UPDATE: I received the e-mail below from Bart clarifying the survey.

Hi Roger,

These are the survey questions that we distributed earlier this year (april), ie this is not an active survey at this moment.

We will communicate the survey results at a later stage.

Issues related to the role of climate science in society will also receive attention. The results and their analysis will be published on our website and submitted to a scientific journal. We anticipate this study to facilitate a constructive dialogue on the selected issues, between people of different opinion, and to help communicate these issues to a wider audience.

The summary of the survey is given in

Survey on the opinions on climate change

which reads

Newsitem | 22-03-2012

PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency, in conjunction with the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute (KNMI) and the University of Queensland (Australia), is investigating the range of scientific opinions about climate change. The objective of this study is to gain insight into how climate scientists perceive the public debate on the physical scientific aspects of climate change.

To this end, an international survey is being held among scientists who have published about global warming. Also invited are people who publicly have raised criticisms against climate science. Survey responses remain anonymous.

Physical scientific aspects of climate change are a focal point in the public debate. Therefore, this survey is focused on these ‘IPCC Working Group I’ topics, as they form the foundations for further deliberation; for example, regarding impacts or response strategies.
