Disinformation on Climate Change has been a characteristic of several media outlets and activist groups.
In the recent past a petition was organized by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oregon_Petition ) to reject the findings of Climate Science, the IPCC reports and other related conclusions. The petition expresses Doubt in the truth of Climate Change. It was signed by over thirty thousand “scientists” and addressed to the United States Government. The thirty thousand included engineers, physicians and other technically trained individuals including an astronaut - but few to none were climate scientists. People are entitled to their opinion, but not qualified to judge the state of Climate Science unless they are engaged in the field.
