Time and again we are told that 97% of ‘climate scientists’ agree that global warming is real, man made and dangerous. The problem is there is just no foundation for this ongoing myth.

Let me cite some of the more telling reports and surveys done by reputable scientists both here and around the world.

I found these tidbits of sanity posted on the net by: Mr. Bast, president of the Heartland Institute. And Dr. Spencer a principal research scientist for the University of Alabama in Huntsville.  The pair found in part;

Rigorous international surveys conducted by German scientists Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch —most recently published in Environmental Science & Policy in 2010—have found that most climate scientists disagree with the consensus on key issues such as the reliability of climate data and computer models. They do not believe that climate processes such as cloud formation and precipitation are sufficiently understood to predict future climate change.

Surveys of meteorologists repeatedly find a majority oppose the alleged consensus. Only 39.5% of 1,854 American Meteorological Society members who responded to a survey in 2012 said man-made global warming is dangerous.

Finally, the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change—which claims to speak for more than 2,500 scientists—is probably the most frequently cited source for the consensus. Its latest report claims that "human interference with the climate system is occurring, and climate change poses risks for human and natural systems." Yet relatively few have either written on or reviewed research having to do with the key question: How much of the temperature increase and other climate changes observed in the 20th century was caused by man-made greenhouse-gas emissions? The IPCC lists only 41 authors and editors of the relevant chapter of the Fifth Assessment Report addressing "anthropogenic and natural radiative forcing."

Of the various petitions on global warming circulated for signatures by scientists, the one by the Petition Project, a group of physicists and physical chemists based in La Jolla, Calif., has by far the most signatures—more than 31,000 (more than 9,000 with a Ph.D.). It was most recently published in 2009, and most signers were added or reaffirmed since 2007. The petition states that "there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of . . . carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate."

This is really upsetting because I was ready to panic full out! But as you continue to learn there is no basis for the claim that 97% of scientists believe that man-made climate change is a dangerous problem. But make no mistake the talking points will not change and Barack Obama will continue to preach from the same hymnal even though it’s becoming totally discredited.

You have been warned or not… depending on your point of view.
