Dear Keith Briffa,


I am writing to you because you are an IPCC author and I would like to know your views on
the "Global Warming Petition Project" (see [1]http://www.petitionproject.org/index.html).


Were you aware of the petition before receiving this message?

Yes [ ]

No [ ]


In part, the text of the petition states "There is no convincing scientific evidence that
human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in
the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption
of the Earth's climate."

Do you agree with this statement?

Yes [ ]

No [ ]

Other [ ]


Do you agree that there is a consensus of scientific opinion that human release of carbon
dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future,
cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate?

Yes [ ]

No [ ]

Other [ ]


In general, should politicians implement policies on the basis of claims of a consensus of
scientific opinion when there are at least some scientists who disagree and proposed
policies would impose major costs?

Yes [ ]

No [ ]

Other [ ]


Had you signed the petition before receiving this message?

Yes [ ]

No [ ]


Have you or will you sign the petition now?

Yes [ ]

No [ ]


I would be grateful if you would send me your answers by return email. The findings from
this survey will be published at [2]http://publicpolicyforecasting.com.


Yours sincerely,

Kesten Green
