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.

From where did you copy and paste that "Out of 12,000 scientific papers..." quote of a few minutes ago?

Care to let us know where your "bible" is? After all, only 1 of 143 climate change papers subscribed to your religion, according to your own words.

Of course, according to figures cited by stillhere himself, only 0.7% of peer-reviewed papers "see" things the way he does.

Well, stillhere's nonevidence isn't very convincing.

Let's be honest, stillhere. It's unhelpful to factor in the opinions of those who don't give an opinion, and that's what I did when I repeated your 0.7% figure. It's more helpful to say that 3% of the papers opining reject the AGW position and 97% of those giving an opinion accept it.

When you included the opinions of those who gave none, it made your tiny minority look even tinier. It plummeted from less than 3% to less that 3/4 of one percent.

Now you're even denying your own words.

And owiseone was right. 97% of those who opined agreed with the consensus position.

And less than 3% of those who opined rejected the consensus position.

Maybe you didn't understand how I turned 0.7% into 1 in every 143.

Posted 476 days ago.

harryanderson

Mischaracterized your words? I used your exact words, which were "0.7 % rejected AGW."

Gotta go now. Adios. Sleep well.

According to your reckoning, 99.3% "doesn't" agree with you.

Posted 476 days ago.

harryanderson

I only repeated what you wrote. You wrote that only 0.7% rejected AGW.

According to your post, onlt 1 in 143 papers agrees with your extremist view. Again, the figures you cited.

harryanderson

When you found out the Cook study shows how extreme your position is, you start attacking its credibility instead of changing your mind.

You are the one who cited it, not me. I only referred to the statistics you cited. and those figures show that your position is shared by only one paper out of every 143.

Since you won't answer, I'll tell you how many supported you. It was 1 in 143.

Posted 476 days ago.

harryanderson

How many supported you?

Posted 476 days ago.

harryanderson

Of course, that 0.7% includes those papers who expressed no opinion. If you include only those who gave an opinion, the percentage of papers that agree with you goes all the way up to 2.4%.

Does that make you feel more validated? After all, 2.4% is three times 0.7%. You're moving up!

Less than one percent rejected the consensus. You wrote it yourself. If I was such a tiny minority, I'd be inclined to reevaluate my position.

I'm betting you won't. Can't, I mean.

Posted 476 days ago.

harryanderson

Only 1 of 143 rejected the consensus.

Picking on typos in your desperation, huh?
