ORIGIN OF THE 97% "CONSENSUS OF SCIENTISTS" ON GLOBAL WARMING
(references added at end on o3/24/2013)
The highly promoted mantra that a 97% "consensus of scientists" proves global warming is a critical issue and, even more importantly, is man-made is improperly arrived at and, hence, is invalid. Scientific conclusions and laws are arrived at not by consensus but from indisputable data and information arrived at by proper use of the "Scientific Method" and statistics. Both were ignored in coming to the "97% consensus" conclusion. It is all but inarguable that politicians co-opted science and "scientists" and both politicized and commercialized the issue called "global warming." With much criticism of the lack of data to prove "global warming, more emphasis now is on "climate change." How was the "97% consensus of scientists derived?" Mr. Roland (Keith) Sadler gives the following explanation.
There were many skeptics from the beginning but their voices were quieted and they were disparaged and discredited. Still are!
In 1998, Dr. Arthur Robinson, Director of the Oregon Institute for Science and Medicine, posted his first "Global Warming skeptic" petition.
Today, his list includes nearly 32,000 Americans who are skeptics of man-made global warming. All have science qualifications. More than 9,000 hold PhDs in the sciences. Almost 32,000 thousand skeptics is twelve times as many scientists as the 2,500 scientific reviewers claimed by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to form a "scientific consensus."
This piece of propaganda comes from a 2009 American Geophysical Union survey. It’s also referred to as the Doran Survey or Zimmerman Thesis.
The “survey” was a two-minute, two-question, online questionnaire sent to 10,257 scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois.
Only 3,146 earth scientists responded.
The researchers then cherry-picked 77 of the 3,146 who responded and labeled them “experts”.
Of those 77 “experts”, 75 ( 97.4%) agreed with man-made Global Warming. Surprise!
The AGU survey has been widely mocked and criticized by the scientific community, most notably by the respondents to the original survey.
The planet has not warmed in over 17 years, it is a scientific fact that there is no correlation between CO2 in the atmosphere and warming of the planet
"Theory crushed"...Mr. Sadler But the mantra goes on...JAM
A major issue with a preponderance of "scientific reports" and public focus on global warming, other critical problems are going unresolved. In many years of technical Research and Development I always operated from the tenet that " bad data are worse than no data." Bad data and improper information beg and assure bad decisions. It is a fact!
