Apparently absent in Chris Wallace's show preparation was the fact that the UN IPCC's "95%" claim is nothing more than guesswork and has no statistical basis whatsoever. Even Reuters news service recognized this in a 2013 article. Reuters explained that the UN IPCC’s 95% confidence of human causation of global warming was "based on a discussion among the authors," not a scientifically sound statistic. Lord Christopher Monckton called the 95% claim "no more scientific a process than a show of hands." "The IPCC’s pretense that it is 95% confident that most of the warming since 1950 was man-made is transparently rent-seeking guesswork, to which no intelligent journalist should lend the slightest credence," Monckton wrote in 2013.
Christy: 'Premature theories enforced by an explicit consensus building process harm scientific progress because of the questions that don’t get asked and the investigations that aren’t undertaken. As a result, we lack the kinds of information to more broadly understand climate variability and societal vulnerabilities'
