Witnesses All Agree at Congressional Hearing: Climate Science ‘Not Settled’
Committee on Science, Space, and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith: 'The President and others often claim that 97 percent of scientists believe that global warming is primarily driven by human activity. However, the study they cite has been debunked. When asked today whether the science of climate change is settled or if uncertainties remain, witnesses unanimously said that the science is not settled. They also discussed concerns with the IPCC process, including lack of transparency in author and study selection, and inconsistent approaches to data quality, peer review, publication cut-off dates, and the cherry-picking of results.'
