connorwyckoffnope 97% of scientists understand that humans affect the climate http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/8/2/024024
Did you even read that study?
It frustrates me how taken out of context it is. The paper didn't survive all scientists, it just looked at climate scientists who published papers on the subject. This is actually a good thing, as who gives a shit what some scientist studying a completely different branch of science thinks, but that does not change the fact that it is not "all scientists".
Second and more importantly, only 62.7% actually endorsed man-made climate change. Whereas, 35.5% had no position on the subject and 1.8% disagreed. (I am referring to the self reported numbers, not the analysis of their abstracts, as the self reported numbers is more charitable to the other side)
They then just completely disregard the people who said they were not sure, and pulled that 97% figure out of there ass.
Only an academic could be stupid enough to consider that 97% of a group agrees with a statement, when 33% says they are not sure.
