Very hard to believe there are still people out there denying science in favor of these opinion pieces.

That does not imply that 97% believe that man made global warming is enough to worry about.

Since I don't want to be accused by you of simply cherry picking facts to refute out of 4 hours of lecture (I am sure there are some points that are actually valid), you can choose.  


Eliminating those who expressed no opinion from the calculation leads to 1% of those expressing an opinion stating that we caused most global warming.  If you think I am going to quibble about 1% versus 0.3%, you are out of your mind.  Nobody says it's all natural, just that man made global warming is not enough to worry about.


You do realize that the only difference between some, most and all would the speed of change? 

Also, since some and most are adverbs it is up to each individuals interpretation of their meaning on where they classify their position on the issue.  Since they looked at papers as early as 1991 and real scientists are very conservative and do not want to state what may not be happening, the very fact that there are that many saying man is contributing is eye opening.  Again, the number who say man is not the cause is 0.00%  The natural carbon cycle had kept at the carbon level at 280 PPM for 10,000 years until the Industrial Age.  Why don't you educate us how the cycle has suddenly changed and has risen at an unprecedented rate.

As far as their "experts":

 

Tim Ball, a "scientist" who has fudged his own credentials and is funded by the fossil fuel industry (follow the money).  This "man of science" also believes in Creationism.

 

Alex Newman, a journalist.

 

Jim Lee, other than running his own website, appears to have no credentials at all.

 

Lord Monckton is a journalist not a scientist.

 

Willie Soon is funded by the Oil and Coal industries and has claimed the warming is due to solar variation, a very easy claim to refute.

 

Your 4 hour series is little more than 4 hours of lies and propaganda.

 

 


Ad hominem.  You cannot logically refute anything that they say, such as this:

 

GlobalWarmingFraud.png

 

 


It is not an ad hominem, since you didn't post any points, just a series of hour lectures by people who are not subject matter experts. 

 

The study (Cook et al) reviewed peer-reviewed literature from 1991 to 2011 and those are the numbers that they found.  The first logical fallacy is that they are assuming the 7930 extracts that had "no opinion" means that they disagree with anthropogenic global warming, when it means nothing of the kind.  In terms of some warming, you could think that man is causing as much as 99% of it, but if you think there is some natural causation as well, then you are placed in this category.  You are implying there is a large disagreement about anthropogenic warming, when there is not.  

 

If you would like to actually discuss any points out of their 4 hour diatribe, pick specific ones and I would be happy to.


"The first logical fallacy is that they are assuming the 7930 extracts that had "no opinion" means that they disagree with anthropogenic global warming, when it means nothing of the kind."

 

The old liberal mind reader trick strikes again!.  It clearly says, "Expressed no opinion."  You need to provide evidence of what the opinions of those who didn't express one are.

 

"If you would like to actually discuss any points out of their 4 hour diatribe, pick specific ones and I would be happy to."

 

Ditto you.

Your ad hominem attack is irrelevant because you failed to logically refute anything that was said.  In particular, I want to see a rebuttal to this:
