Scientists Against Kyoto

Found on LGF, from Canadian Free Press:
The numbers of scientists staggered me--17,100 basic and applied American scientists, two thirds with advanced degrees, are against the Kyoto Agreement. The Heidelberg Appeal--which states that there is no scientific evidence for man-made global warming, has been signed by over 4,000 scientists from around the world since the petition’s inception. I strongly questioned these high numbers, since I’ve had benefit of the Canadian government’s public relations machine on this issue. Dr. Leahey has since sent documentation to back his figures up.

All those scientists were in total agreement: the Kyoto Protocol was complete fiction.

The scientists are so committed to fighting the Kyoto Accord and its misrepresentation of the truth, that they produced a 27-minute documentary and paid for its production with their own money.
But would it see the light of day? Not if its conclusions runs counter to the Canadian government's wishes:
I met with four of the scientists. They showed me the piece. The information held in this 27-minutes should be required viewing for all Canadians. Yet here we have the national broadcasters saying "No"--refusing to broadcast scientific evidence of an important national issue.
Professor Leahey and 56 Canadian scientists have run up against a system meant to protect the government. The rules of Telefilm and the Canadian Television Fund are effective tools to ensure that nobody uses taxpayers’ money to contradict the government’s message.

In fact, the scientists--armed with the truth--are up against government propaganda and censorship.
As an American scientist myself, I concur with the Heidelberg Appeal.
