G: (I could, for example, point out that half the experts in that Leipzig declaration are noted opponents of the Greenhouse theory; some, like Fred Singer, are funded directly by oil companies (It's also worth noting that Singer's major objection to the greenhouse effect (satellite data) was found to be invalid due to his inadequate
allowance for experimental error (the satellite's position was misread, leading to inaccurate data)). It's as if all the existing opponents of the greenhouse theory met up to sign a piece of paper; it provides a nice long list of impressive names, but doesn't actually reflect the true consensus, as the sample of scientists is skewed to begin with.
Qx: That’s a great point you brought up here.I did a name search for the people mentioned in that website. Dr. Fred Seitz and S. Fred Singer may need a bit more of a look-see than previously thought.By looking into the this website’s search engine both of their names pop up.
