The Center For Inquiry has revealed some vital information about the scientific credentials of the almost 700 individuals sited in the U.S. Senate Minority Report, concerning climate change.

After assessing 687 individuals named as “dissenting scientists” in the January 2009 version of the United States Senate Minority Report, the Center for Inquiry’s Credibility Project found that:

  • Slightly fewer than 10 percent could be identified as climate scientists.
  • Approximately 15 percent published in the recognizable refereed literature on subjects related to climate science.
  • Approximately 80 percent clearly had no refereed publication record on climate science at all.
  • Approximately 4 percent appeared to favor the current IPCC-2007 consensus and should not have been on the list.

Further examination of the backgrounds of these individuals revealed that a significant number were identified as meteorologists, and some of these people were employed to report the weather.

I remain opened minded about climate change. However, our government must use the best “peer reviewed” scientific research available. We have the Scientific Method for a reason.

A couple years ago, I came across the below video which arguments are inescapable.
