Scientists urge Senate action on global warming

There is just too much money on the table for these scientists and strangely economists to dispense with the alarmism and get back to doing proper science. The warmists are using friendly media to promote the same old fear mongering that got them into trouble in the first place. Notice that they do not give any specifics that can be measured and checked by people that can keep them honest. We have entered a pure public relations phase in this battle. These scientists and their left leaning economists are selling a general calamity with no specific effects. I don’t think the majority of tax paying citizens is going to fall for this tactic again.
In a move to shore up credibility for climate change science, American scientists and economists are asking the Senate to enact immediate legislation to reduce emissions related to global warming.

Two thousand US economists and climate scientists, including eight Nobel laureates, are sending a letter Thursday to the Senate urging lawmakers to require immediate nationwide cuts in greenhouse-gas emissions tied to global warming.
Emerging from a wintertime blizzard of bad press, US and international climate scientists are in damage-control mode, holding press conferences, firing off press releases, and affirming that global warming is quite real and that climate change science is up to snuff.
Despite the "climate-gate" hacked e-mail scandal and embarrassing mistakes in previous scientific reports, the bulk of research shows climate change is incontrovertible, they say.
"We call on our nation’s leaders to swiftly establish and implement policies to bring about deep reductions in heat-trapping emissions," the scientists write in the letter. "The strength of the science on climate change compels us to warn the nation about the growing risk of irreversible consequences as global average temperatures continue to increase." Read more.
