U.S. Senate Report: Over 400 Prominent Scientists Disputed Man-Made Global Warming Claims in 2007 
Over 400 prominent scientists from more than two dozen countries recently voicedsignificant objections to major aspects of the so-called "consensus" on man-made globalwarming. These scientists, many of whom are current and former participants in the UNIPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), criticized the climate claims madeby the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.The new report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee's officeof the GOP Ranking Member details the views of the scientists, the overwhelmingmajority of whom spoke out in 2007.Even some in the establishment media now appear to be taking notice of the growingnumber of skeptical scientists. In October, the Washington Post Staff Writer JulietEilperin conceded the obvious, writing that climate skeptics "appear to be expandingrather than shrinking." Many scientists from around the world have dubbed 2007 as theyear man-made global warming fears "bite the dust." (LINK) In addition, many scientistswho are also progressive environmentalists believe climate fear promotion has "co-opted"the green movement. (LINK)
This blockbuster Senate report lists the scientists by name, country of residence, andacademic/institutional affiliation. It also features their own words, biographies, andweblinks to their peer reviewed studies and original source materials as gathered frompublic statements, various news outlets, and websites in 2007. This new "consensusbusters" report is poised to redefine the debate.Many of the scientists featured in this report consistently stated that numerous colleaguesshared their views, but they will not speak out publicly for fear of retribution.Atmospheric scientist Dr. Nathan Paldor, Professor of Dynamical Meteorology andPhysical Oceanography at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, author of almost 70 peer-reviewed studies, explains how many of his fellow scientists have been intimidated."Many of my colleagues with whom I spoke share these views and report on theirinability to publish their skepticism in the scientific or public media," Paldor wrote.

 Scientists from Around the World Dissent
This new report details how teams of international scientists are dissenting from the UNIPCC's view of climate science. In such nations asGermany,
Brazil, theNetherlands, Russia,Argentina,New ZealandandFrance, nations, scientists banded together in 2007 2
to oppose climate alarmism. In addition, over 100 prominent international scientists sentan open letter in December 2007 to the UN stating attempts to control climate were"futile." (LINK)Paleoclimatologist Dr. Tim Patterson, professor in the department of Earth Sciences atCarleton University in Ottawa, recently converted from a believer in man-made climatechange to a skeptic. Patterson noted that the notion of a "consensus" of scientists alignedwith the UN IPCC or former Vice President Al Gore is false. "I was at the GeologicalSociety of America meeting in Philadelphia in the fall and I would say that people withmy opinion were probably in the majority."This new committee report, a first of its kind, comes after the UN IPCC chairmanRajendra Pachauri implied that there were only “about a dozen" skeptical scientists left inthe world. (LINK) Former Vice President Gore has claimed that scientists skeptical of climate change are akin to "flat Earth society members" and similar in number to thosewho "believe the moon landing was actually staged in a movie lot in Arizona." (LINK) &(LINK)The distinguished scientists featured in this new report are experts in diverse fields,including: climatology; geology; biology; glaciology; biogeography; meteorology;oceanography; economics; chemistry; mathematics; environmental sciences; engineering;physics and paleoclimatology. Some of those profiled have won Nobel Prizes for theiroutstanding contribution to their field of expertise and many shared a portion of the UNIPCC Nobel Peace Prize with Vice President Gore.Additionally, these scientists hail from prestigious institutions worldwide, including:Harvard University; NASA; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR); Massachusetts Institute of Technology; the UN IPCC; the Danish National Space Center; U.S. Department of Energy; Princeton University; the Environmental Protection Agency; University of Pennsylvania; Hebrew University of Jerusalem; the International Arctic Research Centre;the Pasteur Institute in Paris; the Belgian Weather Institute; Royal NetherlandsMeteorological Institute; the University of Helsinki; the National Academy of Sciencesof the U.S., France, and Russia; the University of Pretoria; University of Notre Dame;Stockholm University; University of Melbourne; Columbia University; the WorldFederation of Scientists; and the University of London.The voices of many of these hundreds of scientists serve as a direct challenge to the oftenmedia-hyped "consensus" that the debate is "settled."A May 2007 Senate report detailed scientists who had recently converted from believersin man-made global warming to skepticism.
