No, thats a BS number. The following image is made from the data taken directly from the Cook Paper. Don't be fooled by the misleading study that was done by John Cook, a guy with a PhD in Cognitive Psychology. I am not making this up, it is them that are using trickery which this chart clearly shows.
From memory, I think it's 97% or more are convinced? So that's where I'd place my bets.
We find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming. Among abstracts expressing a position on AGW, 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.
-Originality: The tests and research done must present something new to the scientific community.
-Detachment: The scientists' reasons for practicing this science must be simply for the expansion of their knowledge. The scientists should not have personal reasons to expect certain results.
-Universality: No person should be able to more easily obtain the information of a test than another person. Social class, religion, ethnicity, or any other personal factors should not be factors in someone's ability to receive or perform a type of science.
-Skepticism: Scientific facts must not be based on faith. One should always question every case and argument and constantly check for errors or invalid claims.
-Public accessibility: Any scientific knowledge one obtains should be made available to everyone. The results of any research should be published and shared with the scientific community.
NO, you are confused, read again what the IPCC has stated, your reference to Non-Linear technology is baffling, where did you pull that from? There is no need for interpretation, it's quite straightforward.

By that you mean Chaos theory and access to Non-Linear technology
The climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore the long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.
Quantum chaos is a branch of physics which studies how chaotic classical dynamical systems can be described in terms of quantum theory. The primary question that quantum chaos seeks to answer is: "What is the relationship between quantum mechanics and classical chaos?" The correspondence principle states that classical mechanics is the classical limit of quantum mechanics. If this is true, then there must be quantum mechanisms underlying classical chaos (although this may not be a fruitful way of examining classical chaos). If quantum mechanics does not demonstrate an exponential sensitivity to initial conditions, how can exponential sensitivity to initial conditions arise in classical chaos, which must be the correspondence principle limit of quantum mechanics? In seeking to address the basic question of quantum chaos, several approaches have been employed:
Quantum mechanics is not chaotic, but probabilistic. It has strict solutions of the equations determining the behavior of particles and fields, but these solution describe and predict probabilities of observation. The wave nature of the underlying reality is a probability wave , i.e. the probability of finding a particle at (x,y,z) at time t fluctuates according to the solution of the equations. It is not a matter wave in the sense of a wave on water, where one can measure the energy carried at different (x,y,z)s . Whenever an elementary partice is measured it appears at a strict (x,y,z) as a point with all its mass. Atoms are composites of elementary particles and follow the same equations and behavior.
Thus the relationship of quantum mechanics with deterministic chaos ( which is the chaos used in physics) is similar to the relationship a Picasso picture has to the atoms and molecules composing it. Deterministic chaos paints a mathematically different view of many particle systems to the one of thermodynamics, and allows to explain and predict macroscopic behaviors of classical systems.

Since then the earth has experienced huge population growth. A couple really cold years resulting in crop failures and there's going to be mass starvation. The world won't be able to react quickly enough. What people don't understand is that if you have widespread killing frost, it's not like you can just throw up a some greenhouses and grow enough to compensate for that. It would happen fast, and decimate the food supply.
Wow, that 1974 CIA paper is quite an eye opener......thx D8Tee for linking it.
