Think climate scientists disagree about global warming? Think again!

A post in Dr. Jeff Masters Wunderblog sheds some light on the overwhelming agreement among climate scientists that human activity is affecting the earth’s climate:

According to a 2007 Newsweek poll, 42% of Americans believe that “there is a lot of disagreement among climate scientists about whether human activities are a major cause” of global warming”.

However, the results of a poll that appears in this week’s edition of the journal EOS, Transactions, American Geophysical Union, reveals that the public is misinformed on this issue. Fully 97% of the climate scientists who regularly publish on climate change agreed with the statement, “human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures”.
