Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Cannot link to your other study would like to see it.

And that folks is how you take apart the claims of a warmer.

Till next time.

I will debunk your other claims soon enough.

Once again heed your own advice and read my post before you attempt to answer. Read it again and try again.

“Is there a basis for the claim that 97% of scientists agree that greenhouse gas is warming the planet. If there is, show me a study or poll that supports this exact figure.”

I already did, in the first post I made this morning. You ignored it.

Now I need to get back to work. Later.

A very high figure is NOT the same as saying 97% is it?

Tiredofit

I have allready proven that the Doran study you referenced did not support that claim

Don't understand your reply, I will rephrase. Is there a basis for the claim that 97% of scientists agree that greenhouse gas is warming the planet. If there is, show me a study or poll that supports this exact figure.

97% isn’t excluded, as you suggest by claiming “no basis.” I've provided evidence that it's a very high percentage (essentially everybody), and that it even includes "the scourge of...alarmists."

Do you agree with the Weekly Standard that essentially everybody agrees that CO2 and greenhouse gases are warming the earth?

Lets just stick with the facts of the study you referenced.

Posted 192 days ago.

I concede that 75 self identified climate experts claim that. Question 9 established their credentials so they could have said any level of education, was there a verification of the information provided on question 9 that I am unaware of?

Woe now, lets not change the subject just yet, I would like you to admit or deny that there is no basis to claim 97% of scientists say greenhouse gas is changing climate.

I don’t know what you mean by “current theory.” Since you concede that 97% of the climate scientists surveyed agreed man has a “significant role in climate change,” what activities of mankind do you think cause that change?

Posted 192 days ago.

Tiredofit

But there is no evidence of 97% right.

That’s a reasonable comment, luvthesouth. I’ve always said that it’s a solvable engineering problem.

“…there is nothing to support 97% of scientists agree that greenhouse gas is changing our climate.”

I don’t want to make a claim of a specific percentage of climate scientists who agree that greenhouse gas is warming the earth, since, to my knowledge, no studies have backed that up.

However, the quote from the Weekly Standard is consistent with a high percentage.

Again, it said, “Essentially everybody agrees.”

I agree that 75 of 77 self described climate experts (per question #9) said man had significant role in climate change, if you concede that greenhouse gas was not even mentioned. So therefore there is no basis for saying this study supports current theory.

some interesting numbers concerning CO2. currently it is estimated that the worlds forests absorb 40-50% of the worlds total man-made extra CO2 produced by burning carbon based fuels. although what we produce is a small percentage compared to what the earth naturally produces, the extra CO2 that we produce can't be totally absorbed naturally. if the numbers are correct then it is evident that we either need to increase the number of trees, reduce our carbon output or choose a variant of both. personally i choose the latter if not for any reason other than i like trees.

Ok so to recap, there is nothing to support 97% of scientists agree that greenhouse gas is changing our climate?
