    Report: 97 percent of scientists say man-made climate change is real - Science Fair: Science and Space News - USATODAY.com

    Forget the four out of five dentists who recommend Trident…. Try the 97 out of 100 scientists that believe in man-made climate change.

    This data comes from a new survey out this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    The study found that 97 percent of scientific experts agree that climate change is "very likely" caused mainly by human activity.

    The report is based on questions posed to 1,372 scientists. Nearly all the experts agreed that it is "very likely that anthropogenic greenhouse gases have been responsible for most of the unequivocal warming of the Earth's average global temperature in the second half of the twentieth century."

    As for the 3 percent of scientists who remain unconvinced, the study found their average expertise is far below that of their colleagues, as measured by publication and citation rates.

    "very likely"

    This shows they are just guessing at the cause.

    "The study examined 1,372 scientists who had taken part in reviews of climate science or had put their name to statements regarding the key findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)."

    This is like saying we polled the members at USMB who post dire man made global warming thread and they thought...

    Man made climate change is not real. Nobody with common sense believes in it anymore. Even the support from the Euro-weenies has dropped. Move on.

    Hate to call you a liar like this, but that article does not mention Al Gore at all.
