Skeptical Science invited 97 of the world's top climate scientists to each write a short paragraph explaining why human-caused climate change is overwhelmingly accepted by the scientific community. It's called "97 Hours of Consensus," with a new statement going online every sixty minutes.

The choice of "97," of course, refers to the percentage of scientists who agree with the findings of the International Panel on Climate Change. If you were to narrow that list to scientists who frequently publish in the field and have a direct background in atmospheric physics, that figure goes up to 99%.


As of this time of writing, there are still many hours to go. All of the statements are archived as they are posted, and can be read by clicking on drawings of the scientists on the site.
