An often cited figure is that 97.1 per cent of scientific studies support the view that climate change is real, and caused by humans.

Atmospheric scientist Katharine Hayhoe wrote a damning Facebook post about said study:
Hayhoe wrote particularly critically of those who imply that dissenting voices are suppressed – arguing that they’re not, they’re simply contradicted with evidence.
