POZNAN, Poland, December 18, 2008 – The UN global warming conference which concluded Friday in Poland faced a serious challenge from over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe who criticized the climate claims made by the UN IPCC and former Vice President Al Gore.  A newly updated U.S. Senate Minority Report was released last week featuring the dissenting voices of over 650 international scientists, many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN.
  The report has added about 250 scientists (and growing) in 2008 to the over 400 scientists who spoke out in 2007. The over 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.
  The U.S. Senate report is the latest evidence of the growing groundswell of scientific opposition rising to challenge the UN and Gore. Scientific meetings are now being dominated by a growing number of skeptical scientists. The prestigious International Geological Congress, dubbed the geologists’ equivalent of the Olympic Games, was held in Norway in August 2008 and prominently featured the voices and views of scientists skeptical of man-made global warming fears.
  Pro-life advocates have long mistrusted the Kyoto protocol and similar climate schemes as they are usually tied to population control, which could be implemented with the pressure coming from the alarmist claims Kyoto advocates have made in the past.
  The report quotes Ivar Giaever, a Nobel Prize Winner for Physics, saying: “I am a skeptic … Global warming has become a new religion.”
  UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist said that warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history … When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.”
  Geologist Georgia D. Brown, an instructor of Geology & Oceanography at College of Lake County in Illinois, who co-authored a 1993 peer-reviewed study on the CO2 content in the magma from Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii in the prestigious journal American Mineralogist, rejected climate fears and supported the notion of a coming global cool down. “I talk to my students about this topic every semester, not just when we are covering glacial geology, but at different points throughout the term. I want them to know that they shouldn’t take every alarmist claim at face value,” Brown wrote on December 13, 2006. “Fear is a means of controlling a population, and since the cold war has ended, the government needed new fuel for its control fire,” Brown wrote.
