The facts about the 3% climate denial papers
We always here that 97% of the peer-reviews scientific papers on climate change agree. What about the other 3%?

What were the errors? "Many had cherry-picked the results that conveniently supported their conclusion, while ignoring other context or records.

And of course, sometimes the papers just ignored physics altogether."
