Forty-Nine to One is not Fifty-Fifty. Climate change denialists like to spread it on thick and claim there's some fierce debate over the reality of anthropogenic global warming and there are a good many disinformed, misinformed and simply delusional types who think there is no consensus and it's a toss up.
That's simply garbage served up by people who manufacture garbage for people willing to consume garbage.
Yet another peer-reviewed study into the great body of climate change research studies finds 97.1% endorse the consensus view while a miserably underwhelming 1.9% reject the consensus.
That is the finding of a University of Queensland-led study
that surveyed the abstracts of almost 12,000 scientific papers from
1991-2011 and claims to be the largest peer-reviewed study of its kind.
