The “Science” of Statisticulation
To gain public acceptance for carbon taxes and renewable energy subsidies,
several studies claim a 97% scientific consensus on global warming,
implying that the human causes are all about carbon dioxide or greenhouse
gases; but a closer look reveals a lot of mathematical manipulation goes into
arriving at 97% - a psychological ploy that plays on our primal emotions,
‘herd mentality’ and fear of being the odd man out. Few people know that
the Dutch government has called for the IPCC to be overhauled stating:
“..limiting the scope of the IPCC to human-induced climate change is
undesirable, especially because natural climate change is a crucial part of
the total understanding of the climate system..” Not only is the 97% claim
faulty, the climate predictions of the IPCC exclude an estimated 65%
natural factor influence.
