Petitions and Polls and Consensus

It's funny -- for a bunch of people who claim there is no such thing as "scientific consensus," climate skeptics sure seem to like to imply they have one, whether it's the "31,000" person petition with the OISM or today's statement in the Washington Post.

Here are the signatories. I could take them a bit more seriously without the Obama caricature. I certainly don't think Obama is lying -- I just think he has a different opinion than these people. Of course, in their eyes that means you are a liar and a scoundrel and probably strangle puppies in your basement after midnight. I've been accused of worse.
