In February 1992 the Science and Environmental Policy Project (SEPP) published the "Statement by Atmospheric Scientists on Greenhouse Warming" objecting to the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development Earth Summit planned for Rio de Janiero in June 1992.[1]

The signatories to the letter complained that the Earth Summit "aims to impose a system of global environmental regulations, including onerous taxes on energy fuels, on the population of the United States and other industrialized nations. Such policy initiatives derive from highly uncertain scientific theories. They are based on the unsupported assumption that catastrophic global warming follows from the burning of fossil fuels and requires immediate action. We do not agree."

Signatories to the statement

The statement listed the affiliations of the signatories but stated they were "for identification purposes only".
