For a thorough fisking of this "report" see here: or http://

Since Janice was interested in who were the UCS scientists, here's
the research history for the contributors of this report. Note to
Randy: cross-referencing this to Rep. Rohrabacher's list of 18(!)
DocumentID=48386, I found many in this group heavily represented.
Rep. Rohrabacher does have another list of atmospheric -- note, not
climate -- scientists on his web site,
ConstituentServices/globalwarming.htm, but it dates from 1992.

It's people like these that Dana Rohrabacher trusts. What about Susan
Solomon whom he upbraided?
