The survey was sent to over 10,000 scientists and out of that group 79 of those who bothered to answer the survey identified themselves as climate scientists, and out of that number 75 of them said global warming was man-made. So it turns out for all the hoopla this whole notion that 97% of scientists believe global warming is man-made we are taking the word of 75 scientists out of a total of over 10,000 scientists.
Despite the fact that more and more scientists are coming out against man-made global warming, and despite the fact NASA and NOAA have been changing historical temperatures to fudge the numbers, we have been told for years that something like 97% of all scientists believe man-made global warming is real. A number Barack Obama magically turned into 99.5%…
First let me restate the 97% number is based on a lie (the words in bold are mine):
The origin of the “97 percent” statistic has been traced back to a 2009 study by University of Illinois/Chicago graduate student Kendall Zimmerman, who sent a survey to 10,257 earth scientists asking them two questions:
“When compared with pre-1800s levels, do you think that mean global temperatures have generally risen, fallen, or remained relatively constant?” and
“Do you think human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures?”
