A group of researchers decided to take the studies produced by climate change sceptics seriously and attempted to replicate their findings, discovering instead a consistent pattern of methodological flaws.

It is widely known that there is a robust consensus about anthropogenic global warming amongst climate scientists and researchers in related disciplines. Researchers in 2013 looking at papers expressing a position on the matter found that 97 percent of them endorsed the consensus position that human activities are the main cause.

But what about that two-three percent that don’t? For a new study published in the Journal of Applied and Theoretical Climatologythis week, researchers that support the consensus viewpoint decided to take a bit of a detour, and took a deep plunge into the world of climate scepticism.
