Al Gore's "Consensus" Consists of Under 50%

Here's a truth the Goracle will find inconvenient: according to a new survey, less than half of scientists are still buying the threadbare global warming hoax:

Of 528 total papers on climate change, only 38 (7%) gave an explicit endorsement of the consensus. If one considers "implicit" endorsement (accepting the consensus without explicit statement), the figure rises to 45%. However, while only 32 papers (6%) reject the consensus outright, the largest category (48%) are neutral papers, refusing to either accept or reject the hypothesis. This is no "consensus."
The figures are even more shocking when one remembers the watered-down definition of consensus here. Not only does it not require supporting that man is the "primary" cause of warming, but it doesn't require any belief or support for "catastrophic" global warming. In fact of all papers published in this period (2004 to February 2007), only a single one makes any reference to climate change leading to catastrophic results.

But even if global warming is crumbling, the libs still have Larry Craig playing footsie in the men's room, so they won't get stuck without issues.

Hat tip: Slapstick Politics.

This is why oil companies gouge customers for large profits...they have alot of scientists to pay off. You see, the researchers who support man made global warming have "discredited" those who don't because they are paid shills, so they don't count, thus...consensus.

I am getting very tired of the phrase "we need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil" comming out of the mouths of Candidates especially Republicans. How? "well we need to develop a comprehensive plan..(BZZZZTTT!)NEXT! I'm looking for the candidate who says "we nedd to increase our dependance on domestic oil."
