Once again, as usual, responders to my letter about climate and data misinformation come back with the typical slurs against both individuals and organizations that are trying to educate the populace. Both responses appeared in the DCI on Oct. 28.
The Petition Project has nothing to do with hiding the facts or using tactics as stated in the tobacco reference. In fact, the entire effort was initiated by a few scientists and physical chemists who conduct work at several American scientific institutions. Efforts to "make the papers look like official papers from the National Academy of Sciences" is absurd. Basically this project was conceived under the direction of Dr. Arthur Robinson, co-founder of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine. The other co-founder of this institute was Dr. Linus Pauling, Nobel Prize recipient for his work with Vitamin C. This project was indeed designed to give support in opposition to the infamous Kyoto Protocol. Apparently there are still many that do not understand the importance of defeating this protocol!
The cover pages to the Petition Project outline the reasons for the effort.
The slurs against the George C. Marshal Institute are also absurd. I know you can get such information online, most of it produced by firms like Greenpeace. That does not hold credibility and some of the comments like the defamation of the character of Dr. Jay Lehr border on libel.
Of course if people wish to "just be on the safe side" and go with green energy that is their choice.
They will then receive electric power on an intermittent basis and pay several times the present rate.
The obvious deception of "97 percent of scientists agree that climate change is real" should be obvious. This is another scam statement. What scientists? When were they polled? What questions were asked? There have been many articles that show this was a complete fabrication.
If readers want to get truthful information, they have to devote effort and read topics generated by top scientists not the deception produced by the media and the political process which only exemplifies "follow the money."
Here are a few sources of factual information: "The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science" by Tim Ball, PhD, "The Wind Farm Scam" by John Etherington, "Climate: The Counter Consensus" by Professor Robert M. Carter, PhD. Brian Sussman, a veteran meteorologist exposes the global warming scam in a very sobering book entitled "Climategate." There are many other excellent sources of such information that I hope the reader will read and get an understanding of the truth.
