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 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.

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.

How many supported you?

Posted 341 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.

Only 1 of 143 rejected the consensus.

harryanderson

Picking on typos in your desperation, huh?

The consensus is robust. Like stillhere wrote, of 12,000 papers reviewed, only 1 out of every 143 rejected it. Clearly, the climate scientists who reject it are a tiny band of extremists.

you said so yourself. you have taken yourself to the woodshed.

I wrote that wrong. Only one 1 in 143 reject the consensus position.

Posted 341 days ago.

harryanderson

As you said, 0.7% of those studied, or 1 out of every 143, did not reject global warming. Period.

As usual, when stifled in debate, you resort to the childish insults. In doing so, you show who you are.

Let me make this as clear as possible. When evaluating opinions, we don't count the opinions of those who don't express an opinion. Got it? 97% of the papers that expressed an opinion endorsed AGW. That's what owiseone said. He told the truth.

Your post shows the vast difference between the climate scientists who study the issue and the gullible people who have been flim-flammed by the propaganda campaign referenced at the beginning of this thread.

Your statement is factual. Only one out of every 143 papers on global warming reject it.

Posted 341 days ago.

harryanderson

You have unwittingly shown how extreme the "reject AGW" scientists are.

Posted 341 days ago.

harryanderson

So those who "reject AGW" are a small number of outliers whose views disagree with the consensus.

Posted 341 days ago.

harryanderson

According to your own figures and your own reasoning, only one paper of every 143 agrees with you.
