    Hi. I haven't visited CU in a while, so hello again, CU. I hope everyone is doing well. On to business.

    I don't know if you all are still being sticks-in-the-mud about climate change, but here is an article which might push some of the fence sitters over the edge...

    Survey of 12,000 studies finds strong agreement on climate change

    We already knew 97% of climate scientists backed the scientific consensus.

    by Scott K. Johnson - May 16 2013, 10:39am EDT

    Over half of Americans believe that there’s considerable disagreement among climate scientists about human-caused climate change—perhaps because they've heard that from industry advocacy campaigns and politicians. With so much controversy in the media many assume that the same controversy must exist in the scientific community.

    In most situations people agree that it’s sensible to go with the majority of relevant experts whether that's in accepting that protons are real or a given medical treatment is effective. Those decisions depend critically on an accurate understanding of expert consensus.

    Several attempts have been made to shine a light on expert opinions relating to global warming. One such study surveyed about 1,000 active climate scientists, finding that 97 percent of them accepted the evidence for the consensus position that anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are largely responsible for the warming observed over the last century.

    It makes it all the more interesting that Global Warming priests feel the need to shout "See, everyone agrees with me."

    Since I am often the only person in a room who is correct, I am used to being outnumbered by people who think they are intelligent.

    In a recent survey of Baptist ministers they found that 100% believed in God, who'd a thought?

    Is this the real TNO (AKA. Hootie) or just a sock?

    So, in the absence of proof of global warming ("climate change" is an absurdity, since climate is always changing), you are now presenting evidence of how well your side has cooked the books. Nice try.

    The study was based on articles in peer-reviewed journals (which have already demonstrated a vicious bias in favor of global warming) and the authors discovered that, among those papers which addressed global warming, 97% were in lockstep with the opinions of the editors who decide what goes into the publications. Quite impressive. And even then, they had to cook the books to get that result. From the article, it was stated that only 33% of the papers on climate addressed the so-called consensus opinion at all, and it was among those 33% that they determined the 97% number. Thus, the real percentage of papers that propagandized for global warming was 32%, with 67% not addressing the issue at all. This demonstrates a consensus, not among the scientists, but among the editors. It's like doing a survey of OPEDs in the NY Times to find out the national consensus on Obama.

    The next step, sending the survey to the authors of the 67% of the papers that were neutral, resulted in 1,200 responses from 8,500 sent, a 14% response. 67% of that 14%, or 804, expressed agreement with the editors' position. That means that 9% of the scientists surveyed were willing to go on the record in support of global warming whern they knew that the highly biased establishment (who decide what gets published and who gets grants) were watching, while the rest took the Fifth.

    This isn't science, it's an election in a dictatorship.

    Comrade Stalin once again wins 97% of the vote!

    Everybody loves Comrade Stalin.

    We could have all kinds of fun with this.

    100% of self-identified paranoids declined to take the survey, but demanded to know why we were giving it.
    100% of self-identifed procrastinators requested an extension on the survey deadline.
    100% of persons calling themselves "The Night Owl" favored the use of bogus surveys in the advancement of global warming hysteria.

    We have a theory on what is causing the planet to warm so rapidly and lots of evidence to support that theory. Let me know when your side publishes the theory that increasing CO2 has no effect on climate and then we can sit around and wait for when it gains widespread support in the scientific community... which will be never.

    You had better get with your handlers, the climate change people are getting ready to shift into reverse, they are now spouting that C02 is causing the planet to cool, your religion/scam is evolving. Praise be to Al Gore! Amen

    Good grief. The Branch Algorians are restless again. Someone needs to burn down their compound again.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
