Out of the 3000 plus that responded only 50% thought there was any GW. so they hand picked 79 of the biggest quacks that they find and still only 75 went along with them.

so in their minds 75 quacks equals 97%....

Oh, so only 94.9% agreed instead of 97%. What a stark difference.
Only Martin would think that is a significant difference

Well no... 75 hand picked quacks out of over 10,000.... that's not 97% or 94%.... not even close.

Actually the number of scientists who support global warming is huge. Far more than those who deny it.

That's just not so. It's about 50% and those that do agree get their paychecks making bogus claims to scare people.

It's overwhelming.

Science is based on consensus, it's neigh on impossible to get such agreement on all sorts of things, Climate Change is a slam dunk, only pure idiots would go counter to such overwhelming expertise.

It's never been a consensus, and the so-called "consensus" is still a myth.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.
