    Perhaps we could approach it this way.
    Does anyone have the list so we can examine it and determine if the folk in n the list are scientists or not.

    Sure. It's here:

    https://oup.silverchair-cdn.com/oup...5uxIXR1KUQ__&Key-Pair-Id=APKAIE5G5CRDK6RD3PGA

    To save you time, the climate denial site WattsUpWithThat has already scanned it and found one fake name - "Mickey Mouse." It has since been removed.

    soo... whatsupmyassgiantpenisohnoitsnot(itsatinypenisositdoesntcountNOHomo!) are russian hackers ...
    i am guessing they would likely be employed by the chinese government to distribute information to their loyal american citizens...(tounge n cheek way of saying they are American traitors & disrupting the health of the American people)

    have they got any proof that nuclear weapons are faked like climate change ?
    im guessing that should be their next topic

    can you prove that nuclear weapons have not critically disrupted the earths magnetic field and so its going to fail in 20 years and the earth will be cooked with radiation & billions will be fried alive ?

    ... or does it all hinge on obama being a Muslim spy terrorist trying to turn all American christians gay ?

    Thanks for that.

    I looked it over and think there are certainly a few scientists on the list and certainly a few who are not scientists.

    I did find one climate scientist so that was encouraging.

    Anyways the good thing is we now have a list so folk who feel inclined can go thru and consider if the claim that the list is of scientists is a reasonable description.

    Thanks again.

    That is an odd response.
    I was hoping to find a response that would save me looking into the claim.
    I am guessing that you are enjoying guessing too much to stop.
    You have to be careful when trying to reduce claims to ridiculous that you don't get ridiculous all over the place I guess.

    What do you guess about the list?

    ...

    while some great leaders work as hard as they can with their hands tied by big industry & currency value protection principals...
    quantitative easing etc...

    there seems to be a clear and easy to see majority whom are at the very least doing nothing and at the most burning down forrests.

    how many businesses support an economic long term sustainable model that services a declining population ?

    how many boom n bust extremists are willing to sacrifice other people, towns, communitys, citys and countrys to service their greed is good propaganda boom n bust ideology ?

    why has the term "sustainability" lost all current usage ?

    part of the big issue with the dumb sheople is that they wont research the facts presented
    so the half truth lies that are sold by the climate change propaganda professionals sells very well.

    it also services a certain fringe tin foil hat extremist group who can be used as a troll army to attack online web sites people and university's and businesses.

    my example was explicit to prove they cant not prove it without proving they are fakes and faking science to lie and con people.
    (i thought it was quite a good example)

    i have not looked at the list

    i may do.
    i will want to look at it properly if i do.
    there is no shortage of people with a degree in a scientific field or faked degree or have studied and then listed themselves as a expert who are climate change denier alt-right propaganda people thinking they can sing the alt-right party song and be in the line to get free corporate welfare contract hand outs.

    they are the same ass kissers who puffed out the ranks of the ufo debunker sect
    pay per play
    now they are trying to play both sides of the ufo debunker vs ufo beleiver as they sell wholesale to a larger click bait audience.

    like the old traveling snake oil sales people of the 1800's
    morals be damned its about making money any way you can.

    Hmm. I found scientists and PhD students (scientists in training.) Many of the scientists are in fields outside climate change (like sociology) but the original article never claimed they were all climate change scientists.

    Well I have printed out the list and I am going thru it making notes and googling each person and will be sending them emails to get details of their degrees and write a book about my findings...shall I set a copy aside for you...after lunch.

    The article claimed scientists for sure I think we can agree upon that.

    Personally if I were running their show I would have gone for quality not quantity and simply listed scientists working in climate science and avoid the obvious critism.

    By looking at the title along side the name.
    It's easy. Look at a name and move your eyes to the right and you get their job description. I couldn't see any reference to degrees but I will look again. That would be nice and expected...just a little BS (Bachelor of Science) for example rather than say manager or the area they work in...and if it is a student perhaps their field.
    But look I don't want to spoil it for you read thru the list and please tell me your impression and if you think the claim of 11000 scientists has been met now that we have got Mickey out of the way.

    And always looking for another way to remain neutral and be confident that we are not suffering bias. . Let's do this . ..
    Let's imagine we have a similar letter from the other side effectively claiming the opposite and they attract the very same list claiming it is a list of scientists...each of us can then ask ourselves how we would respond if our opponents effectively did the same.

    I don't think they "went" for anything. They sent out a letter to scientists (and PhD students) and said "sign if you agree with this."

    Maybe we are talking about different things.. The way I thought it went was the web site refered to earlier put up an invitation for people to put their names up..which was a receipt for disaster if not srutinized ..hence a the Mickey Mouse problem.
    If they solicited individuals as you suggest all I can say is that I did not realise that was done. The site suggests it happened the way I thought and if you look there is an indication that they plan another letter for ordinary folk.
    Have you looked at the site?
    If you do you will notice where my impression was formed.
    Thanks for your interest I always enjoy your input.

