Why is there still no response from the UN to the open letter from 141 leading scientists?
Specifically, challanging supporters of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused climate change to demonstrate that:
1. Variations in global climate in the last hundred years are significantly outside the natural range experienced in previous centuries;
2. Humanity’s emissions of carbon dioxide and other ‘greenhouse gases’ (GHG) are having a dangerous impact on global climate;
3. Computer-based models can meaningfully replicate the impact of all of the natural factors that may significantly influence climate;
4. Sea levels are rising dangerously at a rate that has accelerated with increasing human GHG emissions, thereby threatening small islands and coastal communities;
5. The incidence of malaria is increasing due to recent climate changes;
6. Human society and natural ecosystems cannot adapt to foreseeable climate change as they have done in the past;
7. Worldwide glacier retreat, and sea ice melting in Polar Regions , is unusual and related to increases in human GHG emissions;
8. Polar bears and other Arctic and Antarctic wildlife are unable to adapt to anticipated local climate change effects, independent of the causes of those changes;
9. Hurricanes, other tropical cyclones and associated extreme weather events are increasing in severity and frequency;
10. Data recorded by ground-based stations are a reliable indicator of surface temperature trends.

Because they have no interest in the truth as it does not fit their agenda!

You probably think Dembski is a leading evolutionary biologist as well.
Go through and count how many climatologists are on the list. I see organic chemists and civil engineers.

The UN will get around to those 'scientists'.
First things first.
Right now they have a more pressing issue to contemplate.

No matter how obvious the problem becomes, there will always be deniers. They could be up to their necks in water and swear we need rain.

Why would the UN want to respond to quacks?
