97 articles debunking the global warming “97 percent” consensus

Watts Up With That?* has compiled 97 very good articles that debunk the claim that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is the result of human activity.

“The ‘97% consensus’ article is poorly conceived, poorly designed and poorly executed. It obscures the complexities of the climate issue and it is a sign of the desperately poor level of public and policy debate in this country [UK] that the energy minister should cite it.“

Mike Hulme, Ph.D. Professor of Climate Change, University of East Anglia (UEA)

The John Cook study is a manuscript said to have analyzed peer-reviewed scientific studies, examining 11,944 climate analyses from 1991–2011 matching the subjects ‘global climate change’ or ‘global warming’. Watts Up With That? has compiled 97 articles that disprove Dr. Cook’s 97% “consensus” study that is poorly conceived, designed and executed. You can see and read the list of articles here.

My personal favorite out of the news articles selected is this op-ed published in the UK Guardian authored by University of Sussex economics professor Richard Tol. What I found pleasantly surprising is that England’s notoriously hard-left rag would allow such an essay to be published. You know something is amiss when a sturdy Leftist news source permits an opinion piece that contradicts the official position of a publication to be printed/

*CORRECTION 12/21/2014: The list was compiled by Popular Technology not WattsUpWithThat?.
