Did you know that 96% of Scientist DON'T believe in Global Warming? You might be surprised to hear this if all you listen to is the mainstream press. Every time you hear a story on global warming you hear the phrase "almost all scientists agree" or "97% of scientist believe in global warming." Last year a study came out saying 97% of scientists believe in climate change, but almost the exact opposite is true.
The study in question surveyed 1,372 known working climate researchers. and found 97% of them still believe in global warming. I think this pool is tainted because these are scientist who get paid to study "Global Warming" which is a conflict of interest. That's like asking PETA members if they're vegetarian, but regardless we will use their number.
On the other hand the Petition Project has 31,000 scientists who have signed a petition saying that they don't believe in manmade global warming.
So let's do the math 97% of 1,372 is 1,330 who still believe in global warming compared to 31,487 who don't. That's only 1 out 24 or 4% of scientists who still believe in global warming.
I think those of us who are on the skeptical side of the debate should use the other side's tactic and repeat this over and over again ad nauseum. 96% of Scientists DON'T believe in Global Warming.
