Who really believes in Human-caused global warming?

Peer-Reviewed Survey Finds Majority Of Scientists Skeptical Of Global Warming Crisis [2013]


Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.


Taken together, these four skeptical groups numerically blow away the 36 percent of scientists who believe global warming is human caused and a serious concern.


Interesting data and discussion. However, there is this article which reads the cited study exactly reversed!

In a Forbes op-ed, James Taylor takes a study that prominently reveals the anti-science influence of oil and gas companies, and spins it to suggest that serious, substantive disagreement exists among relevant scientists on climate change. This could not be further from the truth, as evidenced by the very study he cites, as well as numerous other studies that have surveyed climate scientists.


So according to this second article, the wrong interpretation in the Forbes article is basically due to the influence of oil and gas companies.

How am I going to know what is really happening?
I still believe that Science is a way to get to the truth and it should not be a matter of majority...
