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.

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

And even if there has been warming, there is no proof whatsoever that man made co2 is causing it

Ahhhh worldbank where all the experts are lololololol

www dot worldbank dot org/en/topic/climatechange/research.........The science is unequivocal that humans are causing global warming, and changes are already being observed. Fourteen of the 15 hottest years since record keeping began over 130 years ago have been since the turn of the century (2000–2015).

In Cooks own words I anticipate there will be around 6000 “neutral” papers. So what I was thinking of doing next was a public crowd sourcing project where the public are given the list of neutral papers and links to the full paper — if they find evidence of an endorsement, they submit it to SkS (Skeptical Science)…. Thus over time, we would gradually process the 6000 neutral papers, converting many of them to endorsement papers — and make regular announcements like “hey the consensus just went from 99.75% to 99.8%, here are the latest papers with quotes.”

Out of the nearly 12,000 scientific papers Cook’s team evaluated, only 65 endorsed Cook’s alarmist position. That’s less than one percent, not 97 percent. Moreover, as we reported, the Cook study was flawed from the beginning, using selection parameters designed to weight the outcome in favor of the alarmist position.

I doubt you can be honest but give it a shot. 97% of 32 % is not a consensus. And 67% in the biased survey failed to endorse your theory. Fact

I guess you cannot show me

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.

Harry show me where is claimed you were mischaracterizing my words

Posted 145 days ago.

Stillhere

In fact the vast majority did NOT endorse AGW in Cooks faulty survey

harryanderson

Now you're even denying your own words.

Posted 145 days ago.

Stillhere

I am also right that 97% of 32% is not a scientific consensus
