When it comes to climate change, Tom Fletcher can quote Leonardo DiCaprio or Neil Young, or whoever he wants, but…hey, why not go to the experts?
About 97 per cent of climate scientists say climate change is real and a man made problem (go.nasa.gov/1zmXghN)
A survey of 928 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 (bit.ly/1QT3n2g).
A follow-up study by the Skeptical Science team of over 12,000 peer-reviewed abstracts on the subjects of ‘global warming’ and ‘global climate change’ published between 1991 and 2011 found that of the papers taking a position on the cause of global warming, over 97 per cent agreed that humans are causing it (bit.ly/1mkbv0z). The scientific authors of the papers were also contacted and asked to rate their own papers, and again over 97 per cent whose papers took a position on the cause said humans are causing global warming.
Oh, they also agree, contrary to Mr. Fletcher, that rising C02 levels are a considerable part of causation of rising temperatures, not the opposite.
How about we think of it as medical issue, which it is, as our planet is very sick.
If you have a medical problem and you consult all the MDs and 97 per cent recommend a treatment, while three per cent do not, who you gonna go with?
