Global warming petition project
The Global warming petition project is a petition, signed by over 31,000 American scientists, urging the United States government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December 1997 and any other similar proposals. The signatories, who include over 9,000 with PhDs, assert that there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the forseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate.
According to the Pew Research Center, in terms of the American public:
|“||Overall, many people hold skeptical views of climate scientists and GM food scientists; a larger share express trust in medical scientists, but there, too, many express what survey analysts call a “soft” positive rather than a strongly positive view.||”|
