Steven F. Hayward (excerpt from Wikipidea) “Steven F. Hayward is an American author, political commentator, and policy scholar. He is a senior resident scholar at the Institute of Governmental Studies at UC Berkeley, and a visiting lecturer at Berkeley’s Boalt Hall Law School. He was previously the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Visiting Professor at Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Public Policy …”

Has the temperature been rising? This is a lecture from 2014. You can start at 6:20 if you want to skip the intro. At 16:20: “96% of all scientist BELIEVE in climate change.” It was a review of abstracts of 11,000 science articles, emphasis on ABSTRACTS. 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on anthropocentric global warming, 32.6% endorsed global warming, 0.7% rejected it, and 0.3% were uncertain. So it is not 97% of all scientist, it is 97% of a third of scientist. (but were aren’t really even counting scientists, we are counting abstracts). Another way to summarize this would be to say that 66% of all scientist in the field have expressed no opinion on the matter.
