97% Of The Papers We Choose Agree With Our Criteria

This is hilarious.  Cook gets a paper published in which he supposedly studied nearly 12,000 cli-sci papers.  Of course he did.  Of that 12,000 he found only found almost 1/3 of them endorsed the position that humans are causing global warming.  Which he calls a consensus opinion. 

We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming. Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.

So, now, less than 1/3 means consensus!  Well done, John.  well done. 

Of course there would be much more to say about this if this paper was in any way relevant to anything.  But, it isn’t so I’ll just laugh at the 1/3 consensus. 

Readers may recall this is the same Cook who teamed with Lewdy to write a paper about an imaginary survey that was never posted at Cook’s site making bizarre claims about moon landings and such. 

Can anyone tell me why the lunatics are possess this strange obsession?

    His boot lickers are already touting the number. However, like the Fairleigh Dickinson “study”, the reality is far different. A no position is a valid position. Scientists do not take a position on an issue while they are trying to study what is happening. So the true, biased (since they are not random, but chosen by him with no basis for random sampling) number is less than 33%.

    Even he cannot force the fact that over 2/3rds of the paper are of the skeptic position. i.e. WE DON”T KNOW.

    Is it any wonder their models fail?
