ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study published in the May 2013 issue of "Environmental Research Letters" by researcher John Cook et al. on scientific endorsement or rejection of man-made global warming. Topics include the consensus in the majority of scientific literature that global warming is caused by humans, the criticism of the study by professor Richard Tol, and the misinformation generated by critics in order to influence public opinion about scientific agreement on global warming.
