"90% or greater chance that human actions are influencing the climate." http://www.ipcc.ch/
I'm not show-offy.

Older readers may recall a press conference at Harwell in 1958 when Sir John Cockcroft, Britain’s top nuclear physicist, said he was 90% certain that his lads had achieved controlled nuclear fusion. It turned out that he was wrong. More positively, a 10% uncertainty in any theory is a wide open breach for any latterday Galileo or Einstein to storm through with a better idea."http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article1363818.ece
90% certainty in the scientific community, especially in environmental science, is pretty effing certain. i.e. it's a fact, dummy.
In other words, you're not trained in science. Good to know.
And it still works.
This may be the hardest you've ever dershowitzed. Impressive.
