100% of scientific papers that aren’t shit agree.

/100% of scientific papers that aren’t shit agree.

So you know how there’s that whole “97% of scientific papers on climate change agree anthropogenic global warming is real” thing? Which has the corollary that “3% of papers don’t”?

Well. Someone reviewed that outlying 3%. Guess what they found? No, seriously. You’ll be shocked, I’m sure.

Incidentally, I have a childhood friend who moved to the US as an adult and married a climate scientist. She (the climate scientist, also an ex-pat Aussie) got so sick of, basically, people at dinner parties being like “GEORGE SOROS CONSPIRACY!” that she retrained and got a job doing compliance for a Wall Street finance company. Oh, and also opened a hipster cafe in Brooklyn.

So you see? You see what climate denialism does? It makes otherwise perfectly nice academics get jobs in finance and contribute to gentrification! Talk about damaging effects…
