‘The science is settled’ AGW study ‘update’ of the day

This is the title of a story at Salon.com that many global warmist Gore-bots are pointing to: 10,883 out of 10,885 scientific articles agree: Global warming is happening, and humans are to blame

10,883 out of 10,885 studies agree with Al Gore? Wow, that’s a lot.

From the article:

Powell went through every scientific study published in a peer-review journal during the calendar year 2013, finding 10,885 in total (more on his methodology here). Of those, a mere two rejected anthropogenic global warming.

Wow, did he really wade through over 10,000 peer reviewed studies?

Check out this “update” way at the bottom of the story:

On his methodology, Powell notes, he only verified that two out of the 10,885 articles he found concluded that anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is wrong: “It is a safe assumption that virtually all the other 10883 do not reject — that is, they accept — AGW but I can’t say for sure that each one of them does.”

Ha! It’s a “safe assumption” because it’s what he believes (or wants) to be true. Some science, eh?

Imagine Einstein “proving” a theory by writing ten percent of it on a chalkboard and then saying “it’s a safe assumption the rest works out the way I said so just shut up and believe it.”
