97% of Scientists Do Not Agree with Anthropogenic Global Warming.
Where did this 97% figure originate? It appears to have started with a short 2009
paper by Peter Doran and Maggie Zimmerman of the University of Illinois at Chicago.
In this paper, the announced the results of the two question poll. This poll was
sent to 10,257 “Earth scientists.” Read the rest of this summary at the source:

Analysis of Cook’s (of SkepticalScience.com) 97% claim:
Of 12280 papers, Cook took out the “Don’t Knows”(66% of the samples), and in, essence counted all of the remainder that did not reject the hypotheses that humans are causing global warming as endorsing the “consensus”.
Had he included the “Don’t Knows”, it would be: “32% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.”
Had he included ONLY explicit endorsement, it would be: “8% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.”
In Cooks own words (emphasis added):
We analyze the evolution of the scientific consensus on anthropogenic global warming
(AGW) in the peer-

(Including the lower level of explicit endorsements, Cook’s real number is 8% (999/12280). If you want to stretch the truth to include implications, then you still only get 32% (3933/12280).)
The Cook paper is remarkable for its quality, though. Cook and colleagues studied some 12,000 papers, but did not check whether their sample is representative for the scientific literature. It isn’t. Their conclusions are about the papers they happened to look at, rather than about the literature. Attempts to replicate their sample failed: A number of papers that should have been analysed were not, for no apparent reason.
... The sample was padded with irrelevant papers. An article about TV coverage on
global warming was taken as evidence for global warming. In fact, about three-
As Tol explains, the Cook et al paper used an unrepresentative sample, can’t be replicated,
and leaves out many useful papers. The study was done by biased observers who disagreed
with each other a third of the time, and disagree with the authors of those papers

The Earlier 97% claim:
They surveyed 10,257 Earth Scientists, 3146 responded.
Then they selected 77 responses from published climate scientists to get the 97.4%
claim. Of course most published climate scientists make a living from alarmism -

Example of Scientific Organizarions Endorsing the
Global Warming Scam Against Membership Belief
According to American Meteorological Society (AMS) data, 89% of AMS meteorologists believe global warming is happening, but only a minority (30%) is very worried about global warming.
In contrast to the AMS survey, where all respondents are AMS meteorologists, a majority have Ph.D.s and fully 80% have a Ph.D. or Masters Degree, position statements by organizational bureaucracies carry little scientific weight. For example, a position statement recently published by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and frequently cited as the “definitive” indication of scientific consensus on global warming was authored by a mere 23 persons. Of those 23 persons, only five had Ph.D.s in a field closely related to climate science, an equal number (5) were staffers for environmental activist groups, two were politicians, one was the EPA general counsel under the Clinton administration and 19 of the 23 had already spoken out on behalf of global warming alarmism prior to being chosen for the panel. Clearly the scientific weight of the NAS statement pales in comparison to the AMS meteorologist survey.
Earlier AMS poll:
Only 24 percent of the survey respondents agree with United Nations Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assertion, “Most of the warming since 1950 is very
