Do 97% of Climate Scientists Really Agree?

Is it true that 97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is real? Where does the 97% figure come from? And if it is true, do they agree on both the severity of and the solution to climate change? New York Times bestselling author Alex Epstein, founder of the Center for Industrial Progress, reveals the origins of the “97%” figure and explains how to think more clearly about climate change.

    Do 97% of physics professors even believe Einstein’s general or special theory of relativity?
    I bet not!

    The 97% of climate scientist statistic is utter crap and only repeated by ideologues and fools.

    John Cook is best known as the “John Cook, the crook who cooked the books.”
    What he did was a text book example of cherry picking – he discarded several THOUSAND papers that he though would disagree that man causes “climate change”; and he ended up with a few hundred that MAY have said so.

    Why don’t the scientists help rid the planet of pesky humans and lead by example.

    Of course climate change is real. It has been changing (for better or worse) since the dawn of time.

    I’m thinking 97% of tree huggers are idiots, so it must be fact!

      In the 70’s we were all going to die in another ice age.
