Internationally recognized by over 300 independent sources including Forbes, the International Journal of Modern Physics and the United States Senate.
What a normal person reading this would be led to believe is, that a news organization such as Forbes or the legislative body US Senate made some official statement or at least most people in the organization signed off on its credibility. Nothing close to that, in fact, it’s hypocritical that Andrew would use this when the argument is against his position:
Policy statements release by a handful of council members or signed by just the president of a scientific organization can speak for no one other than these few scientists. It is disingenuous to imply that the membership bodies (hundreds of thousands of members) of these scientific organizations (which never voted to approve such statements) can be used in support of these statements. Many members join scientific organizations for free access to organizational resources or discounts on journals and meetings. They may have little to no interest in the organization’s policy positions. Without a comprehensive survey or poll of the membership’s position in relation to the organization’s policy statements no meaningful conclusions can be drawn.
By this logic, the fact that James Taylor was allowed to blog or comment of a Forbes website does not mean it’s endorsed or representative of Forbes (although it shouldn’t surprise you even if it did, after all, Forbes is not a scientific organization or known to speak directly to scientists). The fact Marc Morano was able to post this shit

on the Environment & Public Works Republican Website, does not even mean a Senator has (but again, sure, some Senators have, such as Inhofe, but again, they’re POLITICIANS, NOT SCIENTISTS).
This is how Populartechnology gathers the false impression of support and credibility, he tells you it’s recognized by “sources” but what SCIENTIFIC ORGANIZATIONS?
