Is the Claim that 97% of Scientists Believe Man Causes Climate Change a Lie?

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

The statement that 97% of scientists believe that man is causing climate change is the bedrock of the “scientific consensus” that President Obama and other left-wing politicians use to silence debate from skeptical researchers, conservative policy analysts and elected officials.

Well, it turns out that this claim is as untruthful as Obama’s health care promises that Americans can keep their health plan and doctor.

In a revealing commentary published in The Wall Street Journal, Joseph Bast and Roy Spencer describe, “The Myth of the Climate Change ’97.'”

Yet the assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction. The so-called consensus comes from a handful of surveys and abstract-counting exercises that have been contradicted by more reliable research.

The commentary analyzes the basis of the 97% claims showing how the “consensus” number is the result of evaluations that suffer from serious deficiencies.

They conclude:

We could go on, but the larger point is plain. There is no basis for the claim that 97% of scientists believe that man-made climate change is a dangerous problem.

Enemies of the truth will try to use false claims to silence opposition in an effort to support their radical agenda.

Over time these propagandists will be exposed as liars as the facts emerge.
