The warmists out there always claim that their science is better than anyoneÂ else’sÂ because theyÂ haveÂ had peer-reviewedÂ papers published.
Well here is a peer reviewed paper that will rip their undies:
It is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.
Donât look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerningÂ global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewedÂ Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.
The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists (summarizedÂ hereÂ andÂ here) revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.Â
According to the newly published survey of geoscientists and engineers, merely 36 percent of respondents fit the âComply with Kyotoâ model. The scientists in this group âexpress the strong belief that climate change is happening, that it is not a normal cycle of nature, and humans are the main or central cause.â
The authors of the survey report, however, note that the overwhelming majority of scientists fall within four other models, each of which is skeptical of alarmist global warming claims.
The survey finds that 24 percent of the scientist respondents fit the âNature Is Overwhelmingâ model. âIn their diagnostic framing, they believe that changes to the climate are natural, normal cycles of the Earth.â Moreover, âthey strongly disagree that climate change poses any significant public risk and see no impact on their personal lives.â
Another group of scientists fit the âFatalistsâ model. These scientists, comprising 17 percent of the respondents, âdiagnose climate change as both human- and naturally caused. âFatalistsâ consider climate change to be a smaller public risk with little impact on their personal life. They are skeptical that the scientific debate is settled regarding the IPCC modeling.â These scientists are likely to ask, âHow can anyone take action if research is biased?â
