Those substantial majority of scientists
ALL get the same historical temperature data from the same three organizations (NASA, NOAA, and HadCrut). So it really doesn't mean much what this "substantial majority" thinks because they are all looking at what these 3 orgs put out.
And we know for a fact that the data from these 3 organizations has been adjusted and readjusted, that the results of the adjustments has been to cool the past and warm the present, that data has been lost, that they have conspired to keep it from skeptics, etc.
In short, a scenario where a substantial majority of scientists
thinks humans are warming the Earth because they all get the same data from 3 orgs. is no different than say, 'a substantial majority of citizens' thinking Republicans are bad because most of them get their info from the leftist biased MSM.
