That list of 650 disenting international scientists is hilarious. It includes a TV weatherman whose qualification is that he holds a Certificate in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. And it also includes Ray Kurzweil, whose background is in computing and holds a ** in computer science. But the interesting thing is that Ray Kurzweil believes that global warming is occurring, so why on earth is he on the list? This list doesn't appear to be an exercise in honesty.
