When Fools Attempt Science

 Some of you may recall that class experiment about gossip where the teacher whispers something in the first person's ear then that person whispers it to the next person until everyone has passed the message around and the last person tells the class what they heard.  So it could start out "Tommy is chewing gum in class" and end up "Tommy was shooting a gun in class".

Apparently the same phenomena runs rampant through the leftist narratives about global warming.
"The "97 percent" figure in the Zimmerman/Doran survey represents the views of only 79 respondents who listed climate science as an area of expertise and said they published more than half of their recent peer-reviewed papers on climate change. Seventy-nine scientists—of the 3,146 who responded to the survey—does not a consensus make."
