As most believers of the “human-caused warming” still rely on Cook’s 97% consensus, either as their basis of belief or as a “weapon” to attack the “deniers”, this article is worthy of promotion.
The fraud of the “hockey stick” graph and the revelation that the so-called global average temperature, (even though doctored), has lost any correlation to atmospheric CO2 levels, also provide ample evidence of the CAGW claim being a scam.
Yet the juggernaut political movement to introduce global controls marches on virtually unimpeded because the fraud is extremely widespread.
We can just chip away around the edges of the problem, hoping for a crack to start and penetrate to the core.

Yesterday, we saw how easily debunked the original “97% of scientists agree” turned out to be.
There therefore had to be a renewed attempt by the warmist establishment to make the claim stick, so step forward John Cook with a much more sophisticated scam.
Jose Duarte, expert in Social Psychology, Scientific Validity, and Research Methods, has actually called the Cook paper “multiply fraudulent”, and, as far as I know, Cook has taken no action to challenge the claim. This, as much as anything else, shows just what a con trick the whole business was. How many scientists, after all, would accept being called fraudulent without taking action?
This was the Abstract:
We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, examining 11 944 climate abstracts from 1991–2011 matching the topics ‘global climate change’ or ‘global warming’. We…

Interesting. I enjoy your posts. This is also interesting:
What the climate wars did to science:
The way I look at it is this: The last ice age was about 12,000 years ago when the population on Earth was about a million people. In the ensuing 12,000 years, the population has ballooned to 7½ billion people and about the same number of automobiles, not to mention the industry that came along to power billions of homes for those billions of people, not to mention provide them with jobs, etc. How could all of that not have an impact on the climate? It’s pretty easy to debunk the 97% debunkers, but I shall have to leave that for another day. Gotta move on……….
