    CLIMATE DENIAL RESEARCH DEEPLY FLAWED

    Scientists tried to redo 38 climate change-denying studies and discovered some major flaws

    Kelly Dickerson, September 9, 2015 (Tech Insider)

    “About 97% of scientists agree not only that climate change is real, but also that human activity, like driving a fossil fuel-burning car, is making it worse…[A] team of seven climate scientists and meteorologists decided to give climate contrarians the benefit of the doubt, picked half of their more popular studies, and tried to redo them…Beyond being unable to replicate most of the results, the team discovered major flaws in the papers…[M] any papers left out essential data, and some even ignored basic physics…

    "...[The three biggest, most common problems were] Climate change deniers cherry-pick the data…[A] 2011 paper tried to show the lunar and solar cycle are responsible for climate change, but they ignored 6,000 years' worth of data that didn't jibe with their idea…[S]ome simply ignored core scientific facts…[Some] argued the greenhouse gases that fuel climate change, including carbon dioxide, don't drive global warming much beyond a particular saturation point…[T]hat idea was disproved as far back as the early 1900s…Climate change deniers can't agree on an alternative theory…And right now there is no compelling evidence and no clear theory for an alternative to human-caused climate change…” click here for more
