Scientists Reject Global Warming: 1.6% of International Scientists Reject the Idea of Human Generated

Original post made by Debunking Global Warming Myth on May 16, 2013

If there wasn't any doubt before, now we know: Not all scientists do agree that humans are causing global warming.

As researchers under the guidance of John Cook at Skeptical Science discovered in a "citizen science" survey of 11,944 peer-reviewed articles, 1.6 percent of the authors expressing an opinion on the subject rejected or were uncertain about the consensus that the earth is undergoing anthropogenic (human-generated) global warming (AGW).

And 97.1 percent of the nearly 4,000 articles in which the author(s) took a position endorsed the AGW consensus. (The survey was published May 15 in Environmental Research Letters as an open access article.)

So let me get this straight. I want to make sure i understand this completely. If 1.6% of international scientist debunk global warming...that means 98.4% believe it is real. Mmmmmm, I will go with the majority on this one.

Let us all hope and pray that the Obama administration doesn't try to capitalize on the tragedy in Moore, Oklahoma, to raise our taxes for things like tornado detection, tornado preparedness, and tornado response teams. The whole global warming hysteria has really gotten out of control. As recent studies indicate, higher carbon emissions are actually better for enhanced plant life. Duh. Why is everyone concerned about greenhouse effects when many of us would love to have greenhouse effects in our own backyards for tomato plants, cucumbers, and radishes.

God damn Debunking... you're post almost doesn't deserve the justification of a comment because of the utter ignorance of actual scientific evidence.

Start here: Web Link

Or here: Web Link

If that's too much reading for you I understand. But at least inform yourself what 97% of scientists agree on (not liberal media, but actual peer-reviewed scientists) before you let your dumb fingers hit the keyboard.

I spend my entire day trying to teach Pleasanton kids to not turn out like you.
