Funny isnt it , all the links the deniers put up ate mis truths , outright falsehoods ( like the Poznan link) when then challenged they either denigrate the previous poster or simply post further nonsense , mostly derived from crackpot websites.

Its reminds me of the smoking debate in the 80 s. now long over.

Not sure what your source is . But google put me back to your Flint conservative.

I also went to the Conference web site - nothing.

So I am calling bull doo doo on this one.
Sigh. Perhaps it is a conspiracy to make you look like a dope, extending all the way to the U.S. Senate?

Hey, wait a minute, Imhofe is a REPUBLICAN! (saved you the time to put forth the usual ad hominem fallacy by doing it for you....)

Oooo, you posted your non sequitor just a minute too early, since a wealth of links is contained to the Poznan conference in the U.S. Senate report above....Sorry about that Dave.

But let me help you out, so you can avoid further embarassment:

Let me google that for you

It's a lie it didnt happen , the senate minority report also never claimed that 650 scientists at Poznan all stood up etc etc

Its a lie. Simple and plain

If you say so...

U. S. Senate Minority Report:
More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims Scientists Continue to Debunk “Consensus” in 2008

INTRODUCTION:

Over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe challenged man-made global warming claims made by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore

Ah for gods sake that claimed 650 stood up never happened plain and simple. Give me a credible link of a report on the 2008 conference that mentions it.


Fox isn't a news channel.

Re: Climate Change

One problem is that the deniers keep referring to outdated studies and opinions. There certainly was substantial disagreement in the scientific community in 2008 but that's not true in 2013.

For example, in July 2012, Robert Mueller an outspoken "skeptic" who is funded by the Koch petroleum brothers admitted he was wrong.

“Three years ago I identified problems in previous climate studies that, in my mind, threw doubt on the very existence of global warming. Last year, following an intensive research effort involving a dozen scientists, I concluded that global warming was real and that the prior estimates of the rate of warming were correct. I’m now going a step further: Humans are almost entirely the cause.”


Prominent climate change denier now admits he was wrong (+video) - CSMonitor.com

I also think the 650 scientists standing up in 2008 is a fabrication. But you couldn't even make that up in 2013. If a guy funded by oil money reaches this conclusion........

Senator:there are exactly 123 card holding communist in the United States Senate.. another reporter: how many communist did you say were card holding communist in the senate sir?.. Senator : there are approx. 150 card toting communist in the US senate(all of this in a 2 minute interview)

I'm caught between laughing and sad.
Don't all you Boobtube watchers ever turn it off long enough to think? Divide and conquer. Why get mad about things important to you when you can be mad at what you are told to be.

So are you happy with a self selecting 1077 professional engineers and geoscientists from the oil industry answering an online and magazine questionnaire can be seen as a balanced overview of the views of the worlds climate scientists?


It might be worth broadening your research a little.
