No, no, no! It's evil SUV drivers killing the climate!

China adds 2000+ soft coal plants with no regulation - nothing to see here! The unicorns will handle that.

How quickly we forget the images of pollution clouds at the Beijing Olympics!

Why do scientists "believe" in man made climate change at much higher percentages than lay people?

Since when is 1/3 a consensus?
No, I am not confused. I stated the conclusions correctly.

To quote: "We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming."


Not all scientific papers on global warming are about the causes of global warming; thus 66 % of abstracts did not address the issue of whether or not the causes are man-made. Of those that did, the majority endorsed man-made causes; only a small percentage rejected that theory.

Of 20 years of research on global warming, only 0.7 % of the research papers rejected man-made causes.

Because these are climate research scientists. There is such a thing as expertise and knowledge of one's field, and that's what these scientists are experts in ---the climate.

No it's not. The vast majority of climatologists agree that the evidence is over-whelming that global warming is the result of man-made releases of carbon-dioxide into the atmosphere.
