Peer Reviewed survey finds Majority of Scientists Skeptical of Global Warming
A peer reviewed study of 1077 scientists published in Organization Studies and reported in Forbes magazine( www.forbes.com) by James Taylor ( 13 February 2013) has found that the majority of these scientists believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming. Only 36 percent of these geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis. Also two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims. Indeed leading American meteorologist Tim Kelley of WLNE TV in Providence Rhode Island said that the big storm Sandy that hit New York recently was not unprecedented. He said the 1938 hurricane was worse and was followed by major hurricanes in 1944 and 1954, three large hurricanes in 16 years. He went on to say that increasing evidence from around the world shows that the main driver of terrestrial climate is the sun. He said that the data shows no correlation at all between antropogenic CO2 emissions and climate change. An interesting aspect of the Organization Studies survey is the unmistakably biased alarmist bent of the survey takers who in their ignorance frequently used terms such as "deniers"
