Those arguing for action against the perceived threat they call variously Catastrophic Anthropgenic Global Warming, Climate Change, Climate Disruption or whatever new name they can come up with to try to keep it alive have long relied on the argument that there is overwhelming scientific consensus about it and the “the science is settled”.
In another blog I have argued that consensus has no bearing on scientific accuracy, and that no science is ever settled. AGW believers say that is nonsense.
Well, it now seems there is scientific consensus that AGW is incorrect, unscientific, fraudulent, and on the data available so far, most probably plain wrong:

In the face of this, look out for AGW supporters declaiming that consensus has no bearing on accuracy…
