Climate skeptics 2002 letter to Canadian PM Jean Chretien
posted by Jim Prall, Toronto, Canada
I downloaded this list of signers from the 2002 open letter '02.11.25-letter%20to%20chretien%20from%20scientists.html' to Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien from 30 scientists, which had been hosted on www.nrsp.com. That site is currently unresponsive (2009-09-29 - it returns a blank green page), and I can't locate a copy of the original declaration HTML file on www.archive.org (usually a lifesaver when links get broken).
For the record, I'm posting this text, consisting of the names and affiliations of the signers of the letter. Unfortunately the text of the letter is not preserved, but the upshot of it was that Canada should not ratify the Kyoto Accord or take policy action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and that human influence on climate remains unproven.
These signers are noted on my List of climate authors and signers of climate declarations using the tag CA02.
