Cook’s 97% climate consensus paper crumbles upon examination


Bjorn Lomborg, a global warming skeptic but does believe somewhat in AGW, is one of the worlds foremost experts on climate change and its actual true effect on humanity but moreso because the alarmists have hijacked the message concentrating efforts to empower the global elite whereas he shines light on where the focus should be. The poverty stricken people around the world who are neglected so that the Hollywood types can feel good about contributing money to a solar panel farm in Malawi vs using that money to build a clean coal plant or produce clean drinking water. The latter truly helps eradicate poverty and increase living conditions while the solar farm only increases the ‘charitable effect’ of those that sit in the clean coal fired energized homes sipping their cucumber infused clean drinking water.

Bjorn chooses to make a difference on what will actually make a difference. Not what will make a liberal greenie feel better about saving the environment.

Watts Up With That?

Bjørn Lomborg writes on his Facebook Page

pinocchio_puppetUgh. Do you remember the “97% consensus”, which even Obama tweeted?

Turns out the authors don’t want to reveal their data.

It has always been a dodgy paper (http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/8/2/024024/article). Virtually everyone I know in the debate would automatically be included in the 97% (including me, but also many, much more skeptical).

The paper looks at 12,000 papers written in the last 25 years (see here, the paper doesn’t actually specify the numbers, http://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2013/07/12/watch-the-pea/). It ditches about 8,000 papers because they don’t take a position.
