Contrary to what many people think, the debate about the essential aspects of man-made global warming is over.......among scientists in the field of climate studies. ******************** "In the scientific field of climate studies â which is informed by many different disciplines â the consensus is demonstrated by the number of scientists who have stopped arguing about what is causing climate change â and thatâs nearly all of them. A survey of all peer-reviewed abstracts on the subject 'global climate change' published between 1993 and 2003 shows that not a single paper rejected the consensus position that global warming is man caused. 75% of the papers agreed with the consensus position while 25% made no comment either way, focusing on methods or paleoclimate analysis (Oreskes 2004). Several subsequent studies confirm that â...the debate on the authenticity of global warming and the role played by human activity is largely nonexistent among those who understand the nuances and scientific basis of long-term climate processesâ. (Doran 2009). In other words, more than 95% of scientists working in the disciplines contributing to studies of our climate, accept that climate change is almost certainly being caused by human activities. We should also consider official scientific bodies and what they think about climate change. There are no national or major scientific institutions anywhere in the world that dispute the theory of anthropogenic climate change. Not one." http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-scientific-consensus-basic.htm In the field of climate science, the consensus is unequivocal: human activities are causing climate change.
