Last year RealClimate reported that there had been another mass mailing to get more signatures on the notorious Oregon Petition. They are now announcing that they’ve increased the number of signatures from 19,000 to 31,000. The original objections to the Oregon Petition still apply — most of the signers do not have PhDs and are not practising scientists. Just 40 of the signers claim to be climatologists, and since they don’t tell you their names, it’s impossible to check whether they are, in fact, climatologists.
Bigcitylib decided to test their quality control by signing using a fake name and fake qualifications.
He’s on the list.
