The Global Warming Petition Project
, also known as the Oregon Petition has fired up debate on both sides of the climate change issue since it was first organized in 1998. The petition seeks to demonstrate that a consensus on the science of climate change does not exist.
The petition, signed by more than 31,000 people with advanced degrees related to science has garnered strong support from those who do not believe global warming is human-caused. On the other hand, the climate change community, including politicians, grassroots environmentalists, and the media have soundly rejected the petition as being fraught with fake signatures and based on flawed evidence.

The pro global warming community has condemned the qualifications of the signatories on the Global Warming Petition as bogus, claiming that those who have signed the petition have no expertise to lend credibility to their support. On the other hand, the Global Warming Petition organizers stand firm in their assertions that any inappropriately added signatures have been removed and that the remaining signatures are from highly educated, relevant and qualified people.
Activists continue to resist the idea that there is not a consensus on the science of climate change. Instead, despite the 31,000-plus signatures on the Global Warming Petition, climate change activists claim that 97 percent of the scientific community believes global warming is human-caused.
