A Letter to Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe

Dear Sir,

On September 25, 2006, in a speech to the U.S. Senate, you said this:

On July 24, 2006, the Los Angeles Times featured an op-ed by Naomi Oreskes, a social scientist at the University of California San Diego and the author of a 2004 Science magazine study. Oreskes insisted that a review of 928 scientific papers showed there was 100% consensus that global warming was not caused by natural climate variations. This study was also featured in former Vice President Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

However, the analysis in Science excluded nearly 11,000 studies (more than 90% of the papers dealing with global warming), according to a critique by British social scientist Benny Peiser.

Make ClimateScienceWatch.Org Required Reading

If you haven't already visited - and bookmarked - www.ClimateScienceWatch.org, you should rush on over. The site is run by Rick Piltz (hear a podcast recorded at the Society of Environmental Journalists [SEJ] conference) and it keeps a sharp eye for what Washington is doing (or not doing) with the information that is generated by U.S. scientists.

A great example is Piltz's post on the new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website, which Piltz says, “reveals limitations that point to continuing political interference.”
