Re: “New documentary Merchants of Doubt exposes the art of spin

Glenn, you stated in your review, "The current score, say analysts who have mined the data, is 928 published papers to zero." Which analysts are you referring to? What papers were they looking at?

In reality of the abstracts of 11,944 climate-related papers published in the reviewed journals over the 21 years 1991-2011, only 41 (0.3%) were found to have stated explicitly that most warming since 1950 was manmade (Legates et al., 2013).

Why is it necessary to "exercise the art of spin" to make your point? Are you not afraid that doing this will negatively impact your credibility? Do you think like Brian Williams that no one will ever fact check what you say?
