Talk about your false equivalencies....
Okay kids.... given the choice, would we trust:
a) what someone else says someone's research says, or
what the researcher says their research says?
If we trust what a researcher says their research says... We find that more researchers think their paper stats support for AGW than an abstract rating along would suggest. Gaaaasssp!
That's the ONLY thing we can draw from the abstract ratings, precisely because the authors were given no chance to weigh in on Inconclusive. It is completely possible more of them would have marked their papers as inconclusive than what the abstract readings suggested but to think that is the case is an assumption, and a bad one.
It is good to see, though, that you have now admitted you would rather trust the researchers than a third party source. With that, why don't you go and read other research on the subject? Why not read the other "97%" studies? Why not read the literature itself?
