I have a question for you. From the article:

In 2009 an American Meteorological Society survey showed that only 24% of on-air meteorologists agreed with the statement, "Most of the warming since 1950 is VERY LIKELY human induced."

Can you explain? I thought since day 1 you told us that 97% of scientists were in agreement? Are meteorologists not trained in science and thus "scientists"?

Seems contradictory to me. Perhaps you can fix the confusion brought about about because of this GLARING contradiction? Is it 97% that agree or 24%? I'd love to know so, have at it. My listening ears are ON! wink
