Can we put to bed this absolute nonsense about the scientific community being "split" over man-made global warming?
Scientists say climate change is happening and that we’re exacerbating it. Don’t believe me? Check out this beautifully simple pie chart that illustrates just how rare climate denial in the scientific community is:James Powell
That’s right. Only one — ONE — of the 9,137 authors of peer-reviewed climate change articles rejected anthropogenic global warming. Geochemist James Powell did the research on publications from November 2012 and December 2013. (But if a year-long sample isn’t good enough for you, Powell previously examined 21 years of peer-reviewed literature and found that only 24 out of 13,950 articles — or two-tenths of a percent — came out and rejected human-caused climate change.)
The one guy that did dissent: a Russian who notes that measures to rein in global warming would hurt his country's exports of oil and gas.
The industry that has sprung up to stop action on global warming is sponsored by energy corporations collectively worth hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars. It's all lies and bought politicians, and its worked and will continue to work.
Right up until the disasters keep coming.
