    Climate Change: A Consensus Among Scientists? | Information Is Beautiful


    Climate Change: A Consensus Among Scientists?
    December 23, 2009
    Off the back of the recent Climate Skeptics vs The Consensus image, we were curious how many scientists might make up ‘The Consensus’.

    The Skeptical side claims at least 31,486 dissenters in their ranks, according to the PetitionProject.org. That sounds like a lot. But is it?

    You have got me, however it is still better than "the decider" method.

    The first graphic and his attempt at an explanation is utterly useless.

    Next.

    How many scientists do we have that are qualified on climate stuff?

    I would not take the word of a bioligist type of scientist on globull worming.

    I have a scientist friend on another board and I think she would be the first to say she is not qualified to decide on climatology.

    You can pretty much find statistics to support just about anything you want to believe in if you look on the web long enough. Seems to me like when the scientists were busted for feeding out false facts concerning the climate change data just to keep this hoax alive they shot themselves in the foot. I didn't believe any of the claims before that event and I certainly don't believe any of it now that it's been brought to light how false this whole thing about climate change is. I think you're pissing up a rope.

    "Consensus" is one of the biggest semantic tip-offs that the globalclimatecoolerwarmering scam is...well...as scam.

    Nobody needs any trumped-up "consensus" to physically prove that the planets revolve around the sun or that water runs downhill.

    My thoughts on globull worming:

    1. Air pollution is bad.
    2. Mankind may be having an effect on the climate. Not only thru CO2 emissions but general pollution, deforestation, etc.
    3. If our climate is impacted by what we do undoing that will be massive and long term.
    4. If we are impacting our climate nothing says that is has to be a gradual thing. We may experience non linear changes. The climate of the earth may be a fragile balance and not take much to tip the scales.
    5. Yes the earth does experience non manmade climate change.

    Who is Galileo and who is the orthodoxy which claims to have all the "knowledge" in this scenario, Scooter?

    This from your post:
    "Nobody needs any trumped-up "consensus" to physically prove that the planets revolve around the sun or that water runs downhill."

    On the water the discussion would be WHY it runs downhill.
