Scientists petition UN

They say the "UN climate conference taking the World in entirely the wrong direction." The list of signatories, here, includes some well-known scientists like Freeman Dyson of the Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton, N.J., and many other physicists, geophysicists, and climatologists. They write that "the current UN approach of CO2 reduction is likely to increase human
suffering from future climate change rather than to decrease it." They also point out that the UN's IPCC summaries and press-releases are written by a very small group under the control of politicians. Therefore "The summaries therefore cannot properly be represented as a consensus view among experts."
