Prager U asks whether 97% of climate scientists really agree

By now you’ve heard it countless times: “97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is real.” Taken at face value, it’s a convincing-sounding statement that the science of climate change is indeed “settled.” But have you ever wondered where the “97%” figure comes from?

In the video below, Alex Epstein, Director of the Center for Industrial Progress and author of “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels,” reveals the shady source of “97%” and exposes how leftists deceptively use this appeal to authority to try to manipulate Americans into supporting their political agenda.

Watch the video and learn about where this statistic came from, why no one with intellectual honesty should ever use it, and how we can protect ourselves from manipulative scare tactics disguised as scientific claims.
