Global warming consensus
A global warming consensus has been proposed by advocates of the Global Warming Theory, and is rejected by opponents of the theory.
Advocates say the UN's climate panel (IPCC) represents the consensus the world's scientists. But according to the Associated Press, during the IPCC Summary for Policymakers meeting in April 2007, only 52 scientists participated. The April 9, 2007 AP article by Seth Borenstein reported:
"Diplomats from 115 countries and 52 scientists hashed out the most comprehensive and gloomiest warning yet about the possible effects of global warming, from increased flooding, hunger, drought and diseases to the extinction of species."
