Where Did the 97% on Global Warming Come From?

Updated on August 12, 2017


The Petition Project features over 31,000 scientists signing the petition stating "There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere ..."

Myth and Fabricated News Media

There is a difference between scientists and “climate scientists’.
About the only things the climate scientists agree on is that 97% - is 100% Wrong.

When I hear high percentages - I always wonder how accurate they are AND how they got those high percentages!

Does anyone else wonder about this?

How did this 97% get started?

At a science conference between 1991 – 2011 with over 12,000 scientists attending, one scientist an Australian John Cook asked attending scientists to fill out a paper concerning global warming.

ONLY 4,000 of these scientists even answered. That means 33 – 34% of these scientists filled out anything on request.

66% or 7,930 took no position on man-made global warning.

ONLY 32.6 percent or 3,896 endorsed the consensus that humans contribute to global warming,

and 1% either rejected that position or were uncertain about it.

Neither surveys of scientists nor their research justify the strength of Cook’s claim.

Trying to sift through the Internet

Since 33% appeared to endorse ‘anthropogenic climate change’,

John Cook THEN divided 33 by 34 –

that came to 97%.


and some climate change people are changing this fictional 97% to 99%!

John Cook author of the 2011 book Climate Change Denial:

Head in the Sand and creator of the blog Skeptical Science.

He actually found out of all the 11,944 abstracts or 1.0 percent of the 4,014 expressing an opinion, or .3% and certainly NOT the 97.1% he has stated!

Many of these scientists that he is quoting facts from -- have protested ‘that they has been misinterpreted!

All Cook accomplishes is to undermine the credibility of his other consensus-based assertions and to justify the emphasis that skeptics place on highlighting “uncertainty” and “debate.”

Sifting Through the Internet and Garbage was Difficult

Trying to find out who is right and who is wrong was not only time consuming, but difficult. Who do you believe and who do you think is lying to promote their agenda?

There were many different sites on how the 97% came about. So many lies, mis-information, false news and fabricated media lies. I have come to the conclusion that almost all media is suspect to lies and mis-information.

But it looks like global warming is phony and this is to promote certain people to become rich.

All you have to do is create scare tactics to make people believe and afraid, so you can become very rich.



It is also noted that although some scientists say that people are changing climate –


are stating people don’t affect the climate on a global scale like ‘volcano’s’! When they erupt they can change our climate and it is agreed among scientists that what people do -

doesn’t come close to the output of a volcano.

Old-timers are unfazed by global warming or cooling. They endured the summers of 1934-1936, the hottest in modern American history, without air conditioning.

Dark Winter

In fact John Casey, a former White House national space shuttle engineer tells the truth (as he sees it) about ominous changes taking place in the climate and the sun.

What he Is saying is just the opposite.

Check out his site, listen to his “Dark Winter” a 30-year cold spell that he predicts.

      You may start from industrialization and factory production of goods. It was and still is dictated by ever increasing consumption. Today, consumption is the only yardstick of prosperity and development, which is a faultyidea. Development should be seen as expansion of people's capabilities and freedom, as described by Amartya Sen, Nobel winner economist.

      Everything will fall in right place once development is seen from ths perspective!
