How many thousand make a "consensus"?

The global warming models are falling into disrepute, global temperatures still flatly refuse to climb, and now the "science is settled" argument is about to look even more unsettled:

The National Press Club in Washington will today release the names of as many as 32,000 American Scientists who reject not only Kyoto-style greenhouse gas limits, but the very premise of manmade global warming itself. [Story: American Thinker]

So what's left of the warmist argument?  Why the need to shackle our producers?  And what's the collective noun for 32,000 scientists? 

A 'consensus'?


  1. Great link PC. The momentum is shifting.

  2. Hehe. I've signed this one twice, once under my own name and qualifications (BA Hons in Architecture) and once under an alter-ego, Buford J. McWhirter, who is an MSc in Climate Science from Eketahuna University.

    I encourage anyone else interested in signing to do so here:


    The rigour of their fact-checking is unparalleled, believe me. This is one of the most convincing and important documents of scientific agreement ever seen. Ever. Really.




1. Commenters are welcome and invited.
2. All comments are moderated. Off-topic grandstanding, spam, and gibberish will be ignored. Tu quoque will be moderated.
3. Read the post before you comment. Challenge facts, but don't simply ignore them.
4. Use a name. If it's important enough to say, it's important enough to put a name to.
5. Above all: Act with honour. Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
