Subject: Global Warming
- Kyoto Treaty
Be advised Dr. Authur B. Robinson and others have issued a report on the Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide. The report states that increases of atmospheric carbon dioxide in the 20th century "have produced no deleterious effects upon global weather, climate, or temperature." This scientific statement report and a petition was delivered to scientist around the world covered with a letter by Dr. Federick Seitz, past president of the National Academy of Sciences and president emeritus of the Rockefeller University. To date, more than 15,000 science colleagues have fixed their names to the petition, thereby lending their reputations to the conclusion presented in the statement.
This report and statement is directly opposed to the stated consensus reached at Kyoto, Japan, United Nations meeting, December 1997. The 15,000 scientist that have signed the petition represent a four times greater number than any one group statement or conclusion supporting the Kyoto decision. Based on these numbers and the unrefuted scientific facts and conclusions in Dr. Robinson's report, the consensus is changed to reflect Dr. Robinson's conclusions, "Predictions of harmful climatic effects due to future increases in minor greenhouse gases like CO2 are in error and do not conform to current experimental knowledge."
Since the consensus has changed to reflect Dr. Robinson's scientific statement you are urged to use due care when evaluating issues involving the Kyoto conference and global warming. The revelation of this report must be included in any debate, discussion, conclusion or story involving these matters. Note that to date, no refutation of the report's scientific facts and conclusions have been made. You would be advised to review Dr. Robinson's statement and report.
