Petition Project has been thoroughly discredited

Print Article

Lawrence Blanchardís letter (Daily Bee, Aug. 28, 2018) denies the concept of anthropogenic global warming by appealing to The Petition Project. So I looked the project up and found it thoroughly discredited, with the study by Snopes being perhaps the most useful synopsis:

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/30000-scientists-reject-climate-change/

As an aside, Iíll quote Andrew Nikiforukís address to his fellows at a recent protest against the Canadian governmentís purchase of the Trans Mountain Pipeline, ďPoliticians who think they can solve the climate change crisis by expanding hydrocarbon production have become terrorists in our communities, anarchists in our oceans and arsonists in our forests.Ē Andrew Nikiforuk is an award-winning journalist who has been writing about the energy industry for two decades.

My own view of the honest and well-meaning members of the general public who disbelieve in anthropogenic global warming is that they are dupes.
