So "...examining 11 944 climate abstracts from 1991–2011  /.../ we find that 66.4% of abstracts expressed no position on AGW, 32.6% endorsed AGW, 0.7% rejected AGW and 0.3% were uncertain about the cause of global warming. ".

Hence it appears to be the view that two thirds of 12000 papers on climate would have been uncertain as to the cause of global warming, if they had expressed the observation that global warming is a thing. (I deduce this from the data given above.)

However, in a follow up study, a half of those one may feel were uncertain, declared themselves of the view that global warming is anthropogenic. So we are left with possibly one third of writers of reviewed papers on climate who are uncertain as to the cause or direction of climate change??

This is not the 'overwhelming majority of climate science writers.'    Or am I missing something?

[I write as a person who rightly or wrongly believes that man made global warming IS an unwanted thing,  btw.]
