Liberals love to pretend the debate over global warming has been settled. To them, either you get behind every idea they have to save the planet from certain doom, or you’re a “denier” who doesn’t believe in science.
(ALLENBWEST) – Of course, there are many people who believe in global warming; they just don’t see the need to panic yet. Some even think action needs to be taken, but believe any action should be given a thorough cost/benefit analysis to weigh its damage to our economy.
This sort of reasonable debate isn’t enough for liberals. Often, any argument against an environmental regulation is met with the retort, “the science is settled, 97% of scientists agree.”
However, a new survey of scientists is calling liberal claims of a climate “consensus” into question. From Forbes:
Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.
The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.
You could say this is an inconvenient truth for liberals. It calls their entire narrative into question. The left’s favorite tactic is to silence dissent so they can get their way, but if more scientists start poking holes in the argument, that strategy won’t work anymore. READ MORE
