Global Warming Not Real? Um, I’ll Trust the 97% of Climate Scientists Who Say It Is

From “Legal Case Against EPA Greenhouse Endangerment Finding: ‘Man-Made Climate Change Is Not Certain’”: found at http://thinkprogress.org/green/issue/

“The EPA endangerment finding, Inside Climate News notes, “is based on more than 100 published scientific studies and peer-reviewed syntheses of climate change research” by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program/U.S. Global Change Research Program, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the National Research Council of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences.

Essentially every scientific society in the world — and every agency of the United States government — recognizes that the threat of man-made global warming is a fact. As the National Academy of Sciences wrote in 2010, man-made global warming is a “settled fact“…

Since 2010, the science attributing the unequivocal warming of the planet to fossil-fuel pollution has grown even stronger. It’s now considered “highly likely” that all of the observed warming since 1950 is manmade (and “extremely likely” that most of the warming is manmade).”

Update 3/29/2012:  A great piece penned by a “Republican Meteorologist,” can be found here (climate change is a bipartisan or non-partisan issue).  Read it and weep at the lies and misinformation that he acknowledges is spreading everywhere (Yeah, I’m looking at you, Fox “News”):
