Nobody has any idea what 97% of scientists believe.
Isnt that the point the 97% stat is comming from those scientist invloved in a survey- and not all scientists.
Quite a few are regular churchgoers and the like, so their beliefs are not necessarily based on evidence anyway. But it is clear that over 90% of "climate scientsts" need you to believe in AGW, or their funding will cease.
Nothing new here. A previous Archbishop of York said he didn't necessarily believe in god, at least not in the same way as his flock. Now there's an appropriate word.
In fact it was a previous co-chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change who made me a skeptic by opening his lecture on the first IPCC report with "I am a committed christian..." Anyone who says he knows the answer before studying the question is not to be trusted, and that is exactly what CO2-based climate change modellers do. Later in the same lecture he admitted "we know that water is the most important parameter, but as we can't measure it, we have ignored it - see the footnote on page 21" so I'll give him a point for honesty.
Yeah its clear some have an interest in maintaining certain ideas fro grants and funding.
