Many [scientists] are now searching for a way to back out quietly (from promoting warming fears), without having their professional careers ruined.

"Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history...When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.”

Stop it! These people are not real scientists! Iwog and Dan are.

Thanks! I needed the help.
Can't see into the future but something will happen.

Is this a repost from 10 years ago ? Or seven years ago ?

I guess the liberal authoritarians really clamped down on this to prevent the word from spreading. That is considering this bullshit didn't get any traction in the academic world after it came out back in 2010 or 2011.

Actually I remember when this came out, and it turned out that most of the people on the list were not scientists
(those few quotes may have been but that's a very small number), they were engineers or people with some limited science beckground, that were republicans or for other reasons sided with skeptical side of the argument.

Here we are seven years later with oceans warmer, with higher average temperatures and the arctic ice disappearing faster than many models predicted. If we wait for 100% proof and total scientific agreement and total understanding of the role of CO2's role in global warming with 100% perfectly accurate models it might be too late.

This post is appropriate for influencing opinions in the post truth, "whatever you want to be true - and whatever you imagine to be true" Trumpian period we're in right now.

Alarmist propaganda.

If so much ice is melting why are the sea levels not rising faster?

Where is the alleged list of scientists? If there are 1000 then there are almost more scientists than steemit users.

Arctic ice is in the water already. Melting arctic ice doesn't change the sea level. Only melting ice over land changes the sea levels. Didn't you ever use ice in a drink?

"The petition was created by individuals and groups with political motivations, was distributed using misleading tactics, is presented with almost no accountability regarding the authenticity of its signatures, and asks only that you have received an undergraduate degree in any science to sign.".

They only let scientists sign it.

I believe that I was one of the 30K who signed it around 1999 (I signed a petition to that effect at the time). At the time, I believed that conclusions going around were overstated. There was no statement that signing it meant that you thought we should not prepare or do nothing. It just meant that you thought that AGW was not yet proven. Clearly, my thoughts have evolved due mostly to new evidence.
