Um... no, you will not leave it here:
I'll just leave this here.
So you inadvertently decided to cite an Exxon-funded think tank dedicated to debunking global warming as your research?
The SPPI states it is "a nonprofit institute of research and education dedicated to sound public policy based on sound science. Free from affiliation to any corporation or political party." It does not reveal its funding sources; however, it shares a building and personnel with the Centre for Science and Public Policy, a project of Frontiers of Freedom, which gets its money from the oil industry (a million from ExxonMobil for a start).
Show me a source debunking climate-change and I'll show you the oil fueling it.
...And what about the rest of the scientific community, what do they think about climate change?
So in the face of that overwhelming consensus on human-based climate change, by the most brilliant minds in the world, as posing an issue to the future of humanity, what do you have to say about that?
Scientific opinion on climate change said:
No scientific body of national or international standing has maintained a dissenting opinion; the last was the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, which in 2007 updated its 1999 statement rejecting the likelihood of human influence on recent climate with its current non-committal position.
2001 Following the publication of the IPCC Third Assessment Report, seventeen national science academies issued a joint statement, entitled "The Science of Climate Change", explicitly acknowledging the IPCC position as representing the scientific consensus on climate change science. The statement, printed in an editorial in the journal Science on May 18, 2001, was signed by the science academies of Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, the Caribbean, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, Sweden, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.
2009 In advance of the UNFCCC negotiations to be held in Copenhagen in December 2009, the national science academies of the G8+5 nations issued a joint statement declaring, "Climate change and sustainable energy supply are crucial challenges for the future of humanity. It is essential that world leaders agree on the emission reductions needed to combat negative consequences of anthropogenic climate change".
