabed and lake sediments, ancient tree rings, boreholes, cave stalagmites, glacier movements, and archeological artifacts all over the world. We rejoice that their work is now supported by hundreds of peer-reviewed research reports, with more than 1,000 authors and co-authors, from research institutions around the world.

This partial listing is derived primarily from the citations in our book, Unstoppable Global Warming Every 1,500 Years. As the time of our small staff permits, we will publish additional studies and their authors to support the very important view that the Modern Warming is natural and no more dangerous than were the Medieval Warming, the Roman Warming and the Holocene Warming before it.

Judy, did you consider the possibility that the title of the article in heartland.org was altered later to make the case against man-made global warming look stronger than it really is? Headlines often indicate bias. The other headline "500 Scientists with Documented Doubts of Man-Made Global Warming Scares", would actually be more fair and balanced in its presentation, but we all know that fair and balanced is the last thing you would appreciate!

Heartland Institute is bought and payed for by Exxon - nothing but a frunt group - and one that was promoting how safe second hand smoke is LOL Do a search on Heartland Institute Funding. And Judy knows this yet keeps feeding their garbage to us...
