Massive Fraud At NASA Climate

The primary tool of global warming alarmists is claiming that 97% of scientists agree with them. They normally cite this NASA web page which says:

97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities

Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet: Scientific Consensus

If you actually click on the reference, you quickly realize that the claim is fraudulent. NASA used a small subset of papers which actually make attribution. (The only people who have any reason to make attribution are climate alarmists.)

Among papers expressing a position on AGW, an overwhelming percentage (97.2% based on self-ratings, 97.1% based on abstract ratings) endorses the scientific consensus on AGW

Two-thirds of the papers they reviewed took no position, so they threw them out. But then comes the really big lie ‚Äì with the one-third of remaining papers, they conflated “humans are causing global warming” with “Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities

We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming. Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.

Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature – IOPscience

Everyone agrees that humans have caused some warming. That is a far cry from saying humans caused all of the claimed warming. Only 52% of professional members of the American Meteorological Society believe humans are primarily responsible for global warming. Thirty-seven percent of professional forecasters believe that, and seventy-eight percent of publishing climate scientists.

No group comes close to 97%. As is normally the case with NASA climate science, they are committing fraud. there is no 97% consensus.

    97% of those who believe in man-made global warming want someone else to pay for it. 3% make a living preaching fire and brimstone.

    Of those in agreement that humans are a central cause of climate change it would be very revealing to know what percent receive significant grant funding premised on the human theory. My guess is that conflict of financial interest would eliminate at least 50% of those.

    If we could also take into account the raw left-wing political motivation of scientists who are academic cultural elites and activists (many of whom cross-over with financial conflicts) that number would likely approach single digits.

    It is easy to get to 97% when you understand they played a trick and created there own definition of climate change to exclude anything that wasn’t from humans . No sun , no volcanos ,no clouds etc … they are now called climate variables (or variances ) and are not included in the UN definition of “climate change ”
    Do most people or main street media know how they are being scammed with this word definition trick ? … No chance and that is how they get away with calling people deniers and Bill Nye the comedian saying !00% of climate change is caused by humans .
    The 97% figure is a proven joke and that is why NASA and NOAA should be out of the temperature production business . Claiming earths average temperature is one way or the other within a fraction of a degree is complete BS or some how historically accurate from the days when bottles were thrown in the water sporadically from a few boats . How does this shit ever see the light of day worth spending $Trillions of new debt on .
