97 hours of consensus

The science on global warming/climate change is a lot more certain than some people seem to think it is. 97% of climate scientists agree, and only around half of Americans do and a good portion of those don’t realize just how sure the science is.

That’s the reason for 97 hours of consensus; to make people aware of the scientific consensus on the subject, which is a good cause even if the mere fact of consensus isn’t the best argument in their favor.

Year by year, decade by decade, gradually over long periods of time, we see that the earth’s temperature is rising and we know from very careful scientific studies that have been done, that the majority of this warming is due to human production of heat-trapping gases.
Professor Katharine Hayhoe
