Has anybody noticed, that in the list of "scientists", not one of them is a true climatologist? Check out the list! "Claude Allegre, former director of the Institute for the Study of the Earth, University of Paris; J. Scott Armstrong, cofounder of the Journal of Forecasting and the International Journal of Forecasting; Jan Breslow, head of the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism, Rockefeller University; Roger Cohen, fellow, American Physical Society; Edward David, member, National Academy of Engineering and National Academy of Sciences; William Happer, professor of physics, Princeton; Michael Kelly, professor of technology, University of Cambridge, U.K.; William Kininmonth, former head of climate research at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology; Richard Lindzen, professor of atmospheric sciences, MIT; James McGrath, professor of chemistry, Virginia Technical University; Rodney Nichols, former president and CEO of the New York Academy of Sciences; Burt Rutan, aerospace engineer, designer of Voyager and SpaceShipOne; Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut and former U.S. senator; Nir Shaviv, professor of astrophysics, Hebrew University, Jerusalem; Henk Tennekes, former director, Royal Dutch Meteorological Service; Antonio Zichichi, president of the World Federation of Scientists, Geneva." There is a chemist, a couple of engineers, a couple of frauds, a physicists and other specialties that have no relation to climatology. If 16 climatologists had signed this bogus opinion piece I might have believed them.

It's sad, really. These pathetic people don't realize that they have been bathed in electromagnetic radiation all of their lives and they can't hide from it. I suppose a Faraday cage or a deep mine or a cavern might help a little, but it won't matter if they use or are visited by someone with any kind of electronic device.