    It's not an allegation. More than 11,000 scientists from 152 countries did sign up to the statement that we are facing an emergency to support that claim.

    Why do you think this is a lie?

    There is a consensus among climate change scientists [1], just as there is consensus within the scientific community (which the 11,000 signatures indicates).. In other words, there is scientific consensus about climate change in general.[2]

    Alex, the manner in which you conduct yourself, your repeated whining about how people are more worried about climate change than say fires or violence against women, gives the impression that you are a denialist.

    Not to mention the only people going on about this current study and the 11,000+ scientists who signed a statement agreeing that we are in an emergency when it comes to our climate are denialists...

    Something something about quacking like a duck, looking like a duck, walking like a duck.. it will usually be a duck... applies here..

    And I linked you the list.

    Why do you keep demanding it?

    I also told you how you can access the "list" if you are unable to click on the pdf file that I also linked in my previous post.

    You seem to be complaining about not being to see the "list", than actually seeing that there are 11,000 scientists who put their name to support the statement that we are in a climate change emergency. By the way, it took me 25 seconds to find "the list".

    Will you though?

    Because two posts from the one I am responding to, you said:

    So, I linked you the list, you said thanks, you'll check them out, then you ask if anyone has the list so you can examine the 11,000 names to determine if they are scientists or not..

    Given you were unable to google and find "the list", which took me 25 seconds to find from the study itself, I frankly question your ability to determine if those 11,000 people are scientists or not.

    In other words, you seem to be going above and beyond what a normal person would do, because you are so intent to prove it's all a lie:

    You care so much about the environment that you printed off 319 pages...

    While I hope this is a joke (unfunny), the fact that your intent is to go through 319 pages to see who you think is a scientist or not - be it online or not - and even googling some names - is kind of weird.. And stalkerish..

    The only people criticising are climate change denialists..

    Funny that, huh?

    They haven't and most probably wont... why is that do you think?
    Why aren't there scientsts of repute standing up and saying AGW is bs?

    Have you looked at the list?
    I agree but the list was in question not the letter...that is a fact evidence by its withdrawal and I think rejection someplace...I don't r call.
    It was never about a scientific consensus Bells it was about whether or not they had 11,000 scientists and even now with what I presume is a revised list I don't if that claim is valid but at least and they got rid of Mickey Mouse.
    The original proposition was that it was a lie, and not only by me, not that that is relevant...I could see what was happening..and when I started the thread I wasn't thinking that so much.
    But like everything that I point to I am jumped on it seems..do you folk rev me up to see me go into action???
    I can see that Bells but really if folk read what I say I don't see how they could form that impression.. I am probably more left than anyone here really.
    And honestly if you read what I say not answer to a straw man built during a kneejerk you would not have a problem.
    The sites you linked did not show a list..maybe I did something wrong. Billvons link worked and that was the first I saw of the list..
    Not after I had it on my screen.
    Well that is interesting because it seemed there was a period where no one could get the list..I think that shows in the discussions herein...
    I have started looking and frankly not really impressed. Have you seen the list?
    And Billvons provided the list ..read the posts it is pretty clear as to the history.
    All I found was the site on both attempts...And think about it...why would I still ask for a list of it was before me..I will do this when I get home..I will follow your links again..first on my phone and then via my lappy and report back if the list now appears..but I assure you the first time I saw the list was when I followed Billvons link...it came as a PDF...so I can browse no problems.
    Maybe I can cut and paste a section to show how folk have described their job or qualifications.
    It is rather easy to read the list once one has it...are you trying to say that the list has been readily available over the course of this thread??? And perhaps notice the replies to my requests if anyone could get the list.
    You are reving me up right???
    I don't mind ...hits for the site maybe...well I want to contribute, the site gives me something and I want to give back.
    You are reving me up..you must know how I hate meaningless sayings that generalise and leave folk babbling rather than thinking...
    I am me..not a duck..maybe crackers indeed..but please don't put me in a box I find it insulting which causes me to worry about the person putting out the insults...
    I think that is settled...cause I did not have it until Billvons link paid out.
    I don't have to prove a thing..the list is now available for purusal...all one has to do is read a name and look and see how that person describes themselves.
    I don't know if I should tell you ...try this read my post and see if you can work it out...and I am not asking for you to find it funny or not but it would be satisfying for you to notice I was at least trying to be funny.
    I think it's funny that someone would waste time to print it out...but maybe I should so I can go thru and research each and every name to prove my point..nah I really don't care.
    I put things out there are folk come out to fight a strawman..now that is funny.
    I don't get it???
    But please don't try to explain it..nothing worse than having to explain a joke.

    Anyways seeing everyone is so interested let's make another list..using titles only from the 11000 ...putting down titles that don't sound science...or another list of people listing the actual qualifications.

    Most enjoyable, it is so refreshing to chat with someone with a decent mind who can dish it out ... You see in my real world folk don't engage at all...these chats relieve my lonliness.
    Thank you..sincerely.
    Alex
