Peer reviewed climate change deniers

Sometimes overwhelming numbers are a stand-in for credibility (or the lack of it). Consider these figures of published peer reviewed papers compiled by James Lawrence Powell*:

November 2012 through December 2013:
9136 authors published 2258 peer-reviewed climate articles
1 author rejected man-made global warming (0.0106 percent)

And the longer view:

For the years 1991-2012:
13,950 peer reviewed climate articles
24 articles rejected global warming (0.17 percent)

Of course, deniers will say “Peer review? Why that’s obviously a global conspiracy!” And you can say, “Since when did human beings, much less scientists, agree on anything so that only 1 out of 9136 people disagreed? That’s one hell of a conspiracy!”
