Climate Scientists Views On Climate Change
a survey Hans von Storch and Dennis Bray
In 1996 and 2003 we surveyed the opinions on climate change held by
climate scientists. The results of these surveys have been subject to
many misuses and erroneous claims. Some have selected individual statements out of context (scroll down to number 5) to bolster their claims, while others have argued that the 2003 part of the survey would be strongly biased by skeptics misusing the online-sampling for multiple submissions...
On the skeptical side, the survey has often been used to create the
impression that most scientists were not in support of anthropogenic
causes of ongoing climate change: Specifically, it was noted that “For
example more climate scientists ‘strongly disagree’ than ‘strongly
agree’ that climate change is mostly the result of anthropogenic
causes.” This interpretation is certainly biased.
