On Monday, May 19th at 10:00 am, at the National Press Club, Dr. Arthur Robinson of The Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine will announce that more than 31,000 scientists have signed a petition rejecting claims of human-caused global warming.
The purpose of OISM’s Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of “settled science” and an overwhelming “consensus” in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming and consequent climate damage is wrong. No such consensus or settled science exists.

As indicated by the petition text and signatory list, a very large number of American scientists reject this hypothesis.
It is evident that 31,072 Americans with university degrees in science – including 9,021 PhDs, are not “a few.” Moreover, from the clear and strong petition statement that they have signed, it is evident that these 31,072 American scientists are not “skeptics.”
