A more up to date debunking of the Oregon Petition is available here:

 

What if the Oregon Petition names were real?


This fraud is the source of the Denier myth that (variously) 17,000, 30,000, 60,000 etc "scientists have

The Oregon Petition is a project by Arthur B. Robinson head of the tiny, industry funded so-called Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine.

 

It is an updated version of his notoriously fraudulent earlier attempts , the most recent being the 1998 Oregon Petition.

 

It's even been debunked at the Skeptics Society (the irony) "Misleading by Petition Just What is the Consensus on Global Warming?

 

For a thorough debunking of the alleged science accompanying the Petition

 

Most of the names (of those that are legitimate, which aren't many) are from over a decade ago, in some cases almost twice that age - like there's been no updates in the science recently?

 

Quote from National Academy of Sciences

"The petition was so misleading that the National Academy issued a news release stating that:

The petition project was a deliberate attempt to mislead scientists and to rally them in an attempt to undermine support for the Kyoto Protocol. The petition was not based on a review of the science of global climate change, nor were its signers experts in the field of climate science." Source

 

Some of the alleged signatories are actually dead.

 

Of tobacco apologist Frederick Seitz see (enough said)

 

Oh yeah, here's another example of Denier math (19=500) when counting "skeptics"

And on and on; it's a joke. A sad pathetic joke that is a waste of everyone's time.
