Stats like this are bait and switch propaganda are useless when it comes to understanding what is known and what is not known. You will get 97% of scientists agreeing that CO2 is a GHG and so do most skeptics but if you ask a more relevant question such as whether CO2 is serious concern the percentage drops to 80% - still a majority but 20% is a significant number who think it is not a serious concern.

BTW - I have explained this distinction many times but Omni keeps posting this meaningless stat over and over like a bot. It is a good illustration why it is so difficult to have a rational discussion on this topic.

no - respective study percentages vary between 90%-100%; a key determiner is (should be) climate science expertise based on active publishing... and 'agreement' is certainly more than your trivialized "CO2 is a GHG". The real agreement aligns with an acceptance of IPCC tenets of Anthropogenic Climate Change. You know, that lil' thingee the waldo forever reminds you of... that lil' thingee you won't accept - that makes you a denier! Specifically, an acceptance that, "anthropogenic greenhouse gases have been responsible for “most” of the “unequivocal” warming of the Earth's average global temperature over the second half of the 20th century".

remind the waldo again: the study that speaks to your referenced 20% of 'scientists' stating they think CO2 is not a serious concern - thanks in advance...
