The short answer to "what is an overwhelming number of scientists" can be defined as follows
1. If they agree with me, I may define that number at my whim and pleasure; or
2. If they don't, such a number can only be found in the imaginary set; and
3. If they annoy me, the number is always one too many

Happy Friday (for me)

Karen,, I am curious--how do we determine what the overwhelming number of 
scientists believe ?or not believe. Of the 100 or so scientisst who I might 
personally know, almost all of them believe that concern over global warming is 
nonsense. Of course, the number of scientisists who I might personally know is a 
small frection of the total number, but I suspect it might be a representative 
sample. Has anyone done a statistically valid survey on the subject?
As to what do I believe-----
??? I believe I'll have another beer.
