Quantifying the consensus on global warming in the advocacy science: A cross examination


Arshi Iram

Global warming is the talk of the town in this century, with its detrimental effects already being brought to limelight by the recurring events of massive floods, annihilating droughts and ravaging cyclones throughout the globe. The average global temperatures are higher than they have ever been during the past millennium, and the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere have crossed all previous records. We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming (AGW) in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, examining 115 climate abstracts from 19912014 matching the topics global climate change or global warming. From 1991 to 2014 CO2, CH4 and NOX has increased 27%, 145% and 13% respectively.
