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.

"I will debunk your other claims soon enough."

I said that too myself in the voice of the Terminator....aaaah comedy gold.

Get to the choppa!

Take apart the claims of a warmer?

LOL!

Ok. Seriously. A lot of other "warmer" "claims" have been made....yet where have you taken them apart?

You've invested so much energy in this one little point. Why not show the same gusto as the others.

I guess this is the one where you felt you had a chance of getting somewhere right?

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

hahahahahahaah LOL!

No what you did there is find a singular point of contention and then camp out on it and claim victory.

There are so many points to be talked about on this issue. Far better ones than this low hanging fruit you've latched on.

Oh my god this is hilarious.

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

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?

Posted 220 days ago.

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.

Tiredofit

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.

Posted 220 days ago.

harryanderson

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 220 days ago.

Tiredofit

But there is no evidence of 97% right.

Posted 220 days ago.

harryanderson

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.”
