    Climate Change: Consensus
    "Very likely due"? That hardly seems like settled science and, until it is, we should just accept that it is still under study.

    Settled enough.

    The study examined almost twelve thousand abstracts of scientific articles published between 1991 and 2011 on the topics "global climate change" or "global warming," and found 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. Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming."

    The study confirmed, as well as refined and extended, previous work by Naomi Oreskes and James Lawrence Powell investigating the consensus in the scientific literature; it is also consistent with surveys of climate scientists, such as William R. L. Anderegg, James W. Prall, Jacob Harold, and Stephen H. Schneider's paper (in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 2011), that show a similar percentage accepting the consensus position.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well it will be interesting to learn what the truth is once the science has been completed.

    Oh, that's done. You just don't want to accept it.

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Science is never complete.

    Well, I know you didn't read the abstract, and clearly didn't see the paper.


    But I'm not surprised.

    Oh, you are right, I made a mistake. Might as well say 97-98% of career criminals prefer lower prison sentences.

    Nice cover.

    Why don't you read some science before you pretend to be able to critique it?

    Then post some science... That's an opinion survey that seems to be based on published papers, and not actual conversations.

    I would like to see the actual procedure here, I'm surprised they didn't just claim 100%? The Eco-fascists have a track record for rationally addressing criticisms.

    It's especially funny when the data hasn't matched the hypothesis for, and I've been corrected, 18 years now. It's funny though because these delusional morons actually expect people to believe their new definition of science where the hypothesis failing is only further proof that the hypothesis is correct.
