75 out of 10,257 scientists does not equal 98%
BY SCOTT OSBORN
Climate Change activists from Al Gore down have been saying for a decade that 98% of the Scientific community believe in man-made climate change.
Imagine that! Al Gore lied, and he knows he lied!
Since hind site is 20/20, we now know the answer
The 98% lie comes from a 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) survey consisting of an intentionally brief two-minute, two question online survey sent to 10,257 earth scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois.
The widely used survey was sent to only 10,000 scientists, 3,000 came back and only 77 peer-reviewed climate scientists participated!
Yet it is the main talking point used by the left to prove the Climate Change Hoax!!
As Larry Bell writes in Forbes:
“Then, even crazier than that, of those 3,146 that actually took the survey, only a small subset, just 77 of 3,146 scientists were allowed in their survey statistic. That “98% all scientists” referred to a laughably puny number of 75 of those 77 who answered “yes”.”
Only with Common Core math can you make 75 out of 10,257 scientists equal 98% of the entire scientific community!
On the other end, since 1998, more than 31,000 scientists, have announced that “…there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.”
Recently, one of the founders of GreenPeace, Dr. Patrick Moore, (who has a BS in Biology and a PhD in Ecology, wrote the piece that begins:
“I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the science is settled.””
Yet, Al Gore says it is settled? Well Al Gore lies!
Al Gore claimed that the seas were going to rise and islands would disappear! There were actually 35 lies in his movie “An Inconvenient Truth“.
In January, 2006 — when promoting his Oscar-winning (yes, Oscar-winning) documentary, An Inconvenient Truth — Gore declared that unless we took “drastic measures” to reduce greenhouse gasses, the world would reach a doomsday “point of no return” in a mere ten years. He called it a “true planetary emergency.” Well, the ten years passed today, we’re still here, and the climate activists have postponed the apocalypse. Again.
In fact, in October 2007 the High Court in London had identified nine “errors” in Gore’s movie that were so outrageous that it caused a major upheaval when they wanted to show the movie about climate change in their secondary schools.
No such fact checking in America though.
The Science and Public Policy Institute issued a detailed report on the 35 lies that the movie told: 35 Inconvenient Truths: The errors in Al Gore’s movie.
Of course with all that money he is making on this hoax, I guess he has to lie at this point:
Al Gore said the Arctic Ice would be gone by 2013. It grew 30% in 2013 alone.
Global Warming is on it’s deathbed! It seems that the American people are not falling for Al Gore’s lies. A new Gallup poll reveals that only 32% of the public are worried about it a “great deal.” That is back to the level we found in the 80’s which of course was on the heals of the failed Global Cooling hoax.
Maybe it is because there has been no warming for 2 decades now.
Maybe it is because they found out that while Al Gore was claiming the Arctic shelf would be gone by last year, that he failed to mention the Antarctic was growing.
Maybe it is because he said in 2008 that the entire Arctic Shelf would be gone by 2013 and that it is not only not gone, it is growing again. (By 30% in 2013)
Maybe it was because after he claimed in 2008 that the Arctic Ice would be totally gone by 2013, that by 2012, it had already grown by 50%.
Maybe it is because they found out that the scientists were fudging the data on the temperatures.
Maybe it is because they found out that the IPCC (United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has been lying.
Maybe it is because most of the facts laid out in his movie have since been proven to be lies.
Maybe it is because the American public does not like to be threatened when they exercise their 1st Amendment rights and disagree with him.
Maybe it is because Al Gore recently bought beach front property after claiming the oceans are going to rise 20 ft!
Maybe it is because Barak Obama bought the ‘Magnum P.I.’ ocean front property after warning of catastrophic rising of sea levels.
Maybe it is because Climate models showing global warming have been wrong 95% of the time.
Whatever the reason, people are not really falling for it anymore.
