Have you noticed that when you debate an issue with a global warming alarmist and the data is opposed to their “dogmatic religious belief” in anthropogenic CO2 as the cause of everything from colder winters to hotter winters they resort to their favorite counter argument. What is that, ask you? They proudly state that 97% of climate scientists agree with them.
Of course the number of evils (really, you must click the link and visit this website) that global warming alarmists posit are caused by CO2 are… well, frankly, hysterically funny. My two favorite “global warming caused evils” are “increased acne” and the “attack of the killer jellyfish”… although the great walrus stampede is in the running.
But, as usual, I digress. Even before 2017 there was not only skepticism about global warming, also there was skepticism about the claim that 97% of scientists agreed that human CO2 production caused global warming. However, last year there were more than 400 scientific papers (Google search) published that cast doubt on the position that anthropogenic CO2 emissions function as the climate’s fundamental control knob.
