A very quick breakdown of the lies, sophistry & misrepresentation surrounding the almost ubiquitous 97% ‘climate consensus’ claim.
** This is pretty old now, but I’ve moved it here so that I can reference it **
I’ve quickly broken down the the details of what is and is not demonstrated in skepticalscience.com’s representation of the level of endorsement found among peer reviewed papers, of the belief that global warming is being primarily driven by man – along with what skepticalscience.com explicitly and implicitly claims that the paper demonstrates, and how trusted sources cite the paper as proof of something which it either makes no claim to prove, or incorrectly (dishonestly?) misrepresents.
This is the primary source among Nasa’s referenced sources here:
“Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals1 show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities.”
I’ll be ignoring the absurdity of consensus driven ‘science’ for the time being. There is no need to argue the science denial of such a position when the consensus claim is a clear fabrication to begin with.
