Scientists who have publicly disagreed with anthropogenic global warming alarmism and the IPCC: 1. Judith Curry, Chair: School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the GA Inst. of Technology, co-editor of Encyclopedia of Atmospheric Sciences (6 vols., 2002). IPCC insiders have acted like schoolyard bullies will tolerate no dissent and seek to trample and discredit anyone who challenges the IPCC At some point, I decided that I could no longer in good faith support the IPCC and its assessments. 2. Ivar Giaever, physics, Rensselaer (Nobel winner); American Physical Society Fellow (1/2 of 1% of members) temperature has changed from ~288.0 K to ~288.8 K in 150 years, which (if true) means to me … that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this warming period temperature has changed from ~288.0 K to ~288.8 K in 150 years, which (if true) means to me … that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this warming period
3. Harold Lewis, physics, UC Santa Barbara Also APS Fellow: Said that global warming is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist 4. Robert B. Laughlin, physics, Stanford (Nobel winner) 5. Norman Borlaug, plant geneticist, Texas A & M, Nobel winner 6. William Happer, physics, Princeton 7. Antonio Zichichi, president of World Federation of Scientists
8. Roy W. Spencer, meteorologist, U. Alabama-Huntsville, formerly Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA U.S. Science Team leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASAs Aqua satellite. Author of The Great Global Warming Blunder (2010). 9. Ian Plimer, professor in School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Univ. of Adelaide, Australia, 2X winner of Eureka Prize, Australias highest scientific honor 10. Richard Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, MIT: long-time critic of AGW, with a lifetime of seminal contributions to atmospheric science 11. Fred Singer, professor emeritus of environmental sciences at the University of Virginia
12. www.petitionproject.org is list of 31,487 American signers with university degrees in science (including 9,029 Ph.D.s). There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earths atmosphere and disruption of the Earths climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. (James 3:17)

Václav Klaus, president of the Czech Republic (Freedom, Not Climate, At Risk, Financial Times.com. (June 13, 2007). in 2007) global warming hysteria has become a prime example of the truth versus propaganda problem.global warming hysteria has become a prime example of the truth versus propaganda problem. As someone who lived under communism for most of his life, I feel obliged to say that I see the biggest threat to freedom, democracy, the market economy and prosperity now in ambitious environmentalism, not in communism. This ideology wants to replace the free and spontaneous evolution of mankind by a sort of central (now global) planning. The environmentalists ask for immediate political action because they do not believe in the long-term positive impact of economic growth and ignore both the technological progress that future generations will undoubtedly enjoy, and the proven fact that the higher the wealth of society, the higher is the quality of the environment. They are Malthusian pessimists

O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain; For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! America! America! God shed His grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea. O beautiful for pilgrim feet Whose stern impassion'd stress A thoroughfare for freedom beat Across the wilderness America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw, Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law.
O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife, Who more than self their country loved, And mercy more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine, Till all success be nobleness, And every gain divine. O beautiful for patriot dream That sees beyond the years Thine alabaster cities gleam, Undimmed by human tears! America! America! God mend thine every flaw, Confirm thy soul in self control, Thy liberty in law.
Crown him with many crowns, the Lamb upon his throne, Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own. Awake, my soul, and sing of him who died for thee, and hail him as thy matchless King through all eternity. Crown him the Lord of life, who triumphed o'er the grave, and rose victorious in the strife for those he came to save. His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high, who died, eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die.
Crown him the Lord of peace, whose power a scepter sways from pole to pole, that wars may cease, and all be prayer and praise. His reign shall know no end, and round his pierced feet fair flowers of paradise extend their fragrance ever sweet. Crown him the Lord of love; behold his hands and side, those wounds, yet visible above, in beauty glorified. All hail, Redeemer, hail! For thou hast died for me; thy praise and glory shall not fail throughout eternity. Text: Matthew Bridges, 1800-1894, and Godfrey Thring, 1823-1903 Music: George J. Elvey, 1816-1893
