Not everyone agrees on global warming

Interestingly enough to me re climate change, I just received a copy of an ad in the Wall Street Journal paid for by the CATO Institute. Over 100 scientist from countries all over the world write in response to President Obama's statement about global warming. The scientists state that:

"With all due respect Mr. President, that is not true. We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated. Surface temperature changes over the past century have been episodic and modest and there has been no net global warming for over a decade now. After controlling for population growth and property values, there has been no increase in damages from severe weather-related events. The computer models forecasting rapid temperature change abjectly fail to explain recent climate behavior. Mr. President, your charaterization of the scientific facts regarding climate change and the degree of certainty informing the scientific debate is simply incorrect."

This, to me at the very least shows that there is a considerable number of scientists who have not bought into the theory. To state that 90 percent of the world's climate experts without backing up that number with not only names but their right to the title of expert, is subject to debate at the very least.
