Scientists: Actually, we don't think that Mankind is changing the climate

Specifically, only 36% actually do believe this:
Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. 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.

The survey results show geoscientists and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists. Two recent surveys of meteorologists (summarized here and here) revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims.
It's peer reviewed, so Science!  What, you're not one of those bloody Science Deniers, are you?

Was the 36% a modeled percentage or actual measured data? ;)
36% seems a bit high to me.

That's because it was adjusted upward based on current progressive models.

Who cares? This isn'thow science works. It isn't a popularity contest decided by Democratic vote. If the majority is wrong, they're wrong. If only one scientist on earth believes in some theory, it doesn't matter if every other scientist on earth thinks he is a crackpot. If he's right, he's right. If he's wrong, he's wrong

Science by majority is a ploy THEY use. Not us.

Goober you are absolutely correct! The observations and data will either confirm the theory of anthropogenic global warming or not. What a majority of scientists believe SHOULD not influence the data (and yes, I'm aware there have been instances where it did). I was in a rather heated discussion with someone once who was insisting that all "reputable" scientists agreed on AGM. I pointed out that in Gallileo's time, all "reputable" scientists believed the earth was flat and that did not make them right. Shut him right up!
