LONDON, June 19 (Reuters) - The world should stop arguing about whether humans are causing climate change and start taking action to stop dangerous temperature rises, the president of the World Bank said on Wednesday.
Kim Jim Yong Kim said there was 97 to 98 percent agreement among scientists that global warming was real and caused by human activity.
"If you disagree with the science of human-caused climate change you are not disagreeing that there is anthropogenic climate change. What you are disagreeing with is science itself," Kim told a Thomson Reuters newsmaker event in London.

Totally agree with you on this.
Government get out of the way!
Time to stop arguing about the world being flat - there is 97 - 98% agreement that if you sail to far you’ll fall off the edge.
I wonder if this greedy, money boy has any proof of this. I really doubt it. "97 to 98 percent". ROTFL. What a moron.
“Drop to your knees!”
“You will bow down and accept the Marxist world view of globull warming so we can gain greater power over your life. If you do not submit, it proves you do not worship the god of (false, political) science and you will be stoned to death!”
“There is no free will. You MUST accept globull warming!”
All hail globull warming and the benevolent Marxists espousing it.
100s of trillions of debt to be serviced. Tighten the chains. Tax them for the weather!
Alright I agree. Since there is no climate change, at least anthropomorphic climate change, let's stop arguing!
This is not about climate change or global warming. It is about money. The GD liberals want another avenue to steal from the productive and buy votes from the non-productive after deducting a portion for themselves.
So they don’t want to argue about causes?
“Now we want to spend unlimited amounts of money “repairing that damage”, instead of spending unlimited amounts of money on “prevention projects”.
What BS. Time to stop arguing LOL.
Science is not based on 97 to 98% consensus! Science is definitive.
The only solution is massive redistribution of wealth from developed nations to third-world cesspools.
The last two years here have been hot and very dry. People blame Glo-bull warming, but I’ve seen this before clear back to the 1950s.
Eight years ago summer was the coolest I can ever remember.
Now we are having another very cool and wet summer here.
Can we also blame it on glo-bull warming?
The more they insist the more I am rock solid sure they are lying to us. “Arguing with science itself” Oh please - true and good science has always relied on rigorous debate to hone it’s theories and by the presenting of other theories the original one may be raised or lowered in stature in comparison.
Anyone who silences scientific debate is certainly not in it for the science.
... start taking action to stop dangerous temperature rises...
Why the he!! do they think we are arguing? They are like typical liberals. They are so convinced they are right that they don’t think they need to argue. Interestingly, when they do try to argue they can’t support their position.
This is how you know that, though you are convinced you are right, you may be wrong. It is one of the self checks I do when debating. If I can’t argue my side in a way that a reasonable person can understand my position, just maybe my position is not supportable.
But most liberals are young and they have not reached taht mental level yet.
The 97% - 98% number comes from a recently published paper, here:
It has been thorroughly discredited here:
97 to 98 percent of all statistics are made up.
>> start taking action to stop dangerous temperature rises
Dangerous temperature rises... hmmm. I wonder where they’re writing from; *my* planet isn’t experiencing dangerous temperature rises.
Did they mention what color was the sky on their planet? That might help us figure out where the heck they think they are...
